Who doesn't love a tasty chicken wing? This week it's time to take flight because National Chicken Wing Day is July 29th an Boston has an array of delectable ones waiting to be tasted!
You can count on Chef Brian Poe of Estelle's in the South End to serve it up hot and these wings are no exception - Hot as Hell Wings are tossed in "Wicked hot BBQ sauce," says Chef Poe. To calm down your mouth, there's a buttermilk ranch dip.
Or stake out one of the newest options in town - CRUSH, best known for excellent pizza and an amazing array of gelatos, but also, these Italian style fire grilled chicken wings marinated in Limoncello, garlic, and rosemary then grilled and served with fresh baked focaccia.
Another newcomer, Brass Union in Somerville's Union Square, serves up its wings with black pepper batter, tomato marmalade, buttermilk dressing.
Over in the Seaport, TAMO Bar in the Seaport Hotel serves wings that could be from the Old South - Bourbon Honey Chicken Wings glazed with honey made by its very own bees (they live on the rooftop) and Angel's Envy bourbon (available only in the summer when the bees are working).
Skyboxx 109 GastroSports at 319 Speen St. in Natick lets you have your wings bone-in or as boneless tenders with your choice of classic Buffalo, Thai peanut, honey mustard, bourbon glaze, teriyaki, or garlic parmesan.
Poe's Kitchen at The Rattlesnake delivers the heat expected in its Chiptole Wings with smoked jalapeño rubbed wings, celery, poblano & blue cheese sauce. It's that sneaky little poblano pepper that'll get you every time.
Haru at the Prudential Center serves its Teriyaki Wings and Spicy Garlic Wings in the bar during Happy Hour daily from 3 p.m. to 7 and later, from 10 p.m. to closing.
So celebrate the happy day and gobble up those wings - you'll be flying happy.
