State Park is inspired by the nostalgia of summer vacations at questionably-seedy park campgrounds. We’re not sure about you, but we certainly never had chicken katsu sandwiches or BBQ spaghetti on our family trips - just a whole load of ice-puck patties. There are also a whole host of drinks available here, including some spiked slushies - after a few rounds of those with fried chicken, you might start to believe staycations can be really fun. State Park is open for outdoor dining, takeout, and delivery.

Shy Bird is a counter-service chicken place in Kendall Square that’s also, weirdly, not a counter-service place, thanks to a full bar.
