OTHER NOMINEES Country Panfried Chicken, Egg, Roberta's

Though pedigreed chefs were perfecting the deep-fried thigh and crispy-skinned wing this year, you chose Chang's $100 reservation-only fried-chicken feast because he went the extra mile for flavor: The meal features two enormous piles of poultry—one Southern inflected, with Old Bay; the other Korean, with a spicy-sweet sauce—plus Chinese pancakes and butter-lettuce leaves for wrapping, and bowls of condiments. The spread easily feeds eight. Momofuku Noodle Bar 171 First Ave between 10th and 11th Sts (212-500-0831)
