High Falls’ Northern Spy Café has been serving up crave-worthy vegetarian fare — along with innovative meat and seafood dishes — since 1993, in an “upscale country” setting. The “free-range tofu wings” have long been the café’s “most popular dish,” according to owner George Nagle. Made from organic, extra-firm tofu that has been pressed, floured, and deep-fried, the “wings” are tossed in a spicy Buffalo sauce and served with homemade blue cheese dressing and celery sticks. (Rumor has it that the tofu is first frozen, giving it a denser, more meat-like texture). Recently the restaurant diversified its wings offerings to include Asian-style sesame and Mexican chipotle.
