I forget who it was but someone out there was raving about RR chicken at Ferry Plaza. After that and a rec from a friend who had it last time we lunched there, I tried it on Saturday.

It was wonderful. Meat was moist and the skin like the thinnest, richest potato chip. Mind you, I'm not saying it was as good as the chicken I had at Chez Panisse the day before. But, it was wonderful. I would rate it behind only CP and Il Pollaio. I haven't been to Zuni in a while. It was hella sick.

I had the quarter chicken combo lunch and then returned to buy a whole chicken. He was selling out shortly after 1. Also bought a lamb special from the last roast standing. As expected, it was a little done for my tastes, but very flavorful nonetheless. I heated it and the potatoes in a little chicken broth and it was damn good too. The lamb cries out for a little gravy.
