Sweet Chick is a the place to score chicken and waffles, plus other Southern-inspired soul foods. The one-room Williamsburg space has a down-country, homey feel with a huge blackboard, waffle irons dangling from the walls, and wainscoting salvaged from a retired fireman in Bed Stuy. But the main draw here is the soul food -- the fried chicken is made in a sweet tea brine, a house spice blend, and comes with biscuit and collard slaw. And of course you need to pair it with waffles, which come in flavors like bacon and cheddar or mushroom and rosemary. Sweet Chick also has a killer pork tenderloin, sloppy joe's, mac n' cheese, and the best mistake ever: jerky fries that the chef accidentally discovered one day when there was some extra jerky around. And because it wouldn't be southern food without dessert, save room for double chocolate pudding, or the most simple and awesome thing ever: cookies and milk. Rounding things out is the menu of southern-inspired cocktails -- drink moonshine out of mason jars, or order yourself a "Tiger Woods, Y'all," made from cognac, honey bourbon, and a Arnold Palmer soda specially made by Brooklyn Soda Works.
