One of Chicago’s most celebrated food pop-ups is coming to Los Angeles on Monday, January 27. The Honey Butter Fried Chicken crew, with their tens of thousands of Instagram followers, will be hunkering down at Pizzana in Brentwood for a one-day collection of fried chicken sandwiches, including their O.G. with chicken strips and candied jalapeño mayo; a honey butter option; and a chicken parm sandwich collab with Pizzana chef/owner Daniele Uditi. The sandwiches will be available from lunch through dinner on that Monday, but for one day only.
