Delaney chicken

Delaney Chicken is a contemporary quick-service restaurant serving mouthwatering Southern-style, batter-dipped fried chicken sandwiches and house-made drinks. It is the second restaurant and brand created by Daniel Delaney, a James Beard Award nominated restaurateur with a deep-seated love for all things Southern. The restaurant’s first location opened in the Summer of 2015, just outside of Grand Central Terminal in New York City.
Our top seller is the Original Chicken Sandwich, made with all-natural fried chicken, tangy duke’s mayo from North Carolina, homemade pickles and crystal brand hot sauce.

Daniel Delaney

Daniel Delaney is a James Beard Award nominated restaurateur with a serious love for all things Southern, despite having grown up North of the Mason-Dixon, in New Jersey. From a young age, Dan was interested in entrepreneurship, launching everything from dog walking services to
lemonade stands. His first restaurant, Delaney Barbecue, was widely considered to be one of the best BBQ joints in the United States, and it continually ranked in the top five for BBQ in New York by the likes of the NYTimes, Time Out NY, Zagat, and New York Magazine. His second venture, Delaney Chicken, is also a fan favorite, frequently written about by Eater and the NYTimes, and most importantly, it’s achieved a cult following from just about everyone that takes a bite. Together, the restaurants earned him a spot on Zagat’s 30 under 30.
