Beasley’s Chicken and Honey / Raleigh, NC
Opened in 2011 along with 2 other Ashley Christensen ventures in an old Piggly Wiggly building. She was awarded James Beard Best Chef: Southeast 2014 and has gained national attention from such publications as Bon Appétit, The New York Times, Southern Living and Garden & Gun along with an appearance on Iron Chef. Beasley’s Chicken + Honey is an perfect tribute to fried chicken and southern sides. Chicken was southern fried, Biscuits and Gravy were awesomeness and if you are a Mac & Cheese connoisseur the “Pimento Mac-n-Cheese Custard”, INSANE good! You know when the Bar Snacks include Pecan Smoked Chicken Wings, Crispy Cheese Grit Fries, and Fried Bologna in Sorghum Dijon Mustard, you are in for a sweet ride.
