There's no denying the fact that chicken wings are a favorite when it comes to American cuisine, but if you consider yourself a true wing connoisseur, visit Scarsdale’s Candlelight Inn, which claims to offer the “best chicken wings in Westchester.”
Located at 519 Central Park Avenue, Candlelight Inn’s chefs have prided themselves on offering high-quality American fare, chicken dishes and other popular pub-style eats since the eatery’s inception in 1955.
What sets Candlelight Inn’s wings apart from others is that they’re available as full-sized pieces with the wing and leg attached. This unique difference adds a new level of juiciness and crispiness that’s hard to find anywhere else.
As for wing sauces, guests have plenty of flavorful options, including bourbon honey BBQ, garlic parm, teriyaki and more.
In addition to hot and juicy wings, Candlelight Inn also serves fresh burgers, salads, sandwiches, wraps, ribs, fish, hot specialties and countless finger foods.
The eatery’s massive menu also includes several varieties of freshly baked pizza and plenty of vegetarian options.
Don’t forget to pair your meal with one of Candlelight Inn’s craft beers or signature cocktails like the frozen mudslide. Other beverage options like soda, juice and iced tea are also available.
Candlelight Inn also serves Haagen Dazs ice cream, milkshakes and other dessert specials, which are available on a rotating basis.
It’s no surprise that Candlelight Inn’s massive selection of menu items and one-of-a-kind wings have earned it a reputation as a Westchester staple, resulting in a four-star rating on Yelp and a near-perfect 4.8/5 stars on Facebook. Guests are quick to rave over the eatery’s wings and other simple yet classic bar/pub fare.
“Great experience! Hot teriyaki wings were perfection. Crispy and perfectly sauced. Love them! Broccoli cheese poppers are always crispy and creamy…Delicious! Frozen mudslides were a hit. Love everything about this place! A great neighborhood gem. Food never disappoints!” writes Amy P. in a June 10 Yelp review.
One small note of caution: the eatery accepts cash only. Candlelight Inn is open Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 a.m. and Sunday from 12 p.m. to 3 a.m. For more information, visit the restaurant’s Facebook and Yelp pages.
