The Eagle has landed

Billing itself as a “food and beer hall,” The Eagle has opened on Woodward Avenue in Detroit. The restaurant, which is part of the Thunderdome Restaurant Group based in Cincinnati, is one of seven locations throughout the country and the first location in metro Detroit.  The chicken-centric menu features whole, half and quarter-sized servings of all natural, free range, brined-in-house fried chicken. Southern-style accompaniments include collards stewed with ham hocks and bacon; spoonbread with maple butter; sweet potato crock with mini marshmallows; and succotash with corn, edamame, green beans, bacon and bell pepper. There’s also an array of salads and specialty sandwiches to choose from. Southern-themed cocktails complement the menu with concoctions such as a peach margarita with tequila blanco, peach liqueur, peach & citrus sour, jalapeno, pacific; a maple old fashion with four roses single barrel, Gran Marnier, maple and pepper ginger bitters; and an apricot martini with vodka, gin, lillet blanc and apricot agave. The Travel Channel recognized The Eagle as one of the “10 most hype-worthy” fried chicken restaurants in the country, and shared that “This midwest restaurant mini-chain specializes in delicious comfort food and uses only cage-free, free-roaming chickens from local farms. Choose from a whole, half, or quarter chicken that’s brined, double-dredged in seasoning, then fried. You’ll be wowed by the spicy hot honey that sits alongside the chicken, as well as a la carte sides like collard greens, succotash, and homemade biscuits with blackberry jam and honey butter.”  3461 Woodward Avenue, Detroit
