Celebrate National Fried Chicken Day in the Roosevelt Island Area on July 6

July 5, 2020

Decadent cocktails, ice cream sundaes, burgers and fries… in the summertime, there’s nothing like our favorite foods to hit the spot while we’re lounging by the beach or the pool. Which is exactly why it’s the perfect time for a drool-worthy comfort food holiday – National Fried Chicken Day on July 6!

If some fried chicken sounds like just what the doctor ordered, indulge in this delicious treat when the holiday comes around at one of our many local eateries specializing in the favorite.

Atomic Wings, located at 1495 1st Avenue, New York which is 14 minutes from your Octagon apartment, is a counter-serve chain dishing up chicken wings with signature sauces, as well as wraps and salads.

Atomic Wings was originally conceived in 1981 by Adam Lippin, who couldn’t find the hot, crispy wings that he savored during his college years in Buffalo. So, he spent several years perfecting the process, recipe and art behind the perfect chicken wing, and in 1989 he was able to open the first Atomic Wings location in New York City. Today, Atomic Wings serves antibiotic-free, hormone-free and all-natural wings in over 14 proprietary sauces, most of which are gluten-free. 

Drunken Chicken Astoria, located at 25-30 Broadway, Astoria which is 10 minutes from your Octagon apartment, is a casual chain serving cooked-to-order Korean fried chicken, plus other traditional eats.

Drunken Chicken Astoria specializes in double fried chicken with signature sauces, including their Korean-influenced flavors of soy garlic (soybeans and garlic) and Korean sweet chili (a tomato base inspired by the power of fiery Korean peppers).
