    Chef Meg Grace brings traditional fried chicken together with modern fine dining in this NYC gastropub. Try a specialty side: baked beans and jalapeno biscuits, kale salad, or golden-brown cornbread.

    The Redhead Buttermilk Fried Chicken is remarkably consistent, despite the seasonal sides. It's never greasy and never too dry—just a nearly perfect plate of fried chicken goodness. Read more

    On Triple D, Guy was blown away by chef Meg Grace's Homemade Pretzels With Beer Cheese. For a comforting main course, try the Buttermilk Fried Chicken or Shrimp and Grits. Read more

    It's Meg's insatiable buttermilk fried chicken, with its buttermilk brine and flaky crust, that keeps customers coming back. The plate comes with a side of sweet cornbread and a market green salad. Read more

    Got here after 11 only to find a late night menu. Was shocked when everything I ordered (peanuts, kale salad, chickpea fritters, chorizo flat bread) was out in 5 minutes and was fantastic

    Ignore the salad. Pair a few pieces of the buttermilk fried chicken with a side of tots and the bacon peanut brittle. You won’t be disappointed. Read more

    tater tots are listed as an add-on to the hamburger dish, but you can also order them standalone side dish (even though it's not on the menu). and they're amazing. like little works of potato art.

    Get the beer cheese, shrimp & grits, and fried chicken. Ask for the house made hot sauce. The chicken is better than the hype.

    Get the fried chicken! It's awesome! Ask for hot sauce if you like spicy! Their homemade hot sauce is ah-mazing! Too bad they only open for dinner! No delivery or take-out!

    Come early for dinner of Bacon Peanut Brittles, Grilled Pork Belly, Buttermilk Fried Chicken and finished off with a Dark & Stormy Float. They also have a late night menu.

    Best fried chicken. Get the pretzels with beer and cheese dip too. SO GOOD. I'm sad to leave this tip because I don't want it to get more crowded. Soundtrack is also awesome.

    Some of the best fried chicken in the city and the best I've had in Manhattan. The shrimp and grits also rate a try. The chef is formerly of Commander's Palace in New Orleans so you know it's real.

    We really enjoyed this meal in NYC. I saw this place on DDD a while ago and now I get to eat here. Just as good as I expected maybe even better. Great shrimp and grits and the rabbit raviolis fabulous

    The fried chicken is awesome! Super crunchy outside, even the breast is incredibly moist inside, and flavorful.

    You might not want to order dessert -- because delicious homemade cookies come out at the end of the meal on the house. Cookie varieties change often, but our fave by far is the chocolate.

    Come for the Parker House rolls, stay for the fried chicken. Honestly. The Cavatelli had too much sauce & lacked some type of flavor to cut through. Though the corn did add sweetness, it wasn't enough

    You MUST get the soft pretzels to start. I'm not much of a fried chicken person but it's really good. The shrimp, grits, and sausage is the entree to beat, though.

    The bacon peanut brittle is AMAZING as are the fried chicken and the artichokes. Plus you get a free cookie with the check.

    The fried chicken is the most obvious must-have, but the peanut brittle with bacon is for real one of the best things I've ever tasted. No joke.

    Start off with one of the great house cocktails. The menu changes often so check the website. Some items stick around. Fried chicken is a crowd fav. Read reviews online.

    The shrimp is great. It's available as an appetizer if you still want the chicken as your entree.

    The fried chicken is as amazing as everyone says it is. It is served with a sprightly side salad with nuts, and a cute little cushion of perfect, softly sweet cornbread.

    The fried chicken was pretty average but the butter that comes with complimentary bread is so good!

    Get the Caesar w one-eyed Susan, I tried to make it at home and can't replicate it, the way they do it is perfect! I love the buttermilk fried chicken and beef cheek w truffle vinaigrette. <3 Redhead.

    Doesn't matter what you order- it'll come out delicious and well-balanced. The Aviation will land you on the floor, however 😉.

    Order the braised beef cheek - it will melt in your mouth. For dessert, try the pineapple upside cake. And thank your server for the take-home treats: chocolate chip cookies!

    Went for dinner and the food was wonderful, came back late night for a drink and left because the bartender was too busy dancing behind the bar to make it. Waited 30+ minutes on a SUNDAY
