Manhattan Inn

The great thing about doing research is finding gems like this. Manhattan Inn in Greenpoint is a bar that serves food. They started serving fried chicken dinner on Thursdays and eventually included fried chicken in the regular dinner menu. A friend had told me about this but I just never got around to going. But finally I went! I was meeting friends for drinks at Torst, a bar nearby, and I decided to go to Greenpoint early to eat this.

SO GLAD I DID! WOW! That first bite into the drumstick. The saltiness, the awesome flavor, the juiciness of the meat. I slathered the honey butter onto the chicken because that was the right thing to do. Also great biscuit.

I can't believe this chicken isn't on anyone's "best of" list because it should be.

$16 (3 pieces with biscuit and honey butter)
