Murray Hill’s ‘Best Wingers’ Expands with Delancey Street Outpost

174 Delancey St, June 2016

Best Wingers, the twenty-two-year-old Murray Hill institution, is coming to the Lower East Side. Its principals just signed a lease for 174 Delancey Street, in the shadows of the Williamsburg Bridge.

It’s a ten-year deal for the 1,000 square-foot space, and includes the basement. The chicken wings business chose 174 Delancey Street to better serve delivery customers from the West Village to Williamsburg proper.

Best Wingers was founded in 1995, and currently resides on Second Avenue between 38th and 39th Streets.

Fast food remains synonymous with this Delancey Street address. You’ll recall that this space previously hosted Empanadas, Son, which foundered in June 2016 after barely a year in business. The space had remained vacant until now.

No word yet on precise opening date.
