The Best Chicken Parm Dishes in NYC

Lauren Wax

I'm a big sucker for chicken parmesan. The cheesier the better. I know it's not an authentic Italian dish, but I will almost always order it when it is on a menu (or I will make my husband order it, so I can have a bite.. or half of his dish). There are so many incredible italian spots in NYC, but here's are my top 5 favorite chicken parm dishes.

5. Cafe Fiorello

This chicken parm is one of my favorites because it's really thin, crisp and not too filling so you can try the many other amazing pasta dishes. I could also probably easily do damage eating it all on my own. Bonus: you can also order it with Pepperoni on top.

4. Tony's Di Napoli

It's no shocker that one of the oldest and most classic Italian spots made the list. Their chicken parm is served family style, so come with an appetite. The marinara sauce is incredible and the cheese to chicken ratio is on point.

3. Quality Italian

I'm sure you've heard about, seen pictures and/or have tasted this chicken parm "pizza" and it's because it definitely lives up to the hype. I've never been able to eat more than two slices, so definitely come with a big group and leave room for the other amazing things on the menu (cough cough: garlic bread and the eggplant & burrata!)

2. Parm

With a name like "Parm" how can you not have good chicken parm? Whether you get the chicken parm sub or chicken parm plate with spicy rotini pasta or linguini you will not be disappointed. You can tell they use very fresh mozzarella and will savor every single bite. They keep opening new locations, so chances are there is one by your nearest subway line!

1. Coppola's

And the winning chicken parmesan goes to.. Coppola's! It's truely the best I've ever had -- just look at this beauty on the left! The cheesiness is unreal and it's perfectly crisp. You can tell that the owner and chef Salvatore Coppola started his career at an early age and uses recipes passed down from generation to generation. The staff is always very welcoming and the extensive wine list is always a bonus!

If you have any other spots that I should check out, definitely let me know!

A Wickedly good Restaurant Opens in the West Village

You do what self-taught chef and restaurateur, Zod Arifai did. With plans to open his newest restaurant, Wicked Jane, on April 7th, he was put in a tough position. He clearly could not open the restaurant in the way that he had originally planned and had to be creative when it came to his opening strategy. Lucky for New Yorkers, Chef Zod decided to open Wicked Jane despite the difficult road ahead. Wicked Jane is located in Greenwich Village, an area usually bustling with foot-traffic. In “normal” times, it’s the perfect place for a new restaurant to open, some might argue, but because of the pandemic, the streets are pretty quiet, at least by New York standards. Despite these setbacks, Chef Zod was able to open a beautiful restaurant with delicious food. Those brave enough to venture out to the village, will be captivated by the new addition to the neighborhood. Whether it’s the deep purple and blue velvety chairs, the checkered tile floor or the sheer aromas from the kitchen, your curiosity will strike, as you make your way into the outdoor patio for some cocktails and delicious food. Wicked Jane serves a menu of Modern American small plates. From the fresh heirloom tomato salad with peaches to lightly cooked salmon with ginger, grapes and daikon, the aromas and flavors are unmatched. The tables are wood with fresh carnations on each, bringing the ambiance of fine dining outdoors. Here's what we got!
