Bay Ridge’s busy 86th Street strip officially made room for 24 new flavors of chicken wings as Planet Wings, at home at 8612 Fifth Avenue since the end of the summer, celebrated its grand opening on Friday, September 19.

“We’re happy to be here,” said Owner Vinny Martella, joined by his brother, Co-Owner James Martella, as they cut the ribbon on Planet Wings’ first-ever Brooklyn locale. With four locations in Staten Island, and hundreds more nationwide, Martella believes Brooklyn may be one of the eatery’s best bets.

“We do everything from wings to sandwiches to salads and burgers,” said Martella, stressing that franchising opportunities are now also available. “We’re looking to get the ball running here in Brooklyn.”
