2024 Best Fried Chicken

Hemlock Grill

Eating well with a view of a sunny fairway usually requires a tony country club membership. But even non-golfers are welcome at the unassuming 19th hole at Brookline’s proletarian Putterham public links. Here, chef Alex Sáenz plates Boston’s crunchiest, juiciest fried chicken, with bolder duffers opting for his searing, vivid-red “Nashville Hot” style.
