Best Chicken Wings

EdgeWild Restaurant & Winery

Staff Pick

An urban winery in the middle of Chesterfield Valley may not be where you'd expect to find the town's best wings. But tucked amid the chardonnay scallops and tuna poke, EdgeWild's dry-rubbed beauties stand as an example of how great food can come from unexpected places. The award-winning wings (they took the crown at the 2013 UCP Wing Ding) are triple-rubbed: dry rubbed, smoked, rubbed again, fried and finished with a final coating. The result is a sauce-free masterpiece — a mingling of brown-sugar sweetness and a deep, savory Worcestershire punch. There's a little bit of heat to please the spice lovers, but not so much as to scare off those who love a milder version. And the chicken itself? Plump, juicy and falling off the bone. Dig into these delectable treats and you might think you've stepped into a smokehouse. 550 Chesterfield Center, Chesterfield, 63017. 636-532-0550, www.edgewildwinery.com.
