This Paris transplant, courtesy of three-Michelin-starred Antoine Westermann, comes with a subtitle: “The Bistro of Beautiful Birds.” The chickens in question include Plymouth Barred Rock, Cornish hens, and a fabulous Brune Landaise, cooked in more ways than you ever imagined. There is baeckeoffe, there are giblets, and there’s an entire section dedicated to eggs.
