    The two thighs were perfectly cooked, with a crisp exterior, and a deliciously moist interior. I was afraid that being smothered in gravy would ruin the crisp exterior. This was not true at all, however, I just kept stuffing that gravy smothered chicken in my mouth and it remained juicy, moist, delicious, and crispy skinned. The “plain” chicken was good, too, but I found myself dipping pieces of it into the gravy eagerly and happily. Delicious. With a piece of waffle, a little dash of syrup? Just another step closer to the grave, and another bite of heaven…

    I’m pretty picky about fried chicken and have been seeking the best in the city for purchase, and have yet to find my fried chicken nirvana… until now. I think this may just be the best fried chicken I’ve had in NYC so far – crisp, crunchy exterior that stayed (mostly) crisp to the end, flavorful, seasoned well, with juicy meat that was definitely not overcooked – oh my stars. I was literally in heaven as I nommed each piece and I quite piggily ate my entire platter, but I went home and didn’t have to eat for the rest of the day… so good.

    Bobwhite is so delicious that it’s still good cold (duh) or re-heated the next morning for breakfast. Seriously. It’s delicious. There’s a reason it’s my favorite place. And NO ONE is going to ruin MY fried chicken place for me. Bad dates or not.

    Crisp exterior. Lightly battered, with the thinnest crust ever, and a juicy, moist interior. Very, very good fried chicken indeed. The best in America? Well, this is going to be tricky. It’s very, very good fried chicken. Extremely tasty. But this is not, personally, fried chicken that I’d want on a very regular basis. Just not my daily, go-to fried chicken. Willie Mae, I tip my hat to you, good lady; you make excellent fried chicken.

    I tearfully nommed on my thigh with such joy, my moans of delight may have scared the other diners – if there were any. I visited in that odd hour between lunch and dinner, almost as though I knew I’d be making a scene otherwise. Crisp exterior, moist interior, juicy, flavorful, and just excellent, excellent, excellent fried chicken. My mouth waters writing this, describing the pure joy I felt with each bite, each mouthful.

    They remind me of Korean fried chicken, but with more garlic, more Chinese influence to the seasonings. Really tasty. I’m totally OK getting just the dry fried chicken every single time I go – along with my very own bowl of noodles… yummm.

    Fried chicken and champagne? Yes please! What more can you ask for when a fried chicken restaurant is also known for its champagne menu. Definitely lives up to its name Birds and Bubbles.

    the flavor in the crust was excellent, and the meat was moist, juicy, tender, awesome. I was in heaven chowing down on the dark meat. SO GOOD. I can’t just go to Penn Yan any time I want, so that’s a huge negative… but it was really effing good.

    While the thigh was deliciously greasy and hot and juicy all the way through… the breast did a very good job copying his darker friend. I think the fried chicken gets a butter rubdown prior to flouring and frying, and it shows.

    This wasn’t actually so spicy I wanted to curl up and cry, but had a nice kick to it, and some nice spices. It also wasn’t as juicy as I’d have liked, or crispy, but solidly tasty and I wouldn’t object to ordering it again
