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?

  1. Vitello tonnato, with sweetbreads standing in for veal. I first ate it at Lincoln, but I believe Promenade des Anglais now has a version.

    1. Mile End's haute-ish take on classic Ashkenazi cooking.

      1. 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.

        1. These are all great! Keep 'em coming!

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