Best Food For World Peace 2002 - Scene Magazine
There really is nothing like good food to bring people together, and Phil "the Fire" Davis's "comfort food for the soul" proves the point. Word of his famous L.A.-style chicken and waffles (a breathtakingly sweet and savory combination of crunchy fried chicken and tender waffle, doused, as you will, with both hot sauce and maple syrup) has traveled fast. Today, his homey restaurant is almost constantly crammed with a well-integrated crowd of happy chowhounds. World peace through sweet-potato pie? It could happen, and Phil could be just the man to cook it up.
If you’ve never eaten Chicken & Waffles together (on the same plate), then it’s hard to imagine that people would stand in line and pay money to be served Chicken & Waffles. In 1978, as a freshman at Stanford University I held that same belief and scoffed at the notion of combining Chicken & Waffles on the same fork, until my roommate convinced me to try Roscoe’s Chicken & Waffles near his hometown of Pasadena, California. After one bite, I quickly became among the converted. It was also at Stanford that the nickname Phil the Fire (thank you Peabo Bryson—Feel the Fire) came into being.
I grew up in Cleveland, Ohio, in a household of 9 people and watched my Mom and Dad, Alberta and Sherman, prepare great food in our kitchen. Sunday brunches were always something special. My Mom was known for her Fried Chicken and Peach Cobbler, while my Dad was known for his Potato Salad. After learning at the foot of the masters, I began to play around in the kitchen and, wouldn’t you know it, developed my own reputation for Banana Pudding, Sweet Potato Pecan Pie, and my Mom’s Double Butter Peach Cobbler.
For the past 20+ years, I have been “hooked on “Chicken & Waffles. In 1995, I held my first Chicken and Waffles Brunch on Martha’s Vineyard, and maybe 10 people showed up. In 1997, I wrote the original business plan for Phil the Fire and for the next four years held Chicken & Waffles parties and brunches from Cleveland back to Martha’s Vineyard (at the last one over 100 people came from all over the island). In 2001, I opened an all-you-can-eat Sunday Brunch featuring Chicken & Waffles at the Civic in Cleveland Heights. Until John Long, the Plain Dealer’s food critic, reviewed us on July 4, 2001 hardly anyone came. After his favorable review, the rest, as they say, is history. On January 29, 2002 Phil the Fire near Shaker Square opened. Now, I have the opportunity to pass on my love of cooking to my beautiful daughter Machiah Imani and to share my passion for good food and good eating with you. Most recently, my newest location just opened in the summer of 2011 at Orange Place in Beachwood.
