Roasted Chicken

I'm looking for the best restaurant roasted chicken in Manhattan. Straight up, maximum comfort food factor, but in a 'high-end' environment. Once upon a time Odeon was pretty unbeatable, but that was a very long time ago. Any thoughts welcome.

  1. Spigolo (Italian) 81/2nd has brick roasted chicken-very good usually served w polenta-YUMMY!!!!!!!!!! It's a smallish half chicken but perfect for even a big appetite.

      1. I recently had seriously delicious roasted chicken at Apiary. Not too surprising since Scott Bryan, formerly at Veritas, is now in charge of Apiary's kitchen. I wouldn't describe the restaurant as "high-end," but service was excellent, and the decor is very attractive.

        1. Supper (2nd St. between A and B) has very good Pollo Arrosto. It's not high-end, though.

          1. The chicken at Gramercy Tavern is amazing. I usually do not like white meat but there is is moist and tender. I don't know how they do it. It is on the Tavern menu, but not sure if you can get it in the main dining room.
