Best Molasses Chicken in Brooklyn (2008)
New City Bar & Grill
No one who has eaten in the New City Bar & Grill (formerly known as the New City Café) before its move will recognize it now. It has been transformed into a slick, sophisticated boîte that is practically in BAM's lobby. One thing, though, hasn't changed: the wonderfully Southern taste of the molasses-glazed chicken, its still-crispy bits topped with a glossy coating of dark cane-flavored syrup. Some things are just too good to mess with.
