The lowdown

Having detected a decidedly pro-chicken sentiment in the air, Daniel Humm and chef Danny DiStefano overhauled the menu at their sorta-healthy experimental counter-service spot, which opened in 2017, making it about 50 percent chicken. Now, in addition to the fantastic weekend-special chicken frites, there’s a spicy fried-chicken sandwich, a chicken pot pie, and some awfully tasty fried boneless thighs by the four-piece carton or 12-piece box. You can still get an excellent curry cauliflower salad, though, and also the one with frisée, rösti potatoes, and smoked salmon. Regarding the latter, you can even skip the salmon, and add, yep, fried chicken, instead.
