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.
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
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).
