NOLA Gives you Wings

Nina Feldman and crew hit up some top Chicken Wing spots in town, and find them in places beyond the traditional wingeries.

While New Orleans is famous for an exhaustive list of culinary delights, a group of adventurous foodies wonders why chicken wings, the classic game-day favorites, don't often make the cut.

NolaVie founders Renee Peck and Sharon Litwin join WWNO producer Laine Kaplan-Levenson and reporter Nina Feldman as they taste their way through the Crescent City wing scene. What they find may come as no surprise: while New Orleans puts gumbo, crawfish and other favorites on the pedestal they deserve, behind the scenes this finger-lickin' snack is done with local expertise.
