Kettle Black is a chill wing spot in Bay Ridge, closer to the commercial area, so the place can get pretty lively. The service is quick, courteous and accommodating. There even contains an opening for a dance floor. You can order a huge plate of wings with several difference sauces, or just some drinks, which are always well made and good value. Shrimp sandwich special could be a delicious surprise with horseradish sauce. Convenient staff and little waiting for a spot. The food always comes out quick, so come hungry. It’s a sports bar that’s great for meeting up for a Rangers game, but people stay and come back again and again for some of the best wings in New York City, right here in Brooklyn.
