As far as we know, Stillwater in Downtown Boston is the only place in the city that serves Ritz cracker crusted fried chicken. It’s good (because how could that not be good) and the rest of the menu is filled with reliably solid southern-ish things, like smoked pork mac and cheese and the creole veggie burger. They also have a small patio next to the all the bamboo of the Chinatown part of the Greenway, making this a good option if you’re downtown and want something that will keep a lot of people in a group happy.
