Any nice places for friend chicken? Possibly Korean friend chicken?
Obviously doesn't have to be that nice. I was looking at Hill Country Chicken and it sounded good but I was looking for something a little nicer than self service. I want somewhere for about 10 of us for a birthday dinner. Thanks!

If you can get a reservation, your best bet is Momofuku Noodle Bar. They serve two different styles of fried chicken (traditional and Korean) to your table. Service is for 6 - 10 people. Reservations are available at 10:00 a.m. daily on the Momofuku website. I thought both styles were incredibly moist and delicious.

I liked Momofuku and thought it was a decent deal. Another option would be to call and make a reservation at Mad for Chicken. It's not Momofuku, but it has good Korean fried chicken, beer and soju to drink and has space for a party of 10. I've gone with my friends a number of times and have always enjoyed it.
kathryn, how would you compare Blue Ribbon Bakery's fried chicken ($25.50) and The Redhead's fried chicken ($18)? Which do you prefer?
Does the fried chicken at Blue Ribbon Bakery and Blue Ribbon Brasserie taste the pretty much the same? Both restaurants serve their fried chicken with mashed potatoes and collard greens, but the fried chicken with mash and collards costs $25.50 at BR Brasserie, and $25.95 at BR Bakery, if the online menus are up-to-date and correct.
I enjoyed the upscale/contemporary take on organic fried chicken ($23) at Perry Street last summer, but haven't had a chance to try any other versions lately. It's still listed as an entree on their current online menu.

mono+mono in the east village has nice decor, a DJ who plays jazz on vinyl, and the same bubble beer dispenser as the former Mad For Chicken (now also called mono+mono) in midtown. Much better ambiance than any of the other KTown chicken places. Make sure you order soju, too. When making reservations for a large group, there is a $$$ minimum but it shouldn't be hard to meet because the chicken and alcohol can add up quickly.
