WINGMANS - press night - 8pm to 11.30pm. Chicken concept Wingmans is to launch its largest site to date in Soho this week. They are at 29-31 Old Compton Street, Soho, London W1. Wingmans is a Multi UK & EU Award winning street food concept specialising in freshly dipped gourmet chicken wings tossed in a homemade signature sauce of your choice, accompanied by homemade American style sides. You may have seen them at a festival. The first thing you notice before get to the restaurant is how totally buzzing the vibe is in Old Compton Street, as the road is closed to all traffic due to the coronavirus but all the restaurants have seating in the middle of the road. Wingmans is a great success story as they grew from their garage to open their first venue in Kilburn and now they are here in Soho. The Kilburn branch did a roaring home delivery trade during the lockdown period. Some of the tasty dishes we shared... Wings - 8 Buffalo with blue cheese and celery Wings - 8 Sweet n sour smokey BBQ 2 aptly named massive Straight Outta Old Compton (chicken burger with bacon and grilled cheese) Mac n cheese. 5 King Prawns Spicy Korean Cucumbers Fries A dessert each. They have their own bar so we had four different cocktails with The Old Fashioned being our fave. The small army of staff were great.
