Hattie's Restaurant named one of Food and Wine's best fried chicken establishments in the U.S.
The online version of Food and Wine magazine recently published an article covering the best fried chicken across the United States with Hattie’s Restaurant on Phila Street and Hattie’s Chicken Shack on Route 50 in Wilton placing among Food and Wine’s top 31 selections.
“It’s a great honor to be chosen among the many fried chicken establishments across America,” said co-owner and chef Jasper Alexander in a statement.
Hattie’s has been a Saratoga staple for the local dining scene and community since 1938 when it was founded by original owner Hattie Austin.
Over the past 75 years, Hattie’s fried chicken has gained national recognition as a favorite of many summer track-goers and with publicity appearances such as in 2006, when Hattie’s Restaurant was featured on celebrity chef Bobby Flay’s Food Network TV show, “Throwdown! with Bobby Flay.” A panel of celebrity judges chose Hattie’s as that episode’s undisputed winner.
