Flip Bird is a rotisserie-inspired restaurant located inside Fort Greene’s new Gotham Market at The Ashland. Developed by John Stage, Flip Bird serves both fried chicken and spatchcocked rotisserie chicken. Stage uses the spatchcocking technique, which splits, then flattens the chickens, to allow for perfectly crisp skin when roasting on the restaurant’s rotisserie. When the spatchcocked chickens cook on the rotating rotisserie, it causes the birds to flip rather than spin, hence the name Flip Bird. For both its fried and rotisserie chickens, the restaurant uses antibiotic-free Amish chickens, humanely raised in Pennsylvania, seasoned with flavors and spices from Northern Africa and Southern Spain. In addition to chickens, Flip Bird’s menu features chicken sandwiches, both fried or pulled, on homemade baguettes, seasonal salads and sides, as well as hand-cut fries cooked in the rotisserie.
