Fried Chicken on Polk St.

Anyone able to compare Street (Sunday night only fried chicken dinner) and Tablespoon (former incarnation had fried chicken, and I'm not sure this one does)?

I've had the version at Street, which was very good. Four pieces of chicken, mixed white and dark meat, not overly battered, very crispy outside with great moist chicken within. (Side note: you cannot request all one or the other, even if you're willing to pay extra, so that was annoying as I don't like dark meat chicken). Can't remember the price, but I believe it was between $15 and $20. Plate comes with mashed potatoes (ask for them without the gravy as they are better stand-alone -- gravy was brown and did not seem homemade), cut corn, very good cabbage coleslaw (not overly mayonnaise-y), and, if you add it, cornbread -- also good, not too sweet, good crumb texture. Cornbread got soggy on the bottom where either gravy or water from the cut corn had hit it, so at the risk of sounding like an incredibly picky person, I'm going to ask for it on a separate plate next time. Ha. But definitely worth going back.

Any thoughts on Tablespoon's version, if they still have it?
