Roast chicken can swing from boring to otherworldly in a moment's time. But when it's done right, there's nothing better than a bird that's moist, juicy, and tender on the inside, and crisp, salty, and crackly on the outside. It's a great indicator for the cooking chops of a kitchen, and the ones that do it right often pass the litmus test in other areas, too.
It's all too easy to fall into the trap of dry roast chicken, but this list is stacked with the plumpest and juiciest in town. These versions span a variety of cuisines (Italian, Peruvian, Cuban, and more), all putting their own spin on the humble chicken while fastidiously maintaining its juicy integrity. Some of the restaurants included are dedicated to the bird alone, while others serve it on a menu of other dishes. It's easy to overlook the chicken in the latter case, but you'd be remiss to do so at these establishments.
