Hot Wings

The Good Fork • Brooklyn, NY

The wonderfully spicy chicken wings that husband-and-wife owners Ben Schneider and Sohui Kim serve at their intimate, Asian-inflected restaurant are made with the popular Thai chile sauce Sriracha in place of the classic Frank's Red Hot sauce; the soothing accompaniment is a mix of sour cream spiked with rice vinegar.
