Just had lunch at Willie Mae's

Arrived at 11:00 anticipating potential crowd. Until about 10 minutes before leaving, we were the only people there. The fried chicken was outstanding, but part of the vibe of the place pre-K was the great mix of people. Hopefully, that will return soon. I was interested to learn that Willie Mae herself has now retired. This was news I'd not heard reported previously. The staff was extremely polite and welcoming, however. They are open for lunch only, from 11:00-3:00 Mon-Fri. They will open on Saturdays when special events are occurring in the city. I must admit that I am perplexed by the lack of media attention on the reopening. However, I am also full of fried chicken at the moment, and that is a very good thing.
