Since I didn’t have much of a vacation over my holiday — being struck with the flu and in bed the whole time wasn’t very festive! — we decided to take a day for some actual fun. So, yes… A Big Day of Fun in Manhattan was in order!
After a suprise snow squall left a couple of inches on our cars, we nearly cancelled. But it turned out to be the pefect day for museums and fancy lunch. Specifically roast chicken and chicken pot pie at this warm, welcoming space known as Rotisserie Georgette.
The Georgette in question is Georgette Farkas, who, for many years, ran the public relations for Daniel Boulud. (SCF fans may remember our epic meal in the skybox at Daniel, which Georgette was instrumental in setting up. And here is a link to other Daniel coverage on the achive blog and on the current one.) We didnt’ see Georgette this time around, but I felt like she was there in spirit, for sure.
So yeah, you don’t go to Rotisserie Georgette and not get poulet frites.
Eating the poulet frites on a dreary day such as this one reminded us of the time we stumbled upon a little cafe in Paris while seaching for an engagmenet ring along the Rue St.-Honoré in Paris. We don’t know the name of the place, but we’ll never forget the meal. Rainy and cold outside. Steamy and warm inside. Crispy fries. Juicy chicken. Just the best.
