Whatever you get at Ad Hoc will be good, but there was a time when people used to book a table there hoping that fried chicken would be on the menu. And if it wasn’t, they’d still leave happy, but with some sadness around the edges. Then Addendum opened. It’s located right behind Ad Hoc and every Thursday from 11am-2pm you can walk up and get their famous fried chicken without having to wear both pairs of your lucky socks and cross your fingers to make sure they have it.
