Luella’s Owners to Open Bucktown Fried Chicken Restaurant Next Week

Luella’s Gospel Bird is buttermilk fried chicken that’s similar to New Orleans barbecue.

Luella’s Gospel Bird prepares to take flight on Damen

The new Bucktown restaurant from the owner and chef at Luella’s Southern Kitchen should open next week. Luella’s Gospel Bird will feature fried chicken from Darnell Reed as Reed opens his second restaurant. The opening date is Wednesday, November 7 at 2009 N. Damen Avenue, according to Reed. That’s the former Sublime Sushi space near the northeast corner of Armitage and Damen.

Reed serves up fried chicken at his Lincoln Square restaurant. His second restaurant tweaks that recipe, smothering the bird with a tangy Creole sauce that provides a moderate level of heat. Shrimp and grits, biscuits, and a brunch menu will also be offered. One brunch item is a French toast made with challah, blueberry compote, Chantilly cream, and a brown sugar glaze.

It’s a small space and Reed hopes that locals in neighborhoods like Wicker Park and Logan Square will take advantage of delivery options. However, Reed knows how popular brunch time is for the neighborhood and he’s eager to show off a top-notch brunch. Look for more details next week.
