Tough to get a table, but totally worth the wait (a friend just called to get in for dinner and was given a reservation for two weeks out!), Yardbird takes Southern comfort food and makes it cuisine. Obviously, there is a lot of chicken on the menu (Chicken ‘N Watermelon ‘Waffles is a featured dish and is gorgeous!) and otherwise carb-fearing South Beach diners engage in full-on gluttony with gusto here. The food is amazing and you will not regret a single moment spent in the gym in exchange for this meal. The brunch menu features a Maple-Glazed Bacon Doughnut; this alone should make you want to eat here (trust me, it is everything it promises to be).
A great wine list is coupled with an extensive Bourbon and Whiskies list, of course, and the cocktail list is inventive as well.
Yardbird is a refreshing and comfortable alternative to the typical South Beach culinary landscape with a contemporary twist on classic Southern cooking. Go and enjoy every last bite like you would at your Granny’s house.
