Finally going to Hammersley's this weekend after all these years. Any recommendations on what to get? I know they are famous for the roast chicken, but do I really want to get roast chicken in such a good restaurant with so many other interesting dishes?
Thanks for your input.
Hamersley's chicken is justly famous. If you can't bring yourself to, get someone else to order it and have a bite, or a leg. I think the salads and vegetarian dishes are extraordinary. The garlic/mushroom sandwich is simple and amazing. The halibut/clam roast. Anything that looks traditional bistro French will be better than it sounds: the chicken, charcuterie, confit duck. The patio is great, when it's going, too.
Second heathermb and mc slim...Yes. You want that chicken. Calling it a "roast chicken" really doesn't do it justice. It's amazing --the most flavorful and delicious chicken you'll ever have. Really. I've been to Hamersley's a few times and I almost always get the chicken (maybe once i didn't, but regretted it..) Enjoy!

We always try to have first timers try the chicken. It is a great example of what a perfect roast chicken should be.
I find the duck confit hard to resist. My husband will often order the steak - the last time it was smoked and full of wonderful flavor.
Here is our review from last summer with photos to make you drool a bit.
I agree with the recommendation for the roast chicken. I'm sorry to the person who had a dry one but I think I eat that chicken at least once a month and it's never, ever been dry. It's really a very delicious dish and quite large so good for sharing. The duck confit is also always a good bet as is whatever pate' they are doing at the moment. Have a fabulous meal!
