Marcus Samuelsson's poultry-focused restaurant in Harlem revolves around chicken, both rotisserie and fried. The "Bird & Three" speciality is a full dinner that includes a whole roasted chicken with a side of mashed potatoes, collard greens, and cornbread. The menu includes flavors from all over the world, so expect dishes like chicken, rice noodles, and vegetables in coconut curry broth or wings tossed in a honey-citrus sauce. The space is decorated with a sensibility to Harlem street culture: a boom box art installation covers the walls and there are chairs made out of skateboards. When the weather is warm, the garage door windows open out onto the street.
