The whole rotisserie chicken—you know, in the plastic container—might have become the go-to quick family meal of our time. But savvy Summerliners know to skip the grocery-store version and hit Daily Kitchen, where $35 gets you a juicy, free-range, all-natural Mary’s Chicken roasted to perfection, plus a classic Caesar salad and two sides that can be curried cauliflower with dates and almonds or Brussels with lemon, shallots and pistachios.
Healthy, delicious takeout is a big part of Daily Kitchen’s biz, but a recent menu revamp adds dishes with flavors both familiar and surprising—a spicy steak banh mi sandwich ($11), a ridiculous chicken salad sandwich, a Niçoise salad with great slabs of albacore, and frozen Greek yogurt parfaits for dessert or breakfast. As at its Eastern Avenue location, which has a different menu tailored to its neighborhood, this is feel-good food that doesn’t sacrifice deliciousness.
