Street where guests can savor bowls of seafood and pickled veggies over rice or greens.

Atlanta, GA – Richards Southern Fried
What does a fine-dining Chef do after stints at three noted dining establishments across the metro-Atlanta area do for an encore, he opens a fried chicken concept.  Chef Todd Richards plans a mid-July opening for his casual fried chicken unit at 99 Krog Street, NE.  The menu will follow the “hot” chicken trend with three types, classic, hot and “Richards Hot.”
