Dirty French

Was able to try Dirty French in the Lower East Side last night with a good friend. It was a great welcome meal to my second night in NYC. We split the chicken & crepes. It was amazeballs; you get an entire chicken to split with another person, although this could have easily fed 4. The white meat arrived on a wood cutting board in a cast iron pan with a simple dijon sauce. Delicious with the creme fraiche. The dark meat, complete with chicken feet, came separately & was served on the cutting board beside the pan. It was fragrant from the lemongrass & coconut, & the skin was melty-caramely in your mouth. You popped that into your crepe with the radish & mint accoutrement. Tast-y.
That was all we had. That was all we needed, save for the glass of red we each had with dinner.

And if you get there between 3:30 & 5:30pm, waiting for the restaurant to open as we did, lounging at The Ludlow Hotel’s lobby with their wine list isn’t such a bad way to kill time.
