Sure, you probably already have dessert plans for Saturday, Chicago, but what about dinner?

One of the city's most anticipated restaurant openings this year and part of a burgeoning "fried chicken wave," Honey Butter Fried Chicken is set to officially open the doors of its Avondale restaurant at 5 p.m. on Saturday, per a Facebook posting.

The 3361 N. Elston Ave. restaurant, helmed by Josh Kulp and Christine Cikowski of Sunday Dinner Club fame, will serve -- of course -- honey butter-topped fried chicken along with seasonal biscuits, vegetable sides and desserts made using local, sustainable market ingredients.

Eater Chicago notes the opening menu will include an heirloom tomato and toasted corn dish, a pimento mac and cheese and Chinese broccoli and goat cheese dish.

According to Chicagoist, diners will be washing all that deliciousness down with beers including local brews from Half Acre, Revolution and others plus a cocktail menu featuring a Coriander Sangrita served with a can of Tecate.

After Saturday, the restaurant will continue to be open from 5-10 p.m. Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Sundays and 5-11 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, Time Out Chicago reports. It will be closed Tuesdays and lunch service -- which will include the incredible-looking sandwiches below -- will follow in a few weeks.

Yes, please and thank you!
