THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Chick Rotisserie & Wine Bar Restaurant Review: The folks who own Chick Rotisserie & Wine Bar also own The Grind, a gourmet coal-fired burger joint and bar next door. Their M.O. is to take ordinary food (hamburger and chicken, for example) and turn it into classy comfort food by making sure the meat is all natural, and employing dedicated cooking techniques like spinning rotisseries in full view of diners. It’s a successful strategy, and Chick takes things a bit further by adding an array of beef, pork and seafood dishes, plus innovative sides. You’ll appreciate the free-range chicken, organic and succulent from mesquite brine, or glazed in black truffle butter and rosemary. Order a quarter, half or whole bird, then add on sides like char-grilled corn kernels tumbling with sweet cream and mint, or whipped potatoes topped with a choice of garnishes like roasted jalapeño cheese. The dishes can get busy flavor-wise, since each meat comes with a choice of sauce --- teriyaki, garlic cream, Mandarin orange chutney, jerk, etc. But the bartenders keep up with the big flavors amid the chic farmhouse setting strewn with chandeliers. Try the “Oh Snap,” a bright, sweet mix of Bulleit Rye bourbon, Snap gingersnap liqueur, Arizona honey, cranberry and orange juices and bitters.
