Summer is road-trip season, so we're taking a culinary tour of America. But because Portland is a city of immigrants from other states, we don't have to leave town to do it. We're traveling to 50 Portland restaurants to try one distinctive food from each state. Our 50 Plates tour continues with Buffalo wings from New York, which joined the union on July 26, 1788.
The state: New York, America's 27th largest state by area and third largest by population. New York City, the state's largest city, is the second largest and third most diverse city in North America. All rather unimpressive, I know, however, from New York City's central "Manhattan" neighborhood it's a quick six hour drive to Buffalo, where Buffalo wings were invented. And from Buffalo, it's only another two hours to Toronto, where you can get some culture.
