With news outlets buzzing about KFC’s decision to ditch their “finger lickin’ good” slogan amid the pandemic, it’s important to note that the best chicken on the East End, can’t be found at an international chain restaurant—it’s found at the local eateries that amaze summer visitors and locals with flavorful recipes and unique takes on classics, such as chicken wings, year after year. This Takeout Tuesday, order yourself the Best of the Best wings in the Hamptons and on North Fork.
