If you are guessing it's pizza, guess again!


Whenever you think 'New York' and 'Signature Food' I am sure all of our great pizza places come to mind. Or maybe it is the legendary 'garbage plate' that you think of as uniquely New York. Or, maybe it is the potato chip - invented in Saratoga Springs!


BOTH of those would be great guesses for the Food Network's MUST TRY New York food, but it is another New York original that takes home the honor.

What Is NY's Must-Try Food According to Food Network?

For the experts at Food Network, Buffalo Wings are the ultimate must-try food in New York State. Here is what they had to say about the Buffalo creation:

There’s seemingly no such thing as a bad wing in Buffalo...It started almost by accident as an experiment, on March 4, 1964. Anchor Bar co-founder Teressa Bellissimo’s son Dominic asked his mother to whip up a snack for his intoxicated friends late one night while he was tending bar. Teressa deep-fried the wings that were normally used as the base for stock, then flavored them with a secret sauce.

You could say of all of our signature foods, Buffalo Wings is the one dish with the deepest local roots that was truly inspired and created in the Empire State. And in New York,, have you ever met a wing you didn't love?  They are ALL good!

The 9 Best Fried Chicken Sandwiches in the Capital Region, Ranked!

Ever since Chic-Fil-A added two more restaurants in the Capital Region a few weeks back, there's been a lot of "clucking" in our area about who has the "best-tasting" chicken sandwich.

Recently, we posted the question on our various social media platforms, and the results were pretty interesting.

For the purpose of our survey, we didn't care if it was made at a local mom-and-pop style pub, tavern, or restaurant or if it was made by a multi-billion dollar national chain.

If Capital Region residents knew of a place that builds a delicious, golden-fried chicken sandwich, we wanted to hear about it.
