Dirt wing and craft beer fanatics need to get their fix at J. Timothy's before Aug. 27, as the Plainville tavern plans a temporary closing for major kitchen updates and expansion.
The project, involving installation of a custom-designed walk-in cooler and renovation of the kitchen cooking line, will take about two weeks, general manager Greg Gardner said in a statement.
"In the last few years, due to numerous national and local awards and national television exposure our business has wonderfully and thankfully grown so much that we are in need of doubling our refrigeration capacity," he wrote. "Just a couple of years ago we were serving and cooking about 2 tons of chicken wings per week; that has increased to over 3 tons per week."
J. Timothy's unique wings - which are fried, sauced, fried, then sauced again - were featured on Food Network's "Top 5" program in February, in an episode spotlighting five of the best bar food items in the United States. In the past two years, the wings have also earned national nods from BuzzFeed, Daily Meal and Thrillist.
