Thanksgiving is all about turkey. Christmas dinner? You’re eating ham. Another long-held American tradition? The Super Bowl party and copious amounts of chicken wings. Buckets full. The you-can-never-get-enough barroom staple is, by far, the most important Super Bowl Sunday party menu item.
Well hang on to your queso and seven-layer dip, because Micah Wexler and Michael Kassar, the kings of Jewish soul food over at Wexler’s Deli (DTLA – Grand Central Market/Santa Monica) are taking their years of expertise smoking fish and pastrami in-house and expanding their vision to include … chicken wings. First. Time. Ever. They are making pastrami-spiced, slow smoked, free-range chicken wings in time for your get-together the day of the Super Bowl. The little gems also come with house-made Buffalo and Ranch and will set you back $12 for a dozen (peanuts).
Want some? You can place your order before game day (Feb. 5) by calling 424.744.8671 ext. 1 or by emailing them at [email protected]. They are also offering good-looking braised brisket sandwiches for game day, but we didn’t make it past wings. Pastrami-spiced wings. Slow smoked. It’s all too much goodness.
