Sweet Chick is 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.
