5. Costco (241 East Linwood Boulevard) — This whole makes the list as much for its taste (Fat City's Charles Ferruzza believes it to be succulent and moist) as it price — $4.99 plus tax. For a meal (or several meals) at home, this is a solid choice.
3. Cafe Europa (323 E. 55th St.) — The Crestwood eatery has roast chicken over mixed greens with dried cranberries, walnuts, goat cheese and dijon vinaigrette. It's light and rich at the same time — one of the rare examples when everyone at the table might just wish they ordered your salad.
2. Tannin (1526 Walnut Street) — For those who are conscious of their poultry's life before the plate, Tannin is serving up free range chicken breasts. Those who go by taste will be no less impressed with the roasted chicken served with yukon potatoes, carmelized brussels sprouts and a pan juice.
1. Pot Pie (904 Westport Road) — The pan-roasted chicken here is one of the rare chicken dishes where you never feel like you settled. Opt in for a side of whipped potatoes or their steak chips (maybe just get a plate of those) and a glass of wine and you're on your way to forgetting that's it cold outside.
Who's got the best roast chicken in town for your money?
