    Jidori Karaage ($10) at Sumi Robata Bar

    This tiny, modern Japanese grill is the last place we expected to find quite possibly the city�s best fried chicken. Here Jidori Karaage, the Japanese version of fried chicken, is a revelation. Coated with tissue-paper-thin breading and accompanied by lemon to squeeze over the crispy pieces, it�s almost reminiscent of Italian fritto misto. A dab of vividly green paste made from shishito peppers for dipping provides a slightly bitter note. The chicken is simple and juicy and, most importantly, it tastes like chicken and not a slew of spices�reminding you what you came here for in the first place.
