Best Chicken Parmesean in NYC?

I don't mean the sandwich, I mean the dinner itself. I can't stop thinking about it today and I must, must have it. Anyone have any good spots where they have had this dish?

      Lamarca on 22nd and 3rd

      Fresh Basil in Midtown

      are both good

    2. Patsy's (not the pizzeria) or the Palm YuM!

      1. Edgie, there is only ONE place in Manhattan for a great whomping portion of chicken parm, garlicky, cheesy and tomatoey without being at all sloppy - and that is Carmine's. either location (though the UWS is more family and the take-out nextdoor superb). Try it and you will agree.

          I completely (respectfully) disagree, everytime i get Carmine's (UWS location) chicken parm it's always tough and leathery with no redeeming qualities.

        2. Elio's. Outstanding chicken parm. 2nd Ave btw 84th and 85th.

              I'm a diehard chicken parm say what you want about the place but the best chicken parm in NYC is aa Il Mulino ...Carmines, Lol, that's a good one...Patsy's on 56th makes a nice one as well...

                this gives me another reason to go back to il mulino.. feels like years since i've been to this old school italian mecca!

          2. Coppola's on Third Avenue (27/28) and W. 79th (Browadway/Columbus)
