Elegant, sophisticated, classy, and just flat out delicious. These are the words that come to mind when I think of Rotisserie Georgette. Located on the Upper East Side, Rotisserie Georgette serves classic French dishes that are elegantly put together and taste just as beautiful as they look. The restaurant is known for their chicken dishes, and I sit here now writing this review from my chicken coma!…
The best part about Rotisserie Georgette is how gluten friendly the restaurant is! Gluten is only found at the restaurant in the form of bread, and all dishes with bread can be prepared without it. To start, I highly recommend the Salade ‘G’ which includes Asian pear, candied walnuts, and lardons. This salad is amazing! The bacon bits are incredibly flavorful, and I could eat it every day. All of the chicken entrees look so delicious, at first it was difficult to choose which one to order! However, when I heard about the Poule De Luxe which is stuffed with wild mushroom and quinoa and topped with seared foie gras and dressed in jus the decision became easy. When this dish was first introduced to the menu, the stuffing contained breadcrumbs and it was off-limits to us gluten free folk. But given the number of gluten free people who requested this dish and were disappointed to learn that they were not able to indulge, the RG team removed breadcrumbs from the stuffing and began using quinoa instead! I can attest- it tastes just as great! As delicious as the chicken was, the list of vegetable and potato sides had my mouth watering. My friend and I ordered the roasted carrots and crispy baby artichokes. BOTH are must orders; the roasted sweet carrots may be some of the best roasted carrots I have ever had!
Georgette herself is a staple at the restaurant, and her love and dedication to the restaurant is incredibly apparent. Rotisserie Georgette is homey, the staff is incredibly kind, and the food will have you back in no time. Whatever you do, make sure to complete your meal with the flourless chocolate souffle and chocolate truffles… it’s the perfect finish to a perfect meal!
