Chicken and waffles are the culinary world’s most popular pairing, having surpassed wine and cheese by throwing rowdier parties and never bragging about their Nobel Peace Prize. Host a humble party in your mouth with today’s Groupon: for $13, you get a chicken and waffles meal for two at The Hummingbird in Fairfax (a $27.90 value).
Robust New Orleans–style recipes enrapture appetites at The Hummingbird, which incorporates organic, locally sourced ingredients into its comforting spread of breakfast and lunch fare. By pairing crunchy cornmeal waffles and organic southern-fried chicken with a rich and spicy apple-maple syrup, Hummingbird’s chefs seek to settle the score between breakfast and dinner without resorting to spatula duels at high noon. Though not included with today’s Groupon, diners can bookend southern feasts with one of the eatery's decadent desserts or by plunging fluffy, freshly made beignets into steaming cups of organic, chicory-laced fair-trade coffee.
The Hummingbird's skilled chefs use almost entirely local, farm-fresh ingredients to craft classic New Orleans dishes such as beignets, shrimp creole, and towering muffuletta sandwiches. The only nonlocal items in the kitchen are alligator and sausages culled directly from The Big Easy and a wooden spoon whittled from a North Pole spruce tree. In addition to slinging lunch and dinner dishes, The Hummingbird serves Cajun-inspired breakfast fare, including plates of chicken and waffles and cups of traditional chicory coffee. The casual café slakes sweet cravings with milkshakes and pies.
