Dan and John's Wings now open on 1st Avenue

[Photo last evening by EVG contributor Steven]

Dan and John's Wings opened their doors last night for business at 135 First Ave. between St. Mark's Place and East Ninth Street.

The two have been selling their wings at Smorgasburg, the outdoor food festival on weekends in Williamsburg and now in Coney Island.

Per their website:

When two friends from Buffalo found themselves in Brooklyn without authentic Buffalo wings, they decided to make their own. Using recipes they learned working in Buffalo bars and pizzerias, Dan and John bring Buffalo's legendary flavor to Brooklyn, New York.

You can find their menu.

The storefront previously housed sandwich specialist JoeDough, which closed in February 2014 after two-plus years.

From 3:07 - not negativity, frustration! Such a long wait since I have not had decent wings since the demise of Nice Guy Eddies.

Remember when the neighborhood had restaurants, and not little kiosks selling one item: wings, dumplings, cookies, juice. It's like an 8 year-old's vision of fine dining.

I'm pretty sure there are still restaurants. I went to 2 this weekend.

7:12: Real wings in Buffalo do not have sauce per se, the spices are more kind of baked in - I hope these are like that!

Their wings are a little pricey, but I'll give them a shot.
