Brick-oven Roast Chicken

Zuni Cafe

Eater
Zuni Café is known for excelling in many departments — Caesar salad, Bloody Marys, oysters, burgers — but its much-imitated roast chicken with bread salad is not only the restaurant's defining dish, but a key building block in the evolution of California cuisine. Chicken is often the ugly stepsister of restaurant menus, but Zuni's is incredibly succulent, with perfectly crisp skin. The real treat, though, is the bread salad, with the dose of glorious chicken jus that melts into the crisp bread and brings it together with the tang of the currants, pine nuts, and greens. It's a heartwarming dish.

This chicken has ruined me forever. Now whenever I eat roast chicken elsewhere, or make it at home, I'll have to know it pales in comparison to this unbelievable rendition!

Sell your case, re-mortgage your house, do whatever you can to try this immediately. It's expensive, you have ot wait an hour for them to make it, but it's worth it.

They make it to order, so be prepared for a 1 hour+ wait. But it's so worth it, trust us!

Throw out everything you've heard about this dish, and raise your expectations even higher. This chicken is all sorts of amazing. Juicy, moist and oozing with flavor.

The only thing better than this roast chicken is the bread salad it comes with. Good thing they are partneres in crime, otherwise I'd be pissed :)

Amazing! It's served with a warm bread salad, which reminded me of a cross between panzanella and traditional thanksgiving stuffing!
