This week marks the soft opening of Rotisseur, a cafe/takeout on 21st Street between Chestnut and Sansom Streets.

For now, lifelong pals Dean Kitagawa and Aaron Matzkin are serving rotisserie chicken (and sides) in their 23-seater in a former dress boutique (215-496-9494).

A Friend of The Insider reports: "Had a dark meat quarter with sides of fried kale seasoned with garlic and an excellent red potato salad with celery and onions. Regular price is $6.25. This week they're offering a 15% discount." A half-chicken is $8, a whole is $14. Meal deals are available, too, such as a half-chicken and two sides for $10.

Kitagawa says they're opening about 5 or 5:30 p.m. daily this week and next week, and stay open till they're sold out.

The menu will be expanded to additional rotisserie proteins.
