I’m counting down the 100 best dishes I tasted in 2015…
People don’t often realize how delicious chicken can actually be. Marc Forgione has mastered the art of revealing every ounce of flavor from the poultry. Half a chicken is pan-roasted under a brick and ensures the bird has the crispiest skin possible and the butter, lemon, and salt complement the flavor of the meat and allows the soft flesh to fall right off the bone. It’s accompanied with potatoes, broccoli rabe, and rich, homey pan drippings. You’ll forget Thanksgiving ever existed. Price: $31/$62 (for two)

Come back every Wednesday for another funny, informative video documenting my inept food adventures.
Because I am not part of the 1%, I don’t get to eat at too many fancy restaurants. But a few times a year, I get lucky (either from a big bonus check or a special event). Earlier this year in the freezing cold, I was asked by Tastemade to make a video on Marc Forgione. The restaurant is named for the Iron Chef who also handles the menu. It was one of the best meals I’ve had in a long time (look for some of the dishes to appear on my 100 Best list), but unfortunately one I will probably not be able to repeat for quite a while.
Every week, I document another dish that impressed and satiated me during my food adventures around New York City
Ah, Valentine’s Day! The day we all get gouged – by Hallmark, by chocolate companies, and definitely by restaurants who charge astronomical prices for usually lower quality dishes.
That’s why I recommend taking that special someone for a special dinner the days around the “big” holiday. Restaurants don’t force you into a prix-fixe menu on the 13th or 15th of February. And may I suggest Marc Forgione?
