It only took two days before a Buffalo staple was left wingless in the Big Apple. 

Anchor Bar just opened up a new location located in the Manhattan neighborhood of Hell's Kitchen Thursday. But by lunchtime Friday, the franchise ran out of wings for a brief moment. 

"At Anchor Bar, we don’t serve just any wings, so in order to supply our customers with fresh, signature wings the Anchor Bar way, we had to special order additional supply," the Anchor Bar team told 7 Eyewitness News. 

The Anchor Bar says it has made arrangements with its wing supplier to ensure that the restaurant is fully stocked with wings, and that this doesn't happen again. 

The new Anchor Bar in New York City did triple the sales of its flagship restaurant here in the Queen City, according to a spokesperson. 

Anchor Bar is credited by some with creating the spicy turn on chicken wings now commonly known as Buffalo wings in 1964.

The new location in Manhattan features a 3,840 square-feet of space with a family dining area and a sports bar with flat-screen TVs.
