This is technically Lucky Bird’s second location - the original opened at Grand Central Market in 2018 - but the expansive new space gives the fried chicken specialist its first true brick-and-mortar. The bright, airy space has long tables perfect for large group hangouts - not to mention eight rotating beer taps if you’re looking to get a little buzz. As for the food, the chicken sammie platter is our go-to, which for $8.95, gets you a giant piece of crunchy, meaty chicken topped with pickles and creamy house sauce on a soft potato bun, plus perfectly-salted fries and a side of your choice. It’s one of the most affordable, quick lunch options in the neighborhood.
