The roast chicken at 232 Bleecker - the first full-service restaurant from the people behind the fast-casual chain, Dig - is a strong contender for our guide, Where To Go When You Want A Really Good Roast Chicken. Pick something out from the excellent wine list, and share the juicy, salty half-bird with a date while sitting at the chef’s counter. Other entrees, like undersalted scallops and tagliatelle drenched in liquidy sauce, aren’t as enjoyable. So if you want anything besides the chicken, stick to the vegetable-focused small plates like caramelized carrots with hot honey and airy ricotta.
