Like many city-dwelling New Yorkers, Atomic Wings' founder used to think chicken wings were something any restaurant could fry up. After heading upstate for college, though, he returned to the city of his birth with an appreciation for what a real Buffalo wing was. He felt he had discovered something that didn't exist anywhere else in what he calls "the city that has everything." So he started his own eatery and focused on making his new favorite food the way it was intended—with plenty of spice.
Atomic Wings ranks its spiciest flavors with increasingly threatening adjectives that range from Abusive to Nuclear. Of course, cooks offer plenty of other sauce options, as well, including soothingly sweet honey mustard and chipotle barbecue. They even slather their sauces on veggie wings, which are presumably harvested from some sort of flying carrot. A range of salads, burgers, and hearty sides rounds out the menu.
