The Fly is a restaurant/wine bar in Bed-Stuy from the people behind Cervo’s and Hart’s, and it has a very short menu. Aside from a sandwich, the only real entree is rotisserie chicken. You can either get a whole or a half, and it’ll come out crispy on the outside, and juicy and flavorful on the inside. There are also a couple of sides, like fries, salad, and some very good sautéed greens. Whatever you order, get some wine to go with it. There’s a great selection, and most of the glasses cost under $15. If you need a spot for a fun and relatively affordable night out with some friends or date, this place is perfect. (Just know that they don’t take reservations.)
