Trending on Recent OpenTable Restaurant Reviews: Roast Chicken

Of course, not *everyone* is excited about the increased interest in roasted chicken.

Roast chicken has become a staple of fine-dining menus, as Josh Ozersky has recently pointed out, thanks, in part, to the amazing roasted chickens being served at restaurants from the famous Zuni Cafe in San Francisco to new-ish New York hotspot The NoMad (see below).  Find out what OpenTable diners are saying about this recently elevated — yet always appreciated — dish.

* 4580, Boulder, Colorado: “OMG! What a treat! The food (every last bit from appetizers, salads, and main course) was 5 stars! SO DELICIOUS!!! I had the red flesh trout over pea puree and my husband had the roast chicken with creamy polenta….YUM!!!!!!”

* Balaboosta, New York, New York: “Great meal start to finish. Started with red sangria, carrot and goat cheese pizza, and kataifi-wrapped shrimp. Fantastic. Skirt steak and roast chicken were possibly the best ever.”

* Campanula, San Francisco, California: “The roast chicken is great. They accomodated my special request on reservation for strawberry ice cream sandwiches to celebrate my girlfriend’s birthday. I really appreciated this and will be back for this gesture alone, much less the great chicken and service.”

Farmhouse Tavern, New York, New York: “The food was fantastic. I had the roasted Amish half chicken. The meat was incredibly tender and flavorful, while the potatoes and asparagus were so fresh, you could have told me they were hand picked from a garden in the back of the restaurant.”

Los Gatos Brewing Company, Los Gatos, California: “The roasted chicken is VERY good. Spit roasted over a wood fire, probably brined before. Can’t go wrong.”

Miel at the InterContinental Hotel Boston, Boston Massachusetts: “My fiance ordered the roasted half chicken in mustard sauce — it came in a skillet and was delicate and full of flavor. He asked for the recipe — which they gave.”

Millesime, New York, New York: “Superb! The romance and excellent food as if you were in Paris. The staff was outstanding, and the roasted chicken is so delicious, it’s heartwarming.”

Mon Ami Gabi, Las Vegas, Nevada: “This is a wonderful place to eat. The kids’ menu is really good. Steak was cooked exactly as ordered. Roasted chicken was full of flavor.”

* The NoMad, New York, New York: “Always excellent service. Had the roast chicken this time. This brings chicken to new heights of gastronomic distinction!”

The NoMad, New York, New York: “The roast chicken is old-style French and superb — maybe the best roast chicken experience anywhere.”

Prime Cut Cafe & Wine Bar, Orange, California: “Three of us had the roast chicken, as it was great the last time we were in. The chicken was excellent again — including the more spicy version.”
