The Fly Restaurant Review

:
About the restaurant & décor: At The Fly in Bed-Stuy, the team behind Hart’s and Cervo’s keeps it simple, with a menu focused on rotisserie chicken paired with natural wines. This is their largest restaurant yet, with a warmly lit 22-seat wraparound bar, spacious booths in front, and a dining room in back. Wine bottles do double duty as libations and decoration against the white-tiled walls.

Likes: Chicken, potatoes, cocktails.
Dislikes: Gets very busy – can be hard to snag a spot.

Food & Drinks: It’s all about chicken, chicken, chicken at The Fly. It’s served by the half or whole, and it lives up to its place as the star of the show with crispy skin yielding to garlicy, tender meat and rich with drippings. Chicken also comes in sandwich form, piled high on a chewy bun with mayo and bright pickled vegetables. Don’t neglect an order of roasted potatoes in chicken jus (what else?) and long cooked greens, prepared simply with olive oil and a squeeze of lemon. There’s no dessert, so savor an extra glass of wine. The list features bubbly, white, orange, pink and red low-intervention wines from small producers around the world. Cocktails, like a white Negroni, are well-crafted, and there’s also Bud on draft and sherry on tap.
