Like all fashions, trends in restaurant cuisine have a life cycle. But how does a must-try dish become the played-out aftertaste of boredom? Whither the sundried tomato, the powdered mayonnaise, the deconstructed shortcake? When David Katz started offering fried chicken at the now-shuttered Mémé, it was half a joke, to see how the down-home special that included a Miller Lite would fly in Rittenhouse, and half an homage to his childhood in Cape May, where fried chicken was a staple food.

Ronni Lundy got a bake set for her fifth birthday and claims to have been cooking ever since. At the very least, she became fascinated with the country food of her native South. Lundy grew up in Louisville, Ky., but the foods she enjoyed were the simple dishes of mountain folk. Convenience foods meant chicken frying slowly in a cast-iron skillet. Food memories and recipes are fondly captured in Lundy's Shuck Beans, Stack Cakes and Honest Fried Chicken (Atlantic Monthly, $24.95)

AT FEDERAL Donuts on 2nd and Manton, they start selling chicken at 11:45 a.m., after the morning hordes have wiped them out of hot doughnuts. A bearded dude stands at the door and hands you a yellow Post-it note with a handwritten number on it. If you order a half chicken, he rips the sticky note in half. When I arrived at 11:51 on Monday morning, I was given a ripped Post-it with the number 21 scrawled in orange marker. "We start giving away numbers at 11:45, and we're usually out by 12:30," I overheard food writer and Federal Donuts partner Felicia D'Ambrosio tell some customers at the counter.

CORRECTION: Everything old is new again, as they say. Like fried chicken. It's hot and re-happening. Hey, if Mad Men can be cool again - skinny ties and '60s martinis, the uptown picture of retro - why not a shout-out for its country-picnic cousin? Why not, indeed? I chewed over this question. All over town. The results were published in this space more than a month ago. I did not try every establishment's chicken. But I put a pretty big bite in what was out there - crunchy thighs slicked with spiced honey at Resurrection Ale House, served with great German potato salad.

There are at least two "truths" about fried chicken. One: The pan-fried kind tastes better than the deep-fried kind. Two: The best cooking vessel is a black cast-iron skillet. And it is almost always true that if it's restaurant fried chicken, it's the deep-fried kind, probably cooked in an electric fryer. Sometimes it is even partially cooked, by steaming or braising, before it is thickly battered and dropped into bubbling oil. Restaurants' choosing deep frying may be a matter of time.

As part of her official visit to Washington, D.C., Queen Elizabeth II dropped in at the home of Alice Frazier, who invited her to stay for a lunch of Southern fried chicken and potato salad. Her majesty declined. Lunch with Mrs. Frazier wasn't the purpose of the visit. It was what we call a photo opportunity: The Queen of England is shown visiting an elderly black lady who lives in a very neat, government-subsidized house. That helps give the impression that there's more to her trip than putting on gowns and dining with other swells at the White House.

A piece in Bon Appétit magazine this month purports to list "The Top 10 Best Places for Fried Chicken," which wouldn't be of much note except that Resurrection Ale House, a local kid, made the cut. Resurrection is a tidy corner pub across from the condos at the old Naval Home on Grays Ferry Avenue, deeply into the craft beer scene, a proclivity that had won it a different notoriety a few months ago; state police raided it for selling a few...

Helen Dickerson is famous for her fried chicken. And for her crabcakes. And then there's the spoonbread and, on Sundays, the kidney stew. Not to mention the breakfast biscuits and the dinner rolls. We're not talking the recognition of friends and neighbors here, though she certainly has that. This is real limelight, complete with appearances on national television, letters of praise from the Bush White House, and enough visitors tramping through her kitchen to prompt the feisty 81-year-old cook to propose charging admission.

WHAT, NO watermelon? Excuse the sarcasm, but I'm still looking side-eyed at a laughable attempt by a restaurant inside the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa to celebrate the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday by serving fried chicken. Wait, there's more: The Metropolitan restaurant also dished up collard greens and macaroni and cheese in honor of the slain civil-rights leader. Advertised as the "Martin Luther King Jr. Special," the $24 meal consisted of fried chicken, macaroni and cheese, sweet potato casserole, collard greens and homemade pecan pie. Joe Lupo, senior vice president of the Borgata, told me that the restaurant chose menu items that were among King's favorite foods as a way to honor him and that the menu was put together by the restaurant's African-American general manager.

Fuquan is an affectionate, talkative 8-year-old who takes pleasure in helping others, which may be one of the reasons he wants to be a police officer when he grows up. He wants "to help catch the bad guys," he says. Until then, he keeps busy with such pastimes as dancing, listening to music, and playing basketball and video games. He also enjoys watching movies, especially the animated film Cars . His favorite foods: fried chicken, macaroni and cheese, and pizza. Fuquan gets along well with adults and other children.

Like every great home cook, Josephine Samuel has one legendary signature dish. "My mother showed me how to do fried chicken and how you make it taste real good," said Samuel, a Mantua resident. But, she added wistfully, "You can't eat fried chicken every night. " So, she enrolled in "Local Culinary Traditions," a new, free course offering from Drexel University's Center for Hospitality and Sports Management that invites West Philadelphia residents and any Drexel students to collaborate in documenting beloved family recipes and experimenting with making them healthier.

IS THERE A RIFT in the Giants' locker room? Eagles fans can only hope. According to a report, Giants defensive end Justin Tuck ordered his teammates to get behind head coach Tom Coughlin, or else. "If anyone turns on our coach, I would be the first one to punch him in the mouth," Tuck told the New York Daily News. "And put that in print. It better not happen, I know that. " Tuck took offense at wide receiver Victor Cruz' questioning of Coughlin's playcalling during Sunday's 31-7 loss to the Chiefs that dropped the Giants to 0-4. Cruz thought the coach should have gone for a first down on fourth-and-1 at the Giants' 30 late in the third quarter.

GULLANE, Scotland - The tournament doesn't start until Thursday yet the most entertaining shot at the British Open may already have been hit. It belonged to short-game wizard Phil Mickelson, who won the Scottish Open on Sunday and a day later arrived at the 17th green during a practice round to find his ball nestled in light rough halfway up a small knob alongside the putting surface. Lefty grabbed a wedge and with his back to the flag, feathered a shot that arched softly and landed behind him and rolled to within a few feet of the pin. "I haven't hit it in so long, I just looked at it and thought I'd give it a try. I didn't know anybody was filming," Mickelson said.

"I want to send an unreserved apology. I did not want to offend anyone," Garcia said. "My answer was totally stupid and out of place. " Garcia was at a European Tour awards dinner Tuesday night when he was jokingly asked if he would have Woods over for dinner during the U.S. Open.

Here is an excerpt from Craig LaBan's online chat of April 9, 2013: Craig LaBan: Lots of good things to discuss. Like these alfajores from the Argentine-influenced cafe called Gavin's, on Pine Street right next to the Schuylkill River park . . . spending a lot of time in the park lately, 'cause my son is doing Little League. I hadn't planned on these gorgeous alfajores - cookie sandwiches rolled in coconut and stuffed with dulce de leche. One of my favorite treats in town.
