Sbraga a 440 South Broad Street must have enjoyed feeding wing lovers during the PIFA Festival this weekend as the restaurant is again encouraging people to come in and check out the restaurant differently from dinner.

This week, Monday through Wednesday, the Sbraga bar will be offering specials between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. Among the specials, Vadouvan chicken wings. And when chef Kevin Sbraga does anything with chicken (we’ve called him the chicken whisperer in the past), we encourage all to take notice.

COOK’s Lily Cope Is Showing Off Her Wing Prowess Tonight

Nothing says wing connoisseur like a fur.

Nothing says wing connoisseur like a fur.

Lily Cope, executive director of COOK is trying to prove she’s picked up a thing or two from the chefs that have held classes at the Rittenhouse Square presentation kitchen. Tonight the wings she has designed will be served at Sidecar Bar & Grille starting at 5 p.m. The wings feature special breaded ranch and dill pickle brined wings served with ranch dressing, Crystal’s hot butter sauce and celery ribbon salad.

I’ll admit that sounds pretty good, but can it really be better than the Foobooz Wings that have served as the basis of Kraftwork’s wings? I doubt it.

So come on down and join Cope as she hangs out for wings, booze, fun and a little smack talk from yours truly.

Laurel’s Nick Elmi Trying His Hand at Wings

elmi-coffee-wings-400Tonight, Nick Elmi of Laurel on East Passyunk is creating wings for Sidecar Bar and Grille’s monthly “Wing Thing.” Elmi, who clearly needs help in the kitchen, is bringing in his coffee friend, Chris Miller, lead roaster of La Colombe, who will be helping to make La Colombe Coffee Cured Wings with Eddie’s habanero squash sauce and benne seeds.

The wings will try and take down my wing creation that by all accounts (or at least my account) are the best wings ever. But the Top Chef winner probably has a shot at second best; with coffee and a habanero sauce, at least Tom Colicchio won’t be able to complain they’re under-seasoned.

Elmi and Miller will be at the Sidecar starting at 5 p.m. and the wings will be on the menu for the rest of the week.

Drexel’s Verde Hot Chicken Wings at Sidecar Bar

It’s a “Wing Thing” returns to the Sidecar tonight. The 22nd and Christian Street bar is debuting Drexel Food Lab Manager Ally Zeitz’s Verde Hot Chicken wings and they sound pretty great.

The wings are inspired by the flavors of salsa verde and Nashville’s hot chicken. The wings are brined in seasoned buttermilk, lightly floured, then dipped in hot oil made from green jalapeno and duck fat. The wings are then served with pomegranate yogurt and pickled onions.

The wings go on sale at 5 p.m. and will be there for one night only.

This Week At Sidecar: BBQ Wings And Boozy Beers

Wing Thing Sidecar

Tonight, “Wing Thing” is back at Sidecar. The Chef: Adan Trinidad of Jose and Sancho Pistolas. His wings: Black Garlic Mole Negro BBQ Wings with a Jasper Hill Blue Cheese Crema.

Sure that sounds pretty good, but did you hear about our wing collaboration with Sidecar a couple months back? Chef Trinidad’s got some big shoes to fill if we do say so ourselves.

The wings will be offered until they sell out, usually in four or five days.

Also on tap at Sidecar: really strong beers. Join them tomorrow, Wednesday, July 15th for High Gravity Night. The lineup looks like it could do some serious damage.

Foie Gras Wings at Sidecar

foie-gras-chicken-wing-400

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.
