Louisiana Famous Fried Chicken - coming to downtown Oakland

Marc Wallace | Feb 2, 2005 11:08 AM

The subject line says it all. ;-)

On my way to work, as I walked past 22nd and Broadway, I saw workmen outside what used to be a pretty seedy looking Chinese-American N-item steam table place. There's a big sign on the window saying a "Louisiana (Famous) Fried Chicken" is coming soon.

I assume that "soon" means "three years or more", since that seems to be the trend in downtown Oakland. After the teases of Luka's and Breads of India, I'm not holding my breath.

Looks like Louisiana is a big chain in LA, but a newcomer to Oakland.
