Bobwhite Lunch & Supper Serves Up Some Of The Best Fried Chicken In NYC… & Grab A Nostalgia Inducing Sample

🎶You know I like my chicken fried, And cold beer on a Friday night, A pair of jeans that fit just right, And the radio on🎶

Well, maybe the cold beer on a Friday night is a cold brew on a Tuesday morning. And the jeans are actually Uniqlo pants. And the radio is a new podcast about serial killers. Whatever, you get the point. 

If you’re a fried chicken fan, and if you’re not on a restrictive diet you better be, at some point over the several years you have found yourself in the homey kitchen of Bobwhite for their flagship dish. Founder and palate behind the restaurant, Keedrick Coulter’s, makes outstanding birds and sides at Bobwhite Lunch and Supper Counter. The crispy, juicy bites will transport you from your desk to the South in seconds. 


Wrap your mouth around any one of their irresistible dishes like the Chicken (not so) little plate, which includes a drumstick, a wing, and the oft sought after thigh. Bobwhite does its chicken the classic Southern style, brining the bird in sweet tea (yes, really), but they manage to avoid the sour taste often found at other spots around NYC.

The meat is hot, juicy, and rich; the skin, dredged in flour and a bevy of spices before boiling in oil, is golden brown and primed for your lunch order. The plate also comes with a top-notch, always buttery biscuit (add honey from your coffee station for a real treat) and a side (curried collards, famous mac n cheese, or tangy coleslaw). Those folks in the kitchen really know what they’re doing.

But wait, there’s more! Buffalo or Plain Chicken Sandwiches are another highlight of the menu. Forget what you’ve heard about the great fried chicken sandwich debate, Bobwhite takes the plate! Made with juicy white meat chicken tenders, both of their sandwiches knock it out of the park. Whether you’re trying to get fit before the holidays or just don’t care, Bobwhite will make you throw your hands up in the air!

New This Week. Dip Into Hummus & Dessert! 🥙

At The Hummus Pita & Co., there are “so many ways to love it.”  Love what, exactly? The world’s most-loved, tastiest, and arguably healthiest, chickpea spread — hummus. True, this wildly successful chain does sell all things hummus. The Chef’s family recipe is a staple in all (yes, all!) dishes, and dessert hummuses are also a specialty. (Chocolate hummus! Cake batter hummus! Cookie dough hummus! Disclaimer: Not available on Stadium, we’re just making a PSA.)

As one would expect in fast-casual land, there’s a myriad of combinations one could choose to assemble the perfect pita, platter, or laffa (an authentic Middle Eastern bread that’s thicker and chewier than pita). The menu takes you through a maze of MidEast flavors via their process of “starting” your meal (with a protein), “making” your meal (with your vessel of choice), “filling” & “topping” it (with fresh salads, condiments, grains), and surely, “saucing” it (with popular things like tahina and tzatziki as well as ooooh… harissa. As in that delicious spicy stuff.

But… with so many combinations, it’s easy to make a mistake hence why we’ve carefully curated the best of the best and the colorful-est of the colorful-est so you can forget the thinking and focus on the eating you’re most welcome. And by the way, while The Hummus Pita Co. is indeed fast, expect these guys to use real-deal methods of cooking their food. Gyros spin daily on a vertical grill, and chicken and steak are marinated overnight then cooked tender in a taboon oven.

Try it this week.

New This Week! Organic Peruvian Staples From Baby Brasa, and Manchi Serves Up Healthy Southern Indian Inspired Dishes!🍗

🍗🍗🍗🍗

Bienvenido, Baby Brasa!

Chef/Entrepreneur/Model/Singer/Actor Franco Noriega is more than just quintuple threat, he’s leading the charge on Peruvian Chicken in NYC with his lively West Village restaurant, Baby Brasa. Opened just a few years back, the former star-turned-restauranteur Franco has established himself as one of the elite Peruvian chefs in NYC. As seen on Ellen, ABC, and Live with Kelly and Ryan, Franco emphasizes the freshness of the ingredients, as well as the traditional Peruvian methods of cooking. This all organic Peruvian spot is typically a sit-down restaurant, however, we’re ditching the wait time and bringing this premier partner straight to you.

While the traditional Peruvian chicken is not to be missed, some of their other dishes are absolute standouts as well. The ceviche is an unforgettable mix of flounder, two types of corn, onions, sweet potatoes, and a refreshing mix of citrus juices.

The Lomo Saltado, one of the most popular Peruvian dishes, is a must-try as well. It is a stir-fry combining marinated strips of sirloin with onions, tomatoes, french fries, and other spices; Served with perfectly cooked Peruvian rice. Take your tastebuds for a dip and get the delicately cooked salmon with a passion fruit reduction sauce, served with white rice.

With so many great options, you’re sure to find the perfect dish for lunch.

Mangia Manchi!

Okay, this place is not Italian, but the food is great! From the tastebuds behind Bombay Sandwich Co. comes a new and exciting Indian restaurant, emphasizing the flavors of Southern India. The eatery, which means ‘good’ in Telugu, presents food from the Andhra region of Southern India in a fast-casual dining setting. Manchi’s vegetable-forward and gluten-free menu is composed of core dishes found in the region.

Enjoy fresh and delicious proteins like cracked chicken or cracked chickpea tofu, with a base of either quinoa, rice, or kale salad, and toppings like spiced veggies including eggplant, cauliflower, potato, and rainbow slaw.

The Classic Curried Chicken Bowl features curried cracked chicken with eggplant, string beans, rainbow slaw, and Indian yoghurt sauce, served over rice. Want something completely different? Try The Detox, a large bowl of kitchari, a savory Indian porridge made with lentils, rice, carrots, peas, and ghee (clarified butter).

Manchi Bojanam! (Enjoy your meal!)
