The best wings in New York State aren’t in Buffalo. They’re actually just a quick 40-minute ride from Manhattan at The Candlelight Inn, an unassuming dive bar in Scarsdale, New York. They serve legendary wings that are plump, meaty, and crisp. The standard sauce is the perfect combination of butter and Frank’s Red Hot, but the proper order is the hot teriyaki wings “extra wet, extra sloppy.” Candlelight is open until 2am, which makes it an all-time late-night establishment—just know it’s cash-only, they don’t take reservations, and if you go at prime time, be prepared to wait.
