Where To Get a Chicken Sandwich on the Upper West Side

Ever since Popeye’s declared they had the best chicken sandwich, chicken sandwiches have been all the rage – it seems that for months, everyone has been busy standing in line at their local Popeyes, Chick-fil-a and other restaurants to get a delicious, crispy chicken sandwich – the perfect cold-weather comfort food.

On the Upper West Side, though, you don’t need to go too far to get a chicken sandwich, even on National Fried Chicken Sandwich Day which falls on Nov. 9. This year on this tasty holiday, head to one of these spots near your Sagamore apartment for an unbeatable chicken sandwich.

Jacob’s Pickles, located at 509 Amsterdam Ave, New York which is a five minute walk from your Sagamore apartment, is a Southern bar and eatery focused on fried chicken biscuit sandwiches, house-made pickles and beers.

Since the launch of Jacobs Pickles in 2011, the Pickles team has been committed to sharing their love for food and community. They’re proud to share their love for home-cooked food, artisanal beer, handmade cocktails, and of course, pickles, all in a revived landmark space where they can continue the tradition of timeless dining experiences on the Upper West Side.

5 Napkin Burger, located at 2315 Broadway, New York which is an eight minute walk from your Sagamore apartment, is a modern bistro chain serving gourmet meat and veggie burgers.

5 Napkin Burger strives to elevate the burger experience to its top shelf – because you and your burger deserve better. While other burger joints serve their burgers and chicken sandwiches in wax paper or in a cardboard box, 5 Napkin Burger holds itself to a higher standard. Sandwiches this great deserve to be served stacked high on a real plate, at a table with a proper setting, and with a great glass of wine or a craft beer, by a person who speaks the language of real service.
