Buffalo Wild Wings didn’t open Dec. 9 as planned — and the restaurant’s general manager, Andrew Schuett, said Friday morning he doesn’t know when it will.

“At the moment we don’t have an opening date,” he said. “We’re fully functional; we’re just waiting for the ‘OK’ [from the landlord].”

Mr. Schuett declined further comment.

Despite not opening on schedule, Mr. Schuett did hand out vouchers on Monday morning as the restaurant had planned, entitling a number of customers who lined up early to six free wings a week for an entire year.

A popular casual eatery with headquarters in Minneapolis and locations across Long Island, the Riverhead Buffalo Wild Wings is located in a shopping center just east of Riverhead Raceway. The plaza is also home to a recently-opened Dick’s Sporting Goods, Five Below and Christmas Tree Shops. Starbucks, Aldi and The Vitamin Shoppe — all located in the same shopping center — are scheduled to open in the next few months.
