Chicken livers: Any great recommendations?

i love the chicken livers at Solea (with bacon, onions, crispy, yummy). I'd love to hear other places with great renditions.

  1. I love, love love the chicken liver salad at Alba Deli on Hancock St. In Quincy--just north of the square. Like a very loose pate. Delicious--buy it by weight or get it in a tasty sandwhich--or both!

    1. The buffalo chicken livers (chicken livers breaded and served like chicken wings, doused in wing sauce) at The Gallows are rich yet balanced and quite addictive. Highly recommended.

      I also really like the chicken liver pâté at La Voile. Very liver-y, rich, unctuous. Reminiscent of liver pâtés in France--not for those not fully bullish on liver.

        I also highly recommend the buffalo chicken livers at The Gallows. Also the chicken liver crostini at Trattoria Toscana was fantastic.

      2. The East Coast Grill does a chipotle-glazed chicken liver app that is a favorite of mine. The livers are deep-fried and have a bit of heat. They are served with crispy, salty, very thin onion rings, sweet and sour greens with bacon, and an orange marmalade. I haven't been able to go to the ECG for too long, so the app may have changed a little.

        1. Davios has a good chicken liver appetizer.

              3rd Davio's. And the portion is huge (crispy fried).

          1. I like the chicken liver appetizer at El Sarape in Braintree. They arecooked up with tomatoes and onions. Perfect with a margarita and some tortilla chips.

              I was going to say the same about El Sarape. I get that liver appetizer every time I go. It's delicious.

                I would like to "third" this recommendation. Higaditos Mexicanos at El Serape would have to be among the best chicken livers in the Greater Boston are. They have a bit of grilled crust on the outside but are still pink (may we say this without the germ police swooping in?) at the center. Try them!!
