Take a look at Theodore Roosevelt’s birthplace (a handsome 1840s brownstone) before stepping into Le Coq Rico next door, a jazzy French bistro with some history of its own. Antoine Westermann, a legendary chef with five Paris restaurants, has come to New York to share his passion for chicken, game birds, terrines and foie gras. He met local farmers on their land to make sure the birds he’s sourcing have led humane lives, and his beak-to-tail-feather philosophy includes platters of offal, sautéed chicken livers and duck rillettes as well as rotisserie chicken and Cornish hen. The bar is great for wine and cocktails along with bar bites like Indian-spiced chicken croquettes and popcorn popped in duck fat. The sleek space is decorated in a palette of gray, black and white, the crowd sophisticated and international.
