Roast Chicken - LA Dish of the Month (Dec 2012)

The dish of the month for Los Angeles for Dec 2012 is roast chicken. Here's a link to the voting thread:

The goal is to collectively try as many versions of roast chicken as possible during the month of December! So let's start exploring and eating—report back with reviews and photos.

All types of roast chicken are fair game, and there are many to try!! Looking forward to seeing what people find, and would like to reiterate that the point of this project is to go out and actually eat the dish *this* month. Reports on past experiences are great, but the idea is to go out and try roast chicken now!

      I hear ya...that roast chicken run-down is epic:

      When I ponder the question, I realize that most of my primo roast chicken experiences have been out of town (Zuni Cafe - SF and Craigie on Main - Boston), and most of the roast chicken I eat at home I cook myself. Looking forward to the development of this thread for some more inspiration.

    2. I love A-Frame's Crackling Beer Can Chicken. Crispy, cracklin skin, tender & juicy on the inside. Oh good.

        I second that. I would go there and just eat that. Oh wait, I do go there and just eat that. :)

        I know this is slightly off topic, but have you had their fried chicken? How does it compare?

        1. Rustic Canyon and Catch are still the best, to me.

          1. Exilekiss is missed...

            Don't usually order roast chicken when dining out - find it boring and dry for the most part. But the 2 that I like are from A-Frame (as mentioned above) and Pollo a la Brasa. Looking forward to what this thread can provide :)

            1. Has anyone had the roast chicken at Bouchon? I haven't. but they feature it for their Sunday Night dinner. Love Fired Chicken night on Mondays!
