Bobwhite Lunch & Supper Counter
New York, NY 10009
Village Voice's Description
While the experience is decidedly more down-home than downtown, the expert, pressure-fried chicken at the tiny Bobwhite Lunch and Supper Counter might be the best in the city. Find the crispy birds in a wonderful sandwich lined with bread and butter pickles, or invite three friends to join you for the fried chicken supper with hot biscuits and cold tap beer. Other satisfyingly greasy, Southern classics worth a try are the pork chop sandwich (made with meat from Bev Eggleston's EcoFriendly Foods) and grilled pimento cheese on Orwasher's bread, which will leave you licking your fingers.
Tips from foursquare
Best fried chicken in the Alphabet City. I hear the porkchop is off the chain too.
Bobwhite's family-recipe butterflied pork chop's attentively seared, then topped with mayo and chow chow, a mustardy relish. Once you go here, you won't want pork chops from anywhere else.
Fried chicken is unreal. Biscuits and slaw are strong too
The fried chicken meal with biscuit and salad is very good, cooked to order and served with hot sauce or honey.
Make sure to check out the sides. The Cheddar Grits & Black Eyes Peas are great.
