Rotisserie-Chicken-Toronto-Cafe-Boulud

Rotisserie chicken at Café Boulud

For a long time in Toronto, preferred preparations of poultry have tended toward the liberally spiced and lovingly fried. Lately, however, the classic rotisserie chicken has begun to make a comeback.

1 Chef David Adjey was arguably first among his peers to crow anew about birds—his The Chickery opened in 2012 and will soon spawn a number of franchises. 130 Spadina Ave., 647-347-2222; thechickery.com

2 Smaller in scale but similarly fast-casual is Flock, which offers chicken in whole, half or leg-or-breast portions, or pulled on a loaded sandwich. (To accompany your chicken, Chef Cory Vitiello’s spot also serves a quartet of fresh, inventive salads.) 330 Adelaide St. W., 647-483-5625; eatflock.ca

3 Le poulet is also elevated at Café Boulud, where imported rotisseries cook free-range Chantecler hens. Four Seasons Hotel, 60 Yorkville Ave., 416-964-0411; cafeboulud.com
