Bucktown On West Fountain

Fried chicken and biscuits and banana pudding? And honey butter? I don’t know what that is, but I know I need it. Just reading the review of this place in today’s ProJo made me ravenous. Bucktown, a new little restaurant just down from Luongo Square, also serves up shrimp and oysters and fish, and I’ve been meaning to get to this place since I first slammed on the brakes and took this picture. Certainly, food critic Gail Ciampa has never steered me wrong.

The chicken was moist, the oysters tender and the shrimp tasty. The biscuits were of a texture that they didn’t fall apart with each bite. They were elevated by sweet, whipped, perfect honey butter. And that banana pudding with the vanilla wafers at the bottom? It was one of the best versions I’ve tried.

Adam Mir, whose résumé includes a stint as former sous chef at Cook and Brown, and Ashley Faulkner, another JWU grad who has decided to stick around, opened Bucktown last summer. The restaurant is open 7 days from 11:30am to 10pm, with seating at a kitchen counter, community tables, and as long as the weather holds out, out front.

Bucktown, 471 West Fountain Street, (directions), 401.343.0441
