It’s a simple thing but rotisserie chicken done well is hard to beat. Cocotte is a mini group of London neighbourhood restaurants that does it very well indeed. Their free-range French chickens are marinated for 24 hours in a delicious blend of herbs before heading to the spit. You can order a quarter, half, or whole bird along with fresh salads and homely sides like ratatouille and mash potato. If you’re in for brunch you might prefer your chicken basted with sweet chili and served with freshly baked croissant waffles.
