Chicken liver dishes?

who's got the best? appetizers, mains, you name it. prefer gramercy/chelsea/village ideally...but i'll follow the lure of the liver if needed :)

  1. For more upscale/haute: the Monday Room has a lovely chicken liver crème caramel with cabernet roasted grapes and crispy parma. Freemans has a Chicken Liver Crostini. Spotted Pig has chicken liver toast.

      I'll second the chicken liver toast at Spotted Pig. Really delicious and luscious.

        I also vote for the chicken liver at Spotted Pig. Yum. And on the topic of liver, they also had an amazing calves liver special there once (as a main). Wow, do they know liver.

        i've had freeman's, which is ace....and when i am feeling a little more flush, i'll have to try the monday room. maybe january 21 :)

      3. On top of the dishes mentioned, may I suggest:
        - The chicken liver mousse with cracklings at Back Forty
        - the chicken liver pate (with other meat) and the salad with chicken liver, poached egg, and lardon at Bar Boulud
        - Chicken liver parfait at Maze of The London Hotel by Gordon Ramsay
        - Chicken Liver Mousse with truffle and pickled vegetable at EMP

        1. I am going to be in NYC next weekend and i'm a huge chicken liver fan (I was born and raised in the south, raised on fried chicken livers) so I am going to keep an eye on this thread. :)

          1. Had the chicken liver crostini at Convivio tonight--quite tasty.

              I will second the chicken liver crostini at Convivio, but that said, this will be an expensive meal. Check out Bar Pitti (On 6th Ave at Bleecker), they make a nice chicken liver crostini appetizer and have great, reasonable Italian food to accompany.

            2. I had a great dish at Upstairs at Bouley a couple of years ago. I'm not sure if it's still on the menu.
