The third Rhode Island Food Fights event of 2013, the Lord of the Wings, was held this past Sunday, October 20th at Fête in Providence. Seven area restaurants specializing in chicken wings competed to see who had the best, according to a panel of three culinary judges (which included this writer), along with competing for the People’s Choice. Three awards, created by Ahlers Designs, were given out and for the second time at a RI Food Fights event there was a tie.
According to judges Chef Andrew Shotts of Garrison Confections, Shawna Lawton of Whole Foods Market and David Dadekian of Eat Drink RI, first place went to Ladder 133 Sports Bar & Grill for their House BBQ Wings. Second place went to South Street Café in Providence for their Lemon Pepper Wings. Underscoring the judges’ choices, People’s Choice was a tie between Ladder 133 and South Street Café. Other competitors included, Boneheads Wings Bar, Trinity Brewhouse, Wes’ Rib House and Wings Over Providence. Congratulations to both of the winners.
