    My favorite is Parm at 248 Mulberry street.

      across the street at Rubirosa is good, too.

        Since when does Rubirosa have chicken francese? Unless the menu has changed recently, they only have roasted or parmigiano.

        I don't see it on Parm's menu either.

        Did you both misread the OP or did I miss something?

          Rubirosa has it as a sandwich on their lunch menu.

            Interesting. I haven't had lunch there in quite some time so hadn't noticed it. Still, I wonder if a sandwich is what the OP had in mind.

              Rubirosa doesn't seem to have it.

                You called them? Did you check the lunch menu?

              Right in the middle under sandwiches, but you can get it on a roll, hero or as a platter. Sometimes I get the baked clams and pour the garlic butter on it when I get it as a sandwich. The one time I had it at Rubirosa it was lacking, seemed to have been poached, and not much butter or lemon flavor.
