Luthers Chicken Toronto

Fried chicken joint to open inside Dundas West bar

Luther's Chicken is set to launch in mid-April within Dundas West cocktail bar Churchill. Similar to how Caplansky's got its start inside The Monarch, co-owners Kyle Hough (formerly of La Cubana) and Knickoy Robinson will take over the small, generally unused kitchen onsite to offer a menu of buttermilk fried chicken and essential sides like macaroni salad, collard greens, coleslaw, green beans and biscuits.

Food and drink billing will be handled separately, but there's talk of some menu crossover in the form of sweet tea or kool-aid cocktails. Or you could just order an Old Fashioned (bourbon) and fried chicken like they do it in the South. The kitchen plans to operate nightly from 5pm to 1am and might also do family style chicken buckets for take-away. Stay tuned to the restaurant's Instagram feed for details on the exact opening date.
