Roasted Chicken Breast @ La Petite Grocery
The French side of this Uptown bistro’s soul demands that there is always a good roasted chicken dish on the menu. The one on the current card is a breast sent out with a confit of soft wild mushrooms, with red quinoa covering most of the chicken’s surface. Pureed parsnips disguise themselves as mashed potatoes, at least until you eat them. Is this really $29? Yes, and we arrived at that price mark sooner than I thought, too. It its defense, the chicken holds up its end in the flavor department.
