Upper East Side
The white tablecloths, colorfully chic interior and attentive waitstaff may make you hesitate to eat with your hands. It would be a real shame to miss a single scrap of the excellent rotisserie chicken, so if you’re too shy to gnaw a drumstick in public, get your overflowing, affordable platter to go. You must order chicken (the restaurant’s name is Spanish for the “cheep cheep” sound of baby chicks); the only question is which preparation you want. The most popular plate, the Matador Combo, is a whole roasted chicken plus rice, beans, avocado salad and fried plantains, with a creamy jalapeño dipping sauce on the side—more than enough for a family of four.

Excellent chicken, can't say enough good things about it. It's so flavorful and juicy, with perfectly crispy skin. The seafood ceviche makes me feel like I'm in Costa Rica, which is the last place I got extremely fresh seafood ceviche. The sangria is wonderful too, and I like the yuca fries with the garlic dipping sauce. Also, can't forget about the famous green sauce, if you're looking for a little extra heat with your meal. I also like that they aren't overly expensive.
