If you’ve had roast chicken on the brain ever since Lidia Bastianich claimed she’d have it for her last meal, take note of a new two-person, three-course prix fixe now available at her restaurant, Felidia. The $48-per-person feast offers the choice of a roast chicken for two (pictured here), and it seems like a decent deal, since it includes a bottle of Bastianich wine. One hitch: It’s only available on weekdays, from 4:30 p.m. to 6:15 p.m., or after 9 p.m. The full menu follows.
