Best Wings in the City

For some reason great wings seem to be in short supply in NYC, where do I need to go to get some great ones.

      Any chance there's anything a little further downtown? Or in Brooklyn even?

        For Brooklyn, you should ask on the Outer Boroughs board.

        I had fantastic wings at a place with indoor and outside seating on Greenwich Ave. I hope someone will remember the name of the place. Indoors was small with a bar. I'm pretty sure it was not Fiddlesticks.

          Bone Lick BBQ maybe? Across 7th Ave next to Two Boots? That's the only place I can think of that has outdoor seating and Buffalo Wings on Greenwich. I've not had their wings but their other stuff started off only slightly better than average and has been going downhill lately.

            I don't think it was a BBQ place. And we had a variety of wings, none of them Buffalo style. Still remember the garlic parmesan ones as special standouts.

              Doh! Wogies! I forgot they had outdoor seating.

                Yes!!! Thanks so much--I've been trying to remember the name for ages.

                Memorably great wings.

          Croxley's Ale House in the East Village has a $0.10 or $0.20 wing night several times a week. they're great when they're good and terrible when not. better when they're busy.

                Dinosaur BBQ has good wings. The chipotle wings at Wildwood are excellent (though I'm not a fan of their bbq).
