Dirty Bird To Go Restaurant Review

: Allison Vines-Rushing (late of Jack’s Luxury Oyster Bar) is manning the stoves---we mean deep-fat fryer---at this take-away chicken counter on bustling West 14th Street. They don’t just fry the chicken---they brine, buttermilk and then fry it. And, just for good measure, they fry it again. Slow-roasted bird is also available, but it pales in comparison to the fried stuff, which, as you could guess, is super-crispy on the outside and still tender and moist on the inside. Sides include rather ordinary roasted potatoes, dirty rice and shallot cornbread. On your way out, don’t forget to pick up a bag of fresh-baked bad-ass cookies.
