A fast-casual restaurant that focuses on a Southern-style spicy fried chicken is on its way to the region.
According to an article from Eater Boston, Hot Chix is looking to open somewhere in the Boston area, with current possibilities being such spots as the Berklee area, Boston University, Inman Square in Cambridge, and Union Square in Somerville. The people behind the planned eatery include Alex Kim (general manager at Eventide Fenway), Will Yoo (owner of two Charleys Philly Steaks locations), and Alex Nystedt (former general manager of Sportello), with Nystedt saying that "Boston has a lot of great Korean fried chicken, but it's lacking in the Nashville hot style," which is typically made using a paste that includes cayenne pepper. If all goes well, Hot Chix could be opening sometime this summer--and until then, the business will be popping up at restaurants, bars, and event spaces around the local area.
