DOWNEY - Buffalo Wild Wings, the fast, casual dining eatery and sports bar with over 700 restaurants across the United States, will open a new 7,380-square-foot location with outdoor seating at the Stonewood Center in Downey this year.Best known for its Buffalo, New York-style chicken wings and 18 signature wing sauces, the Minneapolis-based restaurant chain will soon acquire the south-facing retail space now occupied by F.Y.E. as early as next month, according to Stonewood officials. "The search for the next perfect retailer or eatery for Stonewood is constant. Retail is all about what's new and fresh, and we look forward to the opportunity to bring new compelling concepts to Stonewood Center," said Brian Malony, marketing manager at Stonewood Center. "Our job is to continue to evolve and perfect our center's merchandise mix to serve the wants and needs of this community." In addition to chicken wings, the casual restaurant also serves specialty hamburgers, sandwiches, wraps, chicken tenders, popcorn shrimp, soft tacos, salads and appetizers inside what Buffalo Wild Wings' website calls "an inviting neighborhood atmosphere that includes an extensive multi-media system, a full bar and an open layout, which appeals to sports fans and families alike." Buffalo Wild Wings currently operates locations in several surrounding cities, including Buena Park, Torrance, West Covina, Burbank, Irvine, Baldwin Hills and Chino Hills.
