In response to the ongoing national fried chicken sandwich craze pitting Popeye’s against Chick-fil-A, the celebrated neighborhood bar Service Bar in Shaw is preparing to kick-off their new rotating monthly local fried chicken sandwich culinary series – ‘FRIED’.

Beginning Wednesday, December 18, from 5 pm until close – the talented team at Service Bar will be sharing creative twists on the fried chicken sandwich featuring some of the DC area’s most celebrated chefs.
The ‘FRIED’ creative culinary series will launch to the public this evening featuring critically-acclaimed Chef Kevin Tien of Hot Lola’s and Emilie’s.
The series will feature a new local chef and their fried chicken sandwich each month for the next six months.
Chef Kevin Tien’s sandwich will feature a juicy and flavorful fried chicken thigh, slaw, pickles, and comeback sauce served on a sesame seed bun.
Each month a new local chef will have the opportunity to debut their version of the perfect fried chicken sandwich with additional celebrated local chefs to be announced in the coming weeks including celebrated Executive Chef Johanna Hellrigl of soon-to-open Mercy Me, amongst others. A portion of proceeds from the sales of all fried chicken sandwiches will be donated to each featured chef’s local charity of choice.
Chef Tien has selected the Human Rights Campaign – HRC – as his charity of choice.
Reservations are not required and the fried chicken sandwiches will be offered on a limited first-come-first-served basis throughout each month.
