10 Best Roasted Chickens in NYC

Roasted Chicken. It’s not something my eyes usually flock to on a restaurant menu because chicken is chicken- you can get it anywhere and you probably toss it in your chopped salad for lunch daily. However, there are several restaurants in the city that crank out and produce some of the juiciest roasted chickens that you’ve ever had. To note none of those included are simply grilled, but more likely smothered with seasonings, spices and chicken broth to make them tender and tasty as hell. Some of the best plain, roasted chickens you can get in NYC include:



  1. Barbuto (West Village) – $17 chicken is their main attraction such a good price
  2. Market Table (West Village) – Comes on top of spring pea risotto
  3. The Commons (Chelsea)- they just started serving dinner service
  4. Lil’ Frankies (East Village) -plus it comes with a side of mashed potatoes stuffed with butter (1st pic)
  5. Cookshop (Chelsea)- this one comes on a salad during brunch (2nd pic)
  6. Commerce (West Village) – with truffled potato puree
  7. Gwynnett St. (Williamsburg)
  8. Jack’s Wife Freda (NoLita)
  9. The Standard Grill (Meatpacking)
  10. Jeffrey’s Grocery (West Village) – seasonal; right now they have fried chicken
