Four-Star Chickens

Considering the fact that I cook a whole chicken about once a week, I’m very curious about these high-end chickens that are being groomed for and by New York’s best restaurants. Apparently, Jean-Georges was on the verge of tears when he tried one and Daniel Humm, from Eleven Madison Park, ate a whole bird in one sitting. Still, it’s hard to avoid chuckling at: “The Per Se chickens will eat only Per Se peelings and bread; the diet of the Gramercy Tavern chickens will come only from Gramercy Tavern.” Portlandia is, appropriately, invoked. (Thanks, Rob, for sending this my way.)
