ANDERSONVILLE — Parson’s Chicken & Fish will debut its Andersonville location next week.
Parson’s will open 11 a.m. Wednesday at 5721 N. Clark St., spokesperson Carrie Sloan said. A ribbon cutting with the Andersonville Chamber of Commerce and local officials will be held.
The Andersonville location of the popular chicken chain will be open 11 a.m.-11 p.m. daily and will take walk-in seating only.
Parson’s is famous for its fried chicken, Negroni slushies and large outdoor patios. It is part of the Land and Sea Dept. group, which includes Logan Square’s Lost Lake, Lonesome Rose, Longman and Eagle, Milk Room and other businesses.
The location in Andersonville will serve Parson’s staple menu items and will have a large outdoor seating area. It will also have an indoor dining room, a bar area with seating and an outdoor shipping container bar on the patio, Sloan said. The dining room will have large windows to keep air circulating.
Parson’s is taking over the former Stone Fox space.
Stone Fox was one of Andersonville’s newest eateries when it abruptly closed in late 2019. The North Clark Street location previously housed Pork Shoppe, which closed in February 2018 after a two-and-a-half-year run.
Officials with Land and Sea Dept. told the Tribune they had eyed the Stone Fox location before that restaurant moved in. The location meets Parson’s criteria of having a large space with outdoor seating, they told the paper.
Parson’s also opened a West Town location in April.
With the Andersonville location, Parson’s will have four local outposts, including the original in Logan Square and one in Lincoln Park. A location in Nashville is temporary closed and will reopen next year, according to its Facebook page.
