      tried it early on, it was over cooked & dry.
      the dr tucker cocktail was excellet

    2. Best fried chicken I've ever had was at Bubby's in Tribeca...but hey, they have a location in DUMBO! The chicken is brined for 24 hours. Don't get the Chicken Fried Chicken...get the Buttermilk Soaked Fried Half Chicken. It's worth it!

        Oh, and lest I forget...the Michigan Sour Cherry Pie is the best tasting pie I've ever had. I know of no other place that sells sour cherry pie.

      2. Henry's End has outstanding Fried Chicken.

          Went and had it (for the millionth time) two nights ago (Friday). Believe is excellent.

        2. Don't forget to try some of the Korean fried chicken shops. Search previous topics for discussions.

          1. Try Amy Ruths in Harlem (soul food) best fried chicken & waffles going

              A branch of Amy Ruth's is opening in the old Gage & Tollner space downtown on Valentine's day.

              I haven't had any recent experiences, but I remember Blue Ribbon makes great fried chicken and it being pricey.
