I had wings twice, over the weekend. On Saturday, after our matinee, we went to St. Andrews, a Scottish pub in Times Square, and one of my go-to places for a decent meal with a good whiskey selection.
I didn't have any whiskey on Saturday, because it was the first day of a "no drinking week." And since I'm still trying to lose weight, we didn't finish all of the wings. But, in general, I think the wings at St. Andrews are pretty good. Classic buffalo flavor profile, offered in hot, medium or mild. Served with bleu cheese, rather than ranch, and kinda skimpy on the carrots and celery, considering the order was positively enormous.
The next day, we went to Talde in Park Slope for brunch. On the brunch, they've got a Korean version of chicken and waffles, and the chicken in the dish is a sort of Korean take on hot wings. Now, the wings in this picture don't look all that great--I'm not sure what accounts for the mottled color. But trust me--they are absolutely delicious. The flavor has the perfect amount of spice for me. They're spicy, but not unbearable. They're not particularly saucy, either. Compared to the wings at Dale Talde's other restaurant, Pork Slope, I have a strong preference for these.
