Chef’s Special Chicken Wings, Carlos Kitchen

Chef’s Special is a sauce at the top of the Scoville charts. Plain buffalo wing sauce is embellished with Sriracha and Sambal Oelek, two Asian hot sauces that pack plenty of punch on their own. The combination results in a pleasantly smoky yet tangy flavor that can be mellowed out by the accompanying ranch dressing. $9, 4420 S. Durango Road, 207-6556.

Some secrets are worth sharing

By Xania V. Woodman

Bars end up with “secret” cocktails when the news about something utterly delicious but off-menu gets into the hands of just the right crowd. Then comes the tipping point, when everyone knows about it, and then comes the time for a new secret cocktail. Such was the case with the Beckett, a hyper-popular cocktail at the Mandarin Bar (mango nectar, Soho lychee liqueur, lemongrass-infused simple syrup and freshly squeezed lime juice with sparkling wine). With the Beckett now happily installed on the menu, the sexy lounge with the killer view needs a new secret.
