Time Out Says

Already one of New York's most beloved destinations for fried bird since opening in 2006, Sarah Sanneh's down-home den is spreading its Brooklyn wings and landing in Manhattan. The second location of the lunch-counter–style joint mirrors its Williamsburg sibling (retro red barstools, a skylight) but also touts its new neighborhood, adding touches of Chinatown and the Lower East Side with dishes like herb-chicken dumpling soup and a sweet-and-savory sourdough glazed doughnut. "I live in the area, and I walk these funny little triangle blocks between East Broadway, Canal and Division Street," Sanneh says. "I love every corner." Manhattan-exclusive sides include a raw collard-green salad and cauliflower gratin, but many of the shop's Southern-fried favorites will cross the East River, including crackly-skinned drumsticks, flaky sweet biscuits and a slew of sandwiches (catfish, chicken biscuit, Hippie Banjo) in addition to the standby pies (bourbon-pecan, banana cream).
