"It's a temple of chicken in midtown Manhattan, the real deal and a long-time chefs' favorite. Head up the stairs and give them your name and telephone number-then have a drink next door at the karaoke joint until they call you. After about two hours of snacking on perfect, charcoal-grilled skewers of chicken skin, butt, heart, livers and other poultry-related goodies, English chef Marco Pierre White asked me, ‘Anthony? Do they have...vegetables here?' My answer: ‘Who cares?'" —Chef Anthony Bourdain
