I'm looking for the best fried chicken restaurant in Manhattan. I would go to other boroughs, but it must be train accessible. Thanks

    My favorite is at Peels, on the Bowery. So juicy, piping hot, and served with herbed honey.

      I don't know about "best" but Blue Smoke and Amy Ruth's both have excellent friend chicken.

          Thanks for the info so far. Anybody know if Hill country Kitchen is any good?

            I found Hill Country's fried chicken disappointing.

            The fried chicken at The Dutch is fabulous, as are the fries and biscuits that come with it. On the menu at lunch, brunch, and late night (after midnight).

              Another vote for Blue Smoke, something I rarely eat, but always order when I go there, worth the calories!

            Bon Chon when it was still served at that bar on the 2nd Fl. of 5th & 32nd. I haven't tried it since they moved across the street, but hopefully it's still good.

            Charles Southern Kitchen when it's fresh and Charles is doing the cooking.

                I agree w/ many on the list - Blue Ribbon, Momofuku Noodle, Redhead, they are all very good and I don't even really like fried chicken.

                I was going to say Bon Chon for take out, especially if you work in Mid Town! If you like spicy their spicy chicken is great!
