In annual City Paper polls, Early Bird regularly wins Best Chicken and Waffles—and general manager Daniel Infinger verifies that they sell the most in town. The secret is in the double breading. “We use a ground pecan and flour breading,” he says, “so there’s a nutty crust on the chicken.” A hint of cinnamon flavors the Belgian waffle batter, while on top of the chicken, there’s a honey mustard sauce. “Last Sunday, we fed 480 people and 170 ordered our chicken and waffles. I’d say people love them, all right,” says Infinger. earlybirddiner.com
