My sister and I were talking about childhood memories and we both remember when we were kids we use to go to a restaurant in Reading and we can't remember it's name or where it was located. If I give you some details, do you think you could remember the name? We remember it as the little chicken restaurant.

I remember when you first walked in, you walked into a kitschy gift store, they sold all kinds of stuff. I remember a lot of chicken and chicken related things as well as any trendy 70's items. It was where I first saw pet rocks and eternity mirrors! LOL! When you were seated in the restaurant, the tables were covered in red and white tablecloths with a candle lamp and they served warm biscuits and honey while you waited for your meal.

Do you have any idea what this restaurant was called?

Thanks in advance!

That would probably be Harrow's, still there, but no longer serves meals, although may do groups. What they are famous for now is their chicken pot pies, which they sell by the thousands and have opened a second store on Mystic Ave. in Medford. They are also available cooked and frozen and can be found in some stores.
Think it was mentioned in the book by Jan and Michael Stern, 500 things you have to eat recently. They do have a website.
Have one or two myself each month, come in various sizes, and no dairy ingredients.
