Hours:TUESDAY12:00PM to 11:00PM

We love the chicken wing here at The Infatuation, and we're always on the hunt for a satisfying pile of good ones. Unfortunately, there isn't much saucy satisfaction to be had in this city. Most wings around here suck worse than an episode of Top Chef Texas. There are some serviceable options here and there, most of which are of the BBQ or Asian variety, but when it comes to the Buffalo stuff, pickins are slim. The general consensus seems to be that Atomic Wings is the best in town. Atomic Wings? Really? This is what happens when people listen to people on Yelp.

Maybe our problem is that we haven't been willing enough to travel for a delicious wing discovery. We had heard for a while that Bonnie's Grill in Park Slope was home to some of the best Buffalo style wings around. So why not hop on the train for a taste test? Probably because Park Slope and Scarsdale are equidistant (in our head) and The Candlelight Inn is our favorite wing spot on earth. If we're making moves like that, we're going for the good stuff. But we took the trip to Bonnies nonetheless, and sure enough - we weren't blown away. This is a great neighborhood spot with a full menu of divey bar food classics, but we wouldn't risking getting run over by some runaway twins in a double Bugaboo just for an order of wings. However, you can go ahead and raise this rating up by one point if you live in the area and just need a place for a beer, a burger, and a few precious moments away from Elmo. We feel you.

Food Rundown

Buffalo Wings


Bonnie's wings are similar to those you'll find at sports bars around the country, which isn't a bad a thing at all. What I'm getting at is that they taste like you've had them before. The wings are fried until crispy on the outside, and then tossed in a standard Frank's Red Hot sauce. There was a nice amount of meat on the bones, and we didn't have one sorry looking straggler amongst our batch. I'll reiterate, we'd eat these all day, we're just not looking to go stroller dodging in far off Brooklyn neighborhoods to do so.

Spiced Black Angus Sirloin Burger


We liked the burger a lot. It was kind of refreshing to not have a special Pat Lafrieda blend and just eat a solid, standard beef patty on a bun with a bunch of fixins on top. In this case, our fixins were pickles, jalapeños, tomato, and onion. The burger is also a nice size, and the fries are skinny and crispy. Just like we like them.

Looking for a good place to post up for a night of game watching, beer drinking, and good grubbing? Reservoir is the place to do it. Underrated bar food.

Walker’s

Walker’s is a Tribeca landmark – a prime example of a Classic NYC Establishment, and a low key spot that attracts an older crowd who enjoy a good burger and some Sports on TV.
