Right now the King of the Chicken Sandwich in DTLA is Howlin’ Rays, but if you want one of Chef Johnny’s creations you have to wait in line, sometimes up to 3 hours.  I don’t have time for that.  If you are at an event inside Staples Center, you can get Chef Ludo Lefebvre’s chicken sandwich at Ludo Bird.  It is amazing, but again you have to be INSIDE Staples Center to get one.  Well, then we suggest you head over to Birdie’s.  Chef Jason Harley serves up a chicken sandwich at rivals Howlin’ Rays and Ludo Birds.  But wait… there’s a new chicken sandwich restaurant in DTLA.
