This chicken-frying establishment was named after the owner/executive chef’s great-grandmother, Lucille, the first African-American businesswoman of Texas. Chef Chris Williams serves Southern-style dishes with European twists, to make his dishes both familiar and unique. Freshness is key, and they prove it with a backyard garden that supplies much of their produce. When it comes to the fried chicken, "Yard Bird" as they call it, freshness is not spared.
