Race season and the onset of summer means one thing to Savvy— fried chicken. While she can fry up a mean mess herself and loves a certain local decorator’s infamous trick to making Royal Farms finest taste like homemade (pop it in the oven and generously sprinkle with coarse black pepper), she recently found fried chicken heaven. Big Boyz Soul Food (5402 Harford Road, 410-254-7685) delivers real Southern-style chicken with the kind of juiciness and flavor that comes only out of cast-iron pans handed down over generations. Everything at Big Boyz, including collard greens, mashed potatoes and mac-and-cheese, is made fresh daily and it’s all homestyle. Savvy will be serving it all summer, bikini be damned!
