Dirty Bird To Go
155 Chambers Street, Tribeca

Only in New York can you snag an order from a fried chicken joint and realize—after sinking your teeth into a crisp-skinned, slow- roasted rotisserie bird or an astoundingly juicy fried drumstick—that this is grub from a James Beard Award winner. Former Dirty Bird owner and recipe developer Allison Vines-Rushing has worked with international restaurateur Alain Ducasse, and a simple bite reveals her vast skills. The fare this chicken joint is turning out is, believe it or not, good for you. Of course, rotisserie chicken is a healthier choice than the crispy stuff (which is soaked in buttermilk and fried in peanut oil), but every Dirty Bird sent out the door is hormone- and antibiotic-free and locally raised. And if you go for the fried stuff, the oil they use for frying is recycled for biodiesel fuel. Sin with a side of sautéed garlic kale—it’s excellent here, locally grown and dotted with chili peppers and garlic. Although this is a chicken joint, it has a large selection of salads and veggie sides to add an antioxidant boost to your meal.

This restaurant may have you re-evaluating your preconceived notion of the Yiddish term “bubby.” The ardently American menu lists “things we do to make good food for you” which includes everything from frying in organic, non-GMO, expeller-pressed canola oil to sourcing fish, flour, meat and milk from New York State sources. Barbecue, which is slow-smoked on the premises using local hogs and wood, is the specialty here. The basin-size barbecue sampler includes ribs, brisket and pulled pork punctuated with hot pepper flakes, and comes with two sides (we are fans of the sautéed spinach and baked beans). Bubby’s grinds meat daily for its mammoth grass-fed burger which emerges from the kitchen a ruddy medium-rare, its juices forming a beefy puddle for the crisp fries and a homemade dill pickle on the side. To even things out, order a seasonal vegetable plate loaded with farmers-market greens or a side of spinach sautéed with ample amounts of garlic.

Wine Tasting Preview: Frankly Wines

Frankly“Fine Wine. No Attitude.” is the motto at Frankly Wines, on West Broadway between Murray and Warren. Owner Christy Frank’s friendly yet studied approach is evident in her description of what she will be pouring in her store this Saturday between 12:30pm-3:30pm:

We’re going with a trio of ciders. Rosé may be the new big thing, but we think cider is the NEXT new big thing. We’ll be pouring a range of styles, including some local and local-ish bottlings. So get ahead of the trend and come by to try what the next new fuss will be about.

  • Zapiain (Basque): Some basque ciders can be a little funky. They’re more of a love-it-or-hate it bottles. But this one is all love it. Crisp, racy, super refreshing… this is what you’ll want to drink when the heat spikes above 90. Price: $10.99
  • Slyboro Hidden Star (NY): Just a touch of sweetness makes this a lovely introduction to the world of cider. It’s charming and oh-so drinkable… like a perfectly ripe apple in liquid form. Price: $14.99
  • Eden Dry Sparkling (VT): The most wine-like of the bunch. Elegantly sparkling with just a touch of spice. It shows off cider’s sophisticated side. Price: $19.99

Wine Tasting Preview: Chambers Street Wines

ChambersNot only is Taste of Tribeca lucky to have the support of so many of our local restaurants, we are also fortunate to partner with a few of our neighborhood’s best wine shops for our wine tasting tourChambers Street Wines, on Chambers between Hudson and Greenwich, specializes in organic wines from small, artisanal producers. They will be pouring a few of these wines at their store on Saturday between 2pm-7pm. Here is their line-up, including tasting notes:

  • Parentière 2012 Fraîcheur Iodée L’Atlantique: A delicious, organic wine from the Loire Valley of France made from a grape called Gros Plante. Crisp, dry, and perfect for summer.
  • Barou 2013 Vin de Pays Syrah: Syrah from a certified biodynamic estate in the northern Rhône Valley of France. Deep and dark, but still very fresh with a touch of earthiness.
  • Defino 2012 Frappato: Made from organic Frappato grapes grown in Sicily, this is a light-bodied red wine that is great with all kinds of food and on its own, served slightly chilled.
  • Ferme St. Martin 2014 Rosé: Made from organically grown Grenache, Syrah, and Cinsault from the Côtes du Ventoux in the southern Rhône Valley. Has nice weight on the palate but is very dry with cherry fruit and great minerality.

Executive chef and New York institution David Bouley has partnered with the Tsuji Culinary Institute of Osaka to prepare traditional Japanese dishes with just a hint of fusion. The restaurant’s main room has the lovely, spare feel of a Buddhist shrine in which every detail is just so, from the large, rice paper–lined windows to the rough, honey-colored wooden walls. Meals are prepared by instructors from Tsuji and overseen by chef Isao Yamada, and are the result of thousands of hours of collaborative research. Traditionally, a kaiseki menu, which originated in the imperial courts of Kyoto, comprises a series of small plates artfully arranged with an eye to color and form and with a strong emphasis on seasonal flavors. Brushstroke offers two such tasting menus per night, but those looking for a lighter meal will be well satisfied with the equally meticulous a la carte offerings, which arrive on the table like tiny, edible still-life paintings. All the meats at Brushstroke are certified organic, and all tofu is sourced from Japan.
