You won’t find any blue-cheese dressing at this sparely designed house of wings. Owner Koji Bang, whose family operates a chicken wing shop in Japan, has grander plans for your poultry: Here it’s delicately fried, brushed with a garlicky sauce and sprinkled with sesame seeds. Bulk up your repast with potemochi: creamy-centered discs of crisp potatoes topped with a dollop of butter and house-made teriyaki sauce.
