Thomas Keller's Ad Hoc Fried Chicken Kit might be the most pimped kitchen product since the ShamWow, but we're guessing nobody at Gussie's comes close to caring. If Gussie's salty, pumpkin-pie-spice-y sweet potato waffles aren't exactly the anti-Keller, the shiny fried chicken wings certainly are. The flour coating turns frizzled in the hot oil, on joints that skew largely skin and bone, designed for unselfconscious gnawing. Fillmore-style.
