In search of new takes on classic dishes in NYC and boroughs.
CHOW's researching a new video series about chefs/cooks who are doing interesting spins on classic dishes. As an example, the fried-chicken craze of late comes to mind, but we can also go crazier. What have you seen out there lately that I should check out?
Vitello tonnato, with sweetbreads standing in for veal. I first ate it at Lincoln, but I believe Promenade des Anglais now has a version.

I liked the cold fried chicken at WD 50.
Nuela's arroz con pato is a great reinvention of paella with duck, foie gras, and a fried egg.

In many ways, this is exactly what Per Se does night in and night out.
