The Scoop: Former Mia Rosa chef de cuisine ventures into chicken wings

Tuesday, December 7th, 2010

120610_stlwingsWhen Mia Rosa shuttered in August, Bobby Tessler, the chef de cuisine at the Italian eatery in The Grove, decided it was time to open his own place. Although Tessler has accumulated 15 years of cheffing experience, including time in the kitchens at the now defunct Once Upon a Vine, The Wild Flower in the Central West End and Remy’s Kitchen and Wine Bar in Clayton, he didn’t want to operate a full-service, upscale restaurant. Rather, he decided to focus on one of his favorite comfort foods: chicken wings. Thus, St. Louis Wing Co. was born.

When the chicken wing joint opens at 9816 Manchester Road in Rock Hill, diners will get a taste of wings with creative flavors like coconut curry, kalamata olive and feta, spicy jalapeño and sesame ginger teriyaki. In addition to the dozen sauce varieties for those bone-in and boneless wings, Tessler will serve up such sides as sweet potato fries with Caribbean jerk chili mayo, fried macaroni wedges, cole slaw, baked beans and other wing accompaniments.

Tessler hopes to kick off action at his 40-seat lunch and dinner locale by Super Bowl Sunday, scheduled for Feb. 6.
