We are so happy to welcome Linda and Everett Reid, formerly of L&E Restaurant, back to Chester. And we think their new concept is a winning one (and once you see the menu you’ll understand the name. It’s hard to figure out what to offer in a tiny town that is rife with restaurants, but everyone should warm to this idea: chicken and burgers with a French twist and relatively easy-on-the-wallet prices. With a nod to the current hot chicken craze, you might go for the Spicy Fried Creole Chicken with Pimento Mac & Cheese. January comfort food at its best and my husband happily plowed through the slightly burning chunks). Coq au Vin is hard to resist on a cold night, and this tasty offering at $19 hit all the right notes. While the emphasis is on chicken and burgers, vegetarians have options, too, like the Beyond Unbelievable Burger, salads (The North African hummus is a good idea) and sides. Pot de creme, apple crisp, and warm gingerbread cake round out the menu and carefully selected French wines by the glass are available. With nothing above $20, we’ll be adding Hot French Chix to our regular restaurant rotation.
