The 8 Best Fried Chicken Spots In NYC
BOBWHITE LUNCH AND SUPPER COUNTER: Over on Avenue C, just far enough out of reach from the drunk hordes that roam the East Village, tiny three-year-old Bobwhite Counter serves a tea-brined bird that’s simple, salty, and satisfying. And the full fried chicken supper, with salad and jumbo biscuit, is only $11.50, so you can afford to share a side or two and still get that overflowing bowl of pecan pie bread pudding with fresh whipped cream for dessert. Bonus: owner and chef Keedick Coulter, out of Roanoke, Virginia, is committed to using only humanely-raised animals (the pork sandwich is great here, too) and local, sustainable produce.
Bobwhite Counter is located on Avenue C between East 6th and 7th Streets in the East Village (212-228-2972, bobwhitecounter.com).
