To Gio
Takeout Chicken from the Antico Guys

Gio's Chicken AmalfitanoYou’re going to have to trust us on this one.

Because, well... we’re sending you to an old cash depository building in an alley.

The kind with knife-wielding Italian gentlemen and quick cash transactions.

Stay with us, though.

Because what happens next is chicken. Just... so much magnificent chicken.

Make a run for Gio’s Chicken Amalfitano, a new takeout spot from the Antico guys for hot lemon chicken and homemade ziti of the take-it-home-and-see-Jesus variety, opening tomorrow night in West Midtown.

So, you know how the Antico empire plans on taking over the world/turning that underutilized strip on Hemphill Avenue into a full-on Italian village... well, this is their next step in doing that. A simple pickup spot for Amalfi Coast–inspired chicken. There’s a takeout counter to your left. A few industrial-style lamps and tables to your right. No big deal, really.

Except for all that chicken. That’s a big deal. It’s the kind that’s doused in red wine and piccante peppers. The kind that makes beautiful music with a quart of chicken soup and a cannoli. You can get everything in family-size portions, too. So if you have a family, that’s some really great news.

Oh, and here’s the thing. They open at 5pm and they’ll only prep 100 chickens a night. So, you know, chop-chop.

That means “Don’t be the 101st person” in Italian.
