Redcrest on East Passyunk only has a couple of tables and a small bar against the wall, but if you’re having a bad week and just need to decompress with some fried chicken, this is the place you want to be. The fried chicken is why you’re here and you can get it a bunch of different ways, like in a sandwich, by itself, or in wing form. They also have a wide range of sides and sauces, so feel free to get creative.
