Best Wings New York 2013 - Distilled
We're usually purists when it comes to our hot wings, and we often scoff at chefs who think they can best Frank's Red Hot plus butter. But the poultry at Distilled wiped the smirks right off of our faces. These wings are served hot and juicy, the bird encased in a crackly shell and glazed with an addictive sauce that's equal parts sweet and spicy. They're sided with a cup of Point Reyes blue cheese dressing, an upmarket take on hot wings' usual accompaniment. We give the kitchen props—because these fancy wings really fly.
