La Rotisserie Du Coin to Open in Forest Hills on Friday, January 24
January 24 @ 11:00 am - February 7 @ 10:00 pm
La Rotisserie Du Coin, a new French traditional rotisserie chicken concept will open its doors in Forest Hills on Friday, January 24. Husband and wife team, Jimmy and Sonia Arouche opened the vintage style bistro together when they saw the need for a fast-casual restaurant that uses high quality authentic ingredients. The restaurant has a strong focus on rotisserie chicken and all recipes are natural, free range, antibiotic and hormone free. The ingredients are self-selected and imported directly from France. Eddie Fahmy of a2z Restaurant Consulting is the consultant. The small eat-in eatery will have 19 seats and take-out will be available.
The rotisserie is a traditional French method of roasting meat and is part of the culinary tradition in France. The chicken is smothered with butter and a mix of spices. It is then skewered on a turning spit and cooked for one hour. This method leaves the meat succulent and skin a crispy golden brown.
The interior of the restaurant was designed by Sonia who was inspired after a trip to Pennsylvania where she hand-selected the wood used to design the restaurant. Sonia met with a local craftsman and with some guidance, she picked a 125-year-old Spruce Tree. The wood from the tree was used to make the solid hardwood which is featured at the tables, bar tops and benches found in the restaurant.
“Jimmy and I decided to open La Rotisserie du Coin, when we realized we weren’t able find any rotisserie chicken that we used to find on every corner back home in France. We wanted to bring the concept, with the same recipes and tastes to our local neighborhood, with an authentic Parisian style and décor. Our goal is for our customers to take a trip to France when they walk in our doors and we will accomplish this through the design of the restaurant and taste of our delicious authentic and flavorful cuisine!” – Restaurant Owner and Designer, Sonia Arouche
