You’d think a place that has been pouring drinks for more than 120 years would know a thing or two about how to please. And you’d be right. Opened in 1892 (yes, it even stayed open during Prohibition), this Flatiron dive delivers with refreshing pints, a rollicking post-work (and post-post-work) crowd and a charming old-timey vibe, with distressed mirrors, high tin ceilings and a mahogany bar. All that imbibing will help you work up an appetite, and the peppery Buffalo wings are the perfect remedy. Equal parts tangy and buttery, the crispy-on-the-outside, meaty-on-the-inside wings are so addictive you’ll be licking your plate clean.
We take our bar food and snacks very seriously, especially the best wings in NYC. In a city where there’s no shortage of chicken joints (see: the best fried chicken, the best chicken and waffles, etc.), it takes a lot to make one stand out. To help, we’ve assembled the best wings, both buffalo and beyond, that satisfy cravings on game day or any day.
