About

The Bistro of beautiful birds, the menu is all about poultry, whole to share cooked different ways, simple dishes flawlessly prepared, an entire section of the menu dedicated to eggs. Different types of Westermann’s celebrated terrines are available, and the famous Giblets Platter inspired from his "oldest brother" located in Montmartre, Paris.
Le Coq Rico New York is Antoine Westermann’s - a three-star Michelin chef - ode to the unique terroir of America expressed through the flavors of wild and heritage birds.
Le Coq rico offers multiple seating areas, each of which, offer a unique style of dining. Our wine hall sits directly across from our wine tower, allowing one to peruse our library of both French and American wines chosen specifically to compliment the cuisine of our chef. We have our main dining room in the center of the restaurant. And, for those who would like a "bird's eye view" of the kitchen, we offer our chef's counter.

Amazing food and wonderful service. The seats and tables are uncomfortable ... The noise level is ideal. You can have a conversation and hear your companions.

Excellent food. Great wine list. Great ambience and service. Perhaps I underrated it a bit, but hard to know if all of the choices were as good as ours, so I hesitate to rate it higher.

The Chef's Specialty was delicious. However, the climax of the dinner was the desserts. I usually don't order dessert because my stomach has no room for something overly sweet, dough with fatty cream after a delicious savory meal.

The millefeuille was great! The pastry looks like baguette. However, when bite into it, it was crispy, layers of thin dough. The custard cream was not fatty, slightly sweet. I enjoyed every bite.

The I'ile Flottante was even more amazing. The soft meringue under a thin layer of caramel was so airy, soft, not too sweet. Nonetheless, it was rich in floavor. I love it.

We were in from out of town and a friend recommended the restaurant. We are so happy we went!! Everything was phenomenal. We sat at the chefs table and it was so neat to watch everything getting prepared. Everyone speaks French for the most part but if you can get around a French accent you’ll be fine. Definitely recommend this place! We will definitely be back!!

Delicious fresh for gras. Served on apple slices that were too thick though. Leeks vinaigrette are always a winner. The squab was cooked to perfection as was the chicken with morels. The sauce was to die for, as was the vanilla mille feuilles as always a treat. We were sad to see very few people at the food bar.

Excellent - seems like a simple roasted chicken but it's so much more - starting with only the best ingredients and prepared to perfection. Desserts were outstanding. Only problem is they don't know how to make a cup of tea...

This was our third time at Le Coq Rico and it was as wonderful as the first two times. The food was expertly prepared and the service was impeccable. We had a member of our party with a food allergy and the restaurant could not be more accommodating.

Second time here. The first time we had the chef’s specialty. It was incredible. This time we ordered two different individual chicken entrees. The dishes were delicious but my meal was not hot. I was reluctant to send it back and create a scene. We thoroughly enjoyed the potato purée side dish. The Frenchie Bellini with peach and lavender in champagne was incredible. The dessert - a strawberry soufflé with strawberry sorbet was amazing. The finale was an espresso martini. Had the dishes been served hot - I would have rated the restaurant higher. Our server- Elana was wonderful.

My second visit to what is the undisputed best poultry in the city. And many things went perfect but some fell flat. We love the brune landaise their signature bird. It’s amazing. We started with leeks vinaigrette and seared foie gras which were both beyond amazing. Then had a quarter bird and the lobster vola vent. The bird was again great but the lobster tasted less than fresh the sauce lacked flavor and the button mushrooms in it were ghetto. I was so disappointed this man makes amazing food, why would he even give this menu option over all the other great stuff. I lived with it but resented it. I would go back a thousand times armed with this knowledge. Finished with the giant milliefuille.

Chef/owner here had a three star in Strasbourg for many years and just wanted to prepare great food and not chase stars. He succeeded. This has become one of our favorite restaurants. Succulent chicken of every variety. Perfect salads including one with gizzards (chicken, of course). Try it!! Desserts out of sight. Can't decide whether our favorite is floating island or mille feuille. Why not have both?
