There may be a lot of restaurants reopening at the moment - but we're also seeing brand new additions to the scene. One of them is Wingmans who, as you might guess from the name, specialise in gourmet chicken wings.
Until now, they've had a restaurant in Kilburn (launched after a series of pop-ups and residencies) and a hatch in Shoreditch but their new opening is a much bigger space in Soho (taking over the site that used to be Belgo). The restaurant is across two floors and has four private caves (with themed names like Yolko Ono, Henneth Paltrow & Atillah the Hen) if what you're really after is extreme social distancing.
As for the menu, expect chicken wings with many flavours (including some new and exclusive to the Soho branch) like Bang Coq (Spring Onion, Ginger, Pickle, Coriander, Kewpie, Crispy Onions & Toasted Sesame) and Matsu Katsu (Japanese Curry Sauce topped with Kewpie Mayo, Tonkatsu, Pickled Ginger, Mango, Spring Onion, Crispy Onion & Coriander). Yes, it seems no pun has gone unused.
There are also chicken burgers, including the Thigh Grade (Panko Fried Chicken Thigh, Ranch Sauce, American Cheese, Lettuce, Pink Onions, Gherkins, Brioche Bun) as well as sides like crispy tots with nduja butter, chimichurri, roasted garlic mayo and zaatar alongside truffle mac & cheese with beef short rib.
