    Chef Sarah is a fried chicken visionary. The Winner Winner Chicken Dinner, Shrimp & Grits, and the Crunchy Potato Salad are the must haves IMHO. ps. I want to eat here again like right now.

    Finally, a fried chicken restaurant in NYC that also specializes in Champagne. Check out the below-street-level crispy birds and bubbly hideaway that opens up into a massive back yard. Read more

    This is a newly opened restaurant dedicated wholly to crisp fried chicken and champagne. Sarah Simmons, the chef behind Soho culinary saloon City Grit, pairs the two at this Lower East Side project. Read more

    Winner Winner Chicken Dinner is a solid fried chicken meal for 4 people, plenty of food. Come late in the evening and enjoy samples of the nearly finished bottles as they clear them out for the night.

    Not up for the champagne and whole chicken? Try the Runner Up - Half Chicken, 3 sides, and a bread basket. The Potatoes and Brussel Sprouts are a must. Great for birthdays!

    Whole chicken gets you a basket of bread/biscuits & 3 sides (Potato salad, coleslaw, vidalia sides all A+). BANANA PUDDING, a must. Pickled shrimp changes the gazpacho game. Did I mention the patio?

    Fried chicken for sure, every part, even the white meat was moist. The crispy potatoes and Brussels sprouts are excellent sides to go with it.

    Excellent southern cooking from Chef Sarah Simmons. Get the sriracha deviled eggs, shrimp & grits, fried chicken, crispy potato salad, and pineapple casserole.

    The best fried chicken I've ever had. The potato salad is phenomenal, uniquely made with crispy potatoes. I've never had anything so flavorful before

    Fried chicken of course!! The tomato pie is fantastic and you should definitely chat with your server about the champagne, they're all very knowledgable

    An all-bets-are-off date spot from the woman behind City Grit. And what you’re going to find, in no particular order, is a lot of Southern delicacy. Also, a pretty delightful patio.

    Solid fried chicken at a reasonable price. Yes, the potato salad is bomb and more like a home fry salad than the creamy stuff you'd expect

    The fried chicken is a must. The shrimp and grits were also very flavorful. I don't know if their dessert is a set menu, but if it is, get the banana pudding.

    Love, love, love the crawfish étouffée and the brown butter with the bread basket. Sarah is super friendly too so make sure to sit on the porch and say hi!

    The half chicken was perfect for two, along with a few sides of course. Get the flight of champagne and compare; you really CAN taste the difference!

    The fried chicken is super fresh; they pull it through batter and it goes straight in a cast iron skillet full of canola oil. Delicious.

    If you come at 11am you will miss the typical brunch crowd. Fried chicken and biscuit is pretty legit though the salad is a bit sour for most people

    You seriously can't go wrong with anything on the menu. Sarah's cooking is out of this world! Though I have a soft spot southern cooking. 😉

    If it's just two of you, ask about the Runner Up chicken dinner! The crispy potato salad and the Vidalia onion soufflé are great sides

    Had the bird without the bubbles, but it was just as enjoyable. Split a bucket of chicken with a group and throw in any of the starters.

    Get the Runner Up. It's not on the menu but includes the biscuit basket, 3 sides and a bucket of 🐥. You cannot argue with those numbers.

    There's a 1/2 chicken special not on the menu where you can get 3 sides and a breadbasket. Ask about it! :)
