Lily P’s is a fried chicken restaurant that also has a raw bar, because every self-respecting restaurant in New England must have a raw bar. The fried chicken comes in three different forms (original, hot, or black pepper honey), and it’s both moist and crispy. There are fried chicken sandwiches here as well, and if you’re looking to nap through the next three hours of post-lunch meetings you have on your schedule, we recommend getting one.
