Rotisserie Georgette Owner Georgette Farkas Shares Her Recipes for a Roast Guinea Hen Feast

Source: Grub Street NY

For this year’s Holiday Food special, we sent American cooks with French restaurants into homes (and the Frick) to host relatively easy-to-replicate dinners.

Just a few hours before eight dinner guests were set to arrive at Rotisserie Georgette owner Georgette Farkas’s 17th-floor penthouse apartment on East 79th Street, …

Adam Platt and Josh Stein are taking a week off, and Steve Cuozzo’s review will drop on Friday. Time Out New York has not printed a restaurant review since Daniel S. Meyer stepped down a few weeks ago, and the mag has not announced a new critic. But plenty of other critics and bloggers are still at it:

Week in Reviews: Pete Wells Gives Two Stars to Rôtisserie Georgette

[Rotisserie Georgette by Daniel Krieger]

Pete Wells likes the fact that Rôtisserie Georgette serves a straightforward menu of roasted meats, salads, and potatoes. The critic thinks that Georgette Farkas has created a comfortable, adult restaurant with a kitchen that delivers the goods:

Rôtisserie Georgette will sell you half a chicken for $24 or a whole one, which feeds two people for $36 each. The economy model, raised on an Amish farm in Indiana, is rubbed with herbes de Provence and cracked coriander seeds. Roasted chickens don’t always pick up the flavor of the herbs they’re stuffed with. ...

Instead of a formal restaurant review this week, Pete Wells rounds up the city’s top bowls of ramen. He’s a fan of the noodles at Hanjan, Minca, Rai Rai Ken, and Totto, but his favorite version of the dish is served at Mu Ramen, Joshua and Heidy Smookler’s Long Island City pop-up:

Mu’s cloudy tonkotsu broth, simmered with pork bones for most of a day, stopped me cold. It had the body of old-fashioned, cream-on-top milk from a tiny dairy. Of course it clings ...

New York City is overrun with shareable chicken dishes. At some restaurants, the chicken for two is an affordable and terrific entree option, while at others, you’re basically getting taken to the cleaners via a large pile of chalky poultry. For a glimpse at the spread, check out Eater’s Chicken for Two Index, with everything you need to know about 14 popular birds:

Pete Wells is pleased to see that Hugue Dufour and Sarah Obraitis are attempting to breathe life into the steakhouse genre at their new Long Island City restaurant. But the critic finds a mixed bag:

M. Wells Steakhouse needs some fixing itself. Discipline is not its strong suit, for better and for worse. It can lurch from magnificence to sloppiness, from inspired fever dreams to inarticulate notions that aren’t ready to leave the kitchen. One thing that needs improvement is the steak. This isn’t as fatal as you’d think, because when M. ...

As noted yesterday, Philly Import Han Dynasty gets a big fat goose egg from Pete Wells this week. But the critic also reviews six-month-old Japanese newcomer Hirohisa:

I love the way Hirohisa Hayashi, the chef, brings out the whispering harmonies that result when one small wave of flavor laps against another.

He finds those harmonies in the way lightly charred blocks of sesame tofu come together with buttery lobes of sea urchin and shreds of fresh wasabi. And again in the bowl of raw salmon layered over white rice, which becomes a steaming ...

Wells admires how the team renovated and essentially preserved a Bay Area institution. He also likes the food from Bloomfield and chef de cuisine Josh Even: “Our server insisted that we swipe the potatoes through the chicken’s wonderfully old-school sauce of Marsala and cream. ‘That’s where the money is,’ she said. Actually, I liked it better than money. I also liked that Ms. Bloomfield and Mr. Even’s menu doesn’t reach for a 1919 Italian-American ...

Pete Wells likes the somewhat sophisticated vibe of Franny’s spinoff Marco’s. The critic also finds several winners on chef Danny Amend‘s menu:

On his menu, antipasti are followed by pastas that are succeeded by fish and meats. This sounds like Italy, but it tastes like Northern California. The late San Francisco chef Judy Rodgers may have thought up the casually Mediterranean and very charming fried egg, sunny-side up, crisscrossed with rosemary needles and sent out with roasted mushrooms and sweet, soft pumpkin. Paul Bertolli may have grilled the duck gizzards on ...

Yuzukosho, a paste of bright yuzu peel and burning chiles, bites playfully into the cool sweetness of a sea scallop lopped from its shell just a minute before it’s served, its edges still fluttering. That scallop dish is distinctively his, and once you’ve had it you’d know it anywhere.” Wells waves his wand and gives the restaurant four stars. [NYT]

It’s the bottle service of poultry. You expect nearly naked hostesses with sparklers trailing the sizzling plate. It deserves an entourage.” [Observer]

Proprietor Georgette Farkas discovered them on a trip with her old boss Daniel Boulud a few years ago. Farkas tells the Post: “After my Montréal tasting tour…I learned that rotisserie chicken is so simple, but you have to do it right. These restaurants gave me the confidence to do it with simplicity.” [NYP]
