Description

The Anchor Bar is a bar and restaurant in Buffalo, New York, located north of Downtown Buffalo at the intersection of Main and North Streets. The restaurant was initially established in 1935. The bar is most famous for being the birthplace of spicy chicken wings known outside the Buffalo area as Buffalo wings.Buffalo wingsThe bar's association with Buffalo wings originates in the 1960s. Then-owner Teressa Bellissimo is credited with the creation of the dish when she deep-fried some wings and covered them in Frank's RedHot hot sauce and butter. Chicken wings were previously used for soup or thrown away. She served them with blue cheese dip as hors d'oeuvres at the bar. They were initially offered for free. Anchor Bar sauces are sold in the United States at Tops Friendly Markets, and in Canada at Sobey's and Metro stores.In 2007, Iron Chef and Food Network personality Bobby Flay appeared at the Anchor Bar for a Buffalo wing "throwdown" with the self-proclaimed "Wing King", Drew Cerza. On the August 8, 2008 episode of Primal Grill with Steven Raichlen on PBS, Raichlen said that "the Buffalo wing was born at the Anchor Bar in Buffalo, New York in 1964."
