While there’s no shortage of restaurants specializing in chicken wings, Sticky’s Finger Joint is one of the few that focuses exclusively on the art of the chicken finger. Striving to create “the greatest chicken fingers in the world,” this Greenwich Village eatery is a great spot for a casual meal with friends, a place where you can eat with your hands while wearing your least fancy t-shirt and nobody will bat an eyelid. The dishes here are made for sharing, so feel free to eat your way across the menu. The options are as delicious as they are creative, with everything from classic New York-style fingers, to chicken parm-inspired “Bada Bings” with Italian Panko breading, to salted caramel fingers that split the difference between dinner and dessert. Work on your dipping motion as you coat these succulent morsels of fresh, antibiotic- and hormone-free chicken with one of 15 sauces, including spicy-cool sriracha ranch and “sunny mustard” made with golden honey. You’ll soon notice that everyone has their own unique chicken-dipping style that matches their personality, from the skinny-dippers to the hardcore dunkers. Pair your poultry feast with an order of truffle fries and a Mexican Coke and you’ve got the perfect start to a memorable evening—or the perfect end, since it’s open late on weekends.
