Who has better fried chicken -- Redhead or Egg?

Guilty Glutton Dec 13, 2008 11:58 AM

My sister is coming to New York, and she loves fried chicken. Who has better fried chicken? Egg in Williamsburg or the Redhead in the East Village? They both look great, and have been well-reviewed in the Times, but she only has enough time to try one.

    I never head Redhead but had Egg numerous times. Its amazingly crispy and moist. Better yet its BYOB and I think $15 bucks. One order can feed two easily. If you really want your own portion still split one and order a second when close to being finsihed with the first that way the next one is hot. Everything at Egg rocks...
