Rosscoe's off to shaky first flight

I've been seeing photos circulating over the weekend of food from the new Rosscoe's (House of Chicken & Waffles) in Bronzeville (3947 S. King Dr., 773-536-3300), and I have to say that I'm not too impressed.

Apparently, neither was The Stew, which filed this report. Also? I can see some drama happening soon with this name. Why didn't the owners just come up with their own brand instead of biting off the original in Los Angeles?!

On a similar note, I'm hearing some good buzz about the fried chicken & waffles at Kitsch'n On Roscoe (2005 W. Roscoe St., 773-248-7372). They've been serving it on the menu for several years—with Belgian-style waffles and ancho honey—on the dinner menu, and it's become so popular that it's now also on the daytime menu with a boneless breast.
