I'm sure Root & Bone makes really great fried chicken but it's not what I got. Seems like almost every food person out there declared Root & Bone to have the BEST fried chicken in NYC. I can't agree on that since the 2 times I have gone, I was underwhelmed. The first time I went, the chicken was way too salty and the most recent time the chicken needed salt. My friend agreed that the chicken was just okay.
I really want to like this place but the chicken isn't consistent. Though, I did enjoy their sides and appetizers. Too bad they don't have the corn spoon bread anymore because that was easily one of my favorite bites of 2014.
$18 (Half chicken)
