“Yardbird Southern Table & Bar will officially open its doors to the DC community on April 1, boasting a large menu of inspired Southern classics such as Lewellyn’s Fine Fried Chicken, and seasonal DC exclusives like the Crispy Local Soft Shell Crabs and Watermelon-Tomato Salad.
The Miami-based restaurant’s first Mid-Atlantic location will also feature an extensive whiskey selection, with specialty cocktails like the Gentleman Sakura, made with 2oz Sagamore Spirit Rye Whiskey and 1oz of DC’s Don Ciccio & Figli Cerasum Aperitivo, stirred and served up, garnished with pure orange oil and a fresh local Cherry Blossom.
At opening, the restaurant will offer lunch, supper and weekend brunch, as well as outdoor dining on its expansive patio, pick-up and delivery. To ensure the safety of Yardbird guests and employees, the restaurant is taking the highest level of safety and health precautions as set forth by the CDC and city officials, regularly testing employees and taking their temperatures daily, properly distancing guests and sanitizing the restaurant throughout the day.”
