Anchor Bar wings neither foul nor fair

I can­not turn down an oppor­tu­nity to sleuth the ori­gin of a famous food.

Such sleuthing has taken me to for­eign lands — Bakewell Tart in the U.K.‘s Peak Dis­trict, pud­din’ ‘n’ souse on the windy side of Bar­ba­dos and the Wal­dorf Salad at Manhattan’s hotel by the same name being three exam­ples. On home turf, I’ve cruised the high­ways and byways in my search for the best but­ter tart. And, most recently, I shuf­fled off to Buf­falo for chicken wings at the Anchor Bar where this hugely pop­u­lar bar snack, says the lore, orig­i­nated.
