Avenue C is for chicken.

66 Ave. C, New York, NY, 10009


Known For

The lowdown

This Puerto Rican neighborhood hub’s specialty is abuela-level rotisserie chicken, and the aroma of garlic and roasted poultry at the small restaurant is so powerful that it takes all your might not to just sit down on Avenue C’s sidewalk and eat right there. You can choose from three types of beans with your rice. Fresh-fruit milkshakes and juices are made behind the counter. Finish with a tasty café con leche. And practice your gracias like a good nieto.
