Looks like chicken wings are the new bagels at 422 Haight!
Yes, the former home of Roland’s Bakery will soon be getting new life as a chicken wing and fries joint.
The new venture, tentatively dubbed Wing Wings, is the work of chef Chrisian Ciscle, whose resumé includes SOMA’s chicken-and-waffle joint Little Skillet, Divisadero diner Blue Jay Cafe, and Fillmore sandwich shop Big Sherm’s (which later turned into Estela’s).
The menu will include fried chicken wings and fresh-cut fries, as well as a variety of sauces and specials. Ciscle tells us the space will probably have a few tables for dine-in, but will primarily focus on take-out and delivery to local businesses and residents.
He has also chosen not to pursue a liquor license, noting that folks have plenty of nearby bar options if they want a drink with their wings.
Ciscle says the shop will initially be open 6 days a week for lunch and dinner, and late night on weekends. He’s still working on the space and getting permits, so isn’t sure of an opening date, but says 2-3 months is the goal.
We’ll keep you posted!
