If you've recently ventured through the booming neighborhood of Pendleton, you have most likely come across the storefront for Cincy's newest fried chicken eatery, CHX. With an adorably inviting yellow chick popping up from the left window pane, the eatery has been telling Cincinnatians to "set your alarm clucks" for the past few months. And while we've seen our fair share of chicken spots popping up across the city over the past year, our anticipation for CHX hasn't wavered.
The time has come — the team behind CHX announced that it will officially open its doors this Friday, Feb. 8.
CHX is owned and operated by Hickory Wald — the team behind 3 Points Urban Brewery, Nation Kitchen and Rhinehaus — and will offer two different brined and golden-fried finishing options for guests, crispy or hot. You can order your preferred style chicken in sandwich form, in salads or as their signature Bantys, which are "lump-sized" chicken pieces named after a wild and soulful breed of Indonesian chickens called "Bantam."
Guests will be able to wash down their fried chicken with a frosty beer at next door's 3 Points Urban Brewery, where customers will have the option to order food from their phones with a table locator code, or from the bartender.
CHX, 1211 Broadway St., Pendleton, chxcincy.com.
