In this month’s installment of Sidecar’s Wing Thing, Luke Palladino and his chef de cuisine (and Sidecar alum) Ed Affinito have up with chicken wings stuffed with foie gras and chicken mousse. The wings are served with a chipotle barbecue sauce and they are on special starting this evening. And if you make it in tonight, you can say hi to Palladino and Affinito and tell them just how good they are (or more likely, how they just don’t compare to the Foobooz wings from a couple of months back. Sorry fellas, but nice try).
The wings are available while supplies last, but with foie gras and chicken mousse, these decadent wings won’t be around for long.

For Sidecar’s monthly “Wing Thing” collaboration, Brian Lofink and company have invited Greg Garbacz from Juniper Commons to come up with a wing. Garbacz has developed a Taco Wing, topped with tortilla puree, Guajillo sauce, queso fresco, diced red onion and micro cilantro. The wings will be on special throughout the week, and this evening Garbacz and his crew will be hanging out at the bar and eating wings.
Can these taco wings compare with the beer wort braised Foobooz wings that were featured last month? We doubt it, but then again, Garbacz is a professional and these do sound pretty great.

Rob Mitchell, owner of the Cow and the Curd has been working with Drexel University’s Food Lab to get his cheese curds out to the masses.
The Curd Caprese Salad, served with classic curds, basil aioli, aged balsamic vinegar, oven dried tomatoes and micro basil salad will be available for a limited time only. So get out there and get yours while you can.
The curd salad will also be available at the Sidecar Bar & Grille starting next Friday, April 24th.
I was lucky enough to try the "salad" yesterday with some friends and it was a hit. Just one word of advice, don't pop the whole curd in your mouth at once, bite halfway through and stretch that curd out. It just makes it even better.
