Buffalo Wing TrailBuffalo, N.Y. — Visit Buffalo Niagara, the official destination marketing organization for Buffalo and Erie County, New York, unveiled the Buffalo Wing Trail at a press event this morning. Held at the Anchor Bar – the birthplace of the Buffalo Wing – the event revealed the “delicious dozen” restaurants that comprise America’s newest food trail.

Wings have been a staple of Buffalo’s culinary scene since 1964 when Anchor Bar owner Teressa Bellissimo took the wings originally intended for a soup, fried them, tossed them in hot sauce and served them to her son and his friends – delighting the late diners and changing the course of American food history.
