Joe & Larry’s Chicken Shack to feature Nashville-style hot chicken

Michael Crouch, Executive Chef at Bistro 1860, 1765 Mellwood Ave., will open Joe & Larry’s Chicken Shack later this spring in the little building behind the restaurant on the corner of Mellwood and Brownsboro Rd. The very casual dining place carries the names of the fathers of Crouch and his business partner.

The menu, according to Crouch, will feature fried chicken at three different levels of spicy hotness–one level of which will be not spicy at all. The side dishes will be just what one would expect from a little chicken shack–mac & cheese, potato salad, green beans, mashed potatoes, potato wedges, cream-style corn and braised greens.There will be weekly or daily specials as well, based on local produce availability.

For dessert, what else but blackberry or peach cobbler? Joe & Larry’s Chicken Shack will be open for lunch and dinner, for dine-in or carry out. Crouch is shooting for an opening sometime after the madness of Derby.
