CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

No word yet from the Symon camp, they told us it was too early to do a story, despite Michael's Twitter tease.

So we asked others on the Cleveland food scene to weigh in, including Cleveland Scene Magazine Food Writer Jason Beudert

"Michael Symon, Northeast Ohio, bacon, fried chicken, it all rhymes like a beautiful lullaby!" Beudert said. 

Michael Symon tweeted about a new restaurant with "insane" fried chicken, sticky buns, pickles, and growlers, and it created a social media storm. 

"Exciting news he's bringing fried chicken joint here," says Beudert.  

Symon sent out multiple Facebook and Twitter updates about the new place, but no word on its name, exact location, or opening day. 

"Fried chicken in Cleveland? My mom's house," said lifelong Clevelander, JJ Grabowski. 

Grabowski was sitting just a few feet away from some of the best fried chicken in town at Southside in Tremont. Down the street is one of Symon's popular joints, Lolita

He is so popular, the whole street is named after the celebrity chef. 

"I love it. Everything he's always done is successful, it always brings business to any neighborhood that gets to be lucky enough to be part of what he does," said Southside manager Jill Petrak. 

Symon's Twitter tease also called it a top secret project. To visit Symon's twitter page, click HERE
