New Korean restaurant Chick Chick at 618 Amsterdam Avenue near 90th Street is getting strong reviews right off the bat. It just opened about a month ago, and both Eater and Gothamist have weighed in.
Eater’s review is lengthy, and includes descriptions of various chicken sandwiches and wings. The Nashville chicken sandwich is not as spicy as some other versions of that sandwich, but it’s got some unique twists, for instance. And the chicken is hormone-free and vegetarian-fed, making it stand out from some other chicken restaurants, reviewer Ryan Sutton notes. The one negative in the review is that the outdoor dining setup is a little too enclosed, but the owner plans to open it up more as the weather warms.
Gothamist also liked the chicken, but highlighted other dishes too. “As much as we enjoyed all of the above, the best thing on our table may have been Park’s Kimchi Fried Rice, a big pile of chewy grains in a fiery sauce, studded with bits of chicken sausage, funked up with tobiko, and nicely complemented by a runny egg. This is a terrific dish, definitely get it to share no matter what else you ordered. The fries are very good as well, and come in a generously-portioned cone,” reviewer Scott Lynch wrote.
