Best fried chicken?

I'm coming into Manhattan and have a jones for some fried chicken. Does anyone have any reccomendations for good fried chicken in Manhattan. I don't feel like heading into Brooklyn for Bojangle's unless I have to.

    1. you might want to head to Brooklyn anyway...word on the street is that Egg in Williamsburg serves some of the best fried chicken in the city.

      135A N 5th St, Brooklyn, NY 11211

      1. Although I have never been there, I've heard good things about it.

        1. bon chon. not southern fried but pretty damned yummy

          1. I personally like Piece of Chicken which is on 45th between 8th and 9th. It's take out only, but it's really good. Super fresh and usually a line out the door. Also very inexpensive (a piece is a $1.) I think they add a touch of ginger to the batter. Sounds weird, but it really is good - gives a bit of zing. They have great collards there too.

            For sit down, I like Blue Ribbon Bakery (Downing St in Village) or Blue Ribbon (in Soho.)

            Here's a pretty good thread:

            Good eating...
