Hey Pluck You! A Dry Grilled Chicken Sandwich For Lunch
That's it, right there...dry like a walk in the desert. And it wasn't so much what they put on the sandwich, or what they didn't, but the Chicken itself was completely robbed of any moisture altogether! Ok I am being a bit dramatic but at least I was trying to be a bit healthier in not ordering a deep fried hunk of bird that probably would have tasted 10 times better. Anyway the other day I was making my way thru the village when I happened upon Pluck U at 230 Thompson, between 3rd and Bleecker. So I stopped in because I was hungry and it looked interesting. Well it wasn't. I immediately regretted walking into the establishment because it didn't look or smell too appetizing on the inside, but I didn't want to be too judgemental. I'd certainly heard of or seen one of these places before with 5 locations in the city, so I assumed that it couldn't be that bad. I guess it wasn't really that bad, I mean it did have some flavor but they just simply overcooked the Chicken, plus there was way too much roll. They cheaped a bit on the bird which after eating it wasn't such a bad thing. I also ordered a small cup of Potato Salad thinking that I needed a little side or something. You are pretty much taking a chance ordering Potato Salad at certain joints, it all depends on whether the place makes it themselves or buys it pre-made. This was pre-made and it was gross, I should have known better. Overall not the best experience and a place I won't be visiting anytime soon. Sorry Pluck U.
