What the Critics are Saying

  • "Fried chicken has already had several well-publicized moments during the course of this endless comfort-food boom, and now it seems to be experiencing another one. If you don’t believe me, try joining the scrum of fried-chicken loons that tends to form in the evenings outside Sarah Simmons’s sneakily posh restaurant, Birds & Bubbles, near the northern border of Chinatown." — Adam Platt, New York Magazine
