a southern style fried chicken joint in the heart of downtown los angeles cooking with soul

“As a coupla’ guys coming from Louisiana and North Carolina, this is our love letter to The South, written in flavor.”

We’re Josh & Sammy, owners of Preux & Proper, welcome to our latest project: SCFC. We’d like you to know that we take great pride in crafting our recipes and sourcing sustainably. It’s evident in our heirloom buttermilk marinade, our juicy Georgia free-range birds, and our proprietary “stay crispy” batter. That’s the Southern in us, and so is our devotion to cooking with soul. We pickle, ferment, smoke with hickory, and make all our sauces from family recipes. We don’t use freezers or heat lamps, and most importantly, we fry our chicken to order— because that’s the right way to do it.

 

OUR KITCHEN

Our kitchen embodies a collection of great American stories told though regional specialties. From zesty dill pickles to fragrant Jamaican jerk, we draw our inspiration from the cultures and foodways that continue to influence and inspire our favorite Southern scratch cooking.
