South City Fried Chicken is Back at Lunch! (New)

Between 8th and 9th on Spring Street
in Downtown Los Angeles,
you’ll find Preux & Proper
and their South City Fried Chicken lunch menu.

Due to COVID 19,
this restaurant is now Closed.
August 2020

If you follow me, you’ll probably remember 
my visit to South City Fried Chicken post
when they were at Corporation Food Hall
down the street.  See it HERE.

They’re now back at  Preux & Proper
with their all-time favorites...
(Served at Lunch Only)

Nashville Fried Chicken Sandwich 

Served with an overnight buttermilk brined
premium Georgia chicken breast, Nashville rub, 
chili oil, house-made pickles, and cookout slaw 
on a buttered bun.

This spicy sandwich can be ordered as
hot / xxx / reaper / hellfire

I’m already sweating...

A lot of choices to choose from...

Monday - Saturday
11 AM to 4 PM

But maybe something from the bar first...

They have really good cocktail too.

Chef Sammy Monsour 

The chef explaining all of their proteins and 
ingredients are from sustainable sources and
local farms.  They also grow their own micros,
as shown by the chef.

As someone who works with restaurants 
and chefs, not many use sustainable sources
to this extent, although more and more are
using local farms.
