Best Wings Minneapolis 2013 - Icehouse
The first bite catches you off guard: Whoa, these are not your average chicken wings. We've become accustomed to the above-average bar snacks at Icehouse, but the wings are on another level. Sure, the burger is good, and they make a serious French fry, but the wings are just downright addictive. First, the chicken appendages are slowly cooked confit, in a warm fat bath, rendering the meat extra tender. Then they are fried until the skin is shatter-crisp. After that, they are tossed with a hellfire take on the familiar Buffalo sauce. It tastes at once familiar and utterly new: spicy, tart, sweet, and toasty. Paired with cool blue cheese crumbles, these are chicken wings for the ages.
