Advantages Incredible food, really lovely waiting staff, spacious (despite the pics) and comfortable.
Disadvantages Other than it being a bit far from the hotel we were staying at, nothing.
I was planning a day out for my lovely other half, as it was his birthday and we were going to be in New York on holiday. We love eating to put it simply, so I knew I was going to need to find somewhere great to have lunch. I was apprehensive as I wanted to go somewhere pretty special, and not being able to see these places before we went I was completely reliant on the reviews of strangers - some picky, some not so. So I really had my fingers crossed when we approached the building. I really shouldn't have worried at all as Amy Ruth's turned out to be one of the best restaurants I've ever eaten at. So, I'll describe the experience...
The menu is a la carte, and there is a weekly special. When we were there it was jerk chicken, which appealed to my fiance who chose it as his main dish. I chose the honey-dipped fried chicken, The Terry Rivers. We both chose white meat, rather than dark which is also available. The quality of meat was excellent, lovely and soft on the inside, perfectly cooked. Mine had a delicious crispy fried coating, which was dripping in the honey coating, completely gorgeous. The jerk seasoning was perfectly done also. We were in heaven! Not to mention the sides. Basically, you order a meat dish and you get two sides on the plate as well (in separate bowls). I chose macaroni cheese and green beans and my fiance had coleslaw and fries, but we shared the sides - they were too good to keep to ourselves! The macaroni cheese was without a doubt the best I've eaten and the green beans weren't too hard or too soft.
