There is a big adult play area in the courtyard.

Quite a few choices on the menu but I’m focused on trying the fried chicken.  Batter was very crunchy and the chicken was tender and juicy.  There were some tasty spices in the batter too.  Sadly I don’t like Tabasco sauce which was the dominate flavor.  Next time I’m in the mood for $15 gourmet fried chicken I’m going to Streetcar Merchants.

Smaltz fried fries which were french fries fried in chicken fat which had a delicious flavor.  Bold potato flavor reminds me of the fries at The Field.

I don’t like the chicken here but the fries are great and the big chicken is really cute like the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man.

    I’ve wanted to visit this place. And siting of Chef Blais? That’s unfortunate you didn’t like the fried chicken as much. I’m hoping to visit Streetcar this weekend! I want those whole chicken wings!
