Seattle fried-food lovers sign up months in advance to get a crack at the crispy chickens served up every Monday at Spring Hill in West Seattle.
Offered as part of a family-style dinner ($98 for four people) that also includes mashed potatoes, cornbread, spaetzle, brussel sprouts, and a salad, the chicken has drawn fans far and wide, including the good people at Travel and Leisure.
But in the immortal words of Guns N Roses: “nothing lasts forever, and we both know hearts can change.” And sadly this truth extends to the hearts beating inside the good people that fry the chickens behind the line at Spring Hill. Chef Mark Fuller announced today via Twitter that July 11, 2011 will be the last of its crispy bird gatherings.
Now, I do realize there are a few months between then and now but I also know that spaces will fill up fast. So if you want to experience the full gorgeous gluttony, you better get on it. Call the restaurant for reservations.
