Wing It, the chicken wing specialists, which opened in Tallaght in 2014, and has also been available at Eatyard for the past two years, will open their first city centre site on George's Street at 5pm today. The two floor, 60 seater site, which was previously home to Camera Exchange, has taken them three years to find, and features art work from local artists on the walls.
The menu features three types of wings - regular, boneless and even vegan (made from wheat protein by Moodley Manor) with 16 different flavours, including medium and spicy buffalo, Teeling whiskey BBQ and mango habanero. They also do burgers, 'loaded fries' and nachos.
Wing It was started after founders Sebastian Conway and Tim Cole were travelling in the States and came back thinking that Dublin was missing a chicken wing specialist. They started testing various cooking methods and flavours at food markets and festivals, before settling on recipes for their regular and boneless wings. Their buffalo wings were crowned winners at Bray's Wings Food Fest in 2017, and taking a pitch at Eatyard allowed them to dip a toe in the city centre market and build up a following there before opening their own central space.
Wing It on George's Street opens at 5pm today, and will be open from 12pm daily from tomorrow onwards. They'll also be available again from Eatyard when it reopens in mid-February.
