Yardbird Southern Table & Bar, Miami Beach, FL

Yardbird Southern Table & Bar Restaurant Review

: Yardbird's famous crispy-outside/juicy inside fried chicken comes generously accompanied by original touches: fluffy cheddar cheese waffles, hot sauce-spiked honey dip, and spiced watermelon. Considerable contemporary creativity is Yardbird's strength --- most dishes derive from Southern classics, but don't reproduce them --- so not surprisingly, much of the menu consists of small plates for those who want to try as much as possible. A standout is the fried green tomato BLT featuring tomato jam, pimiento cheese and Tabasco-glazed pork belly. Vegetarians can put together satisfying meals from the large array of salads highlighting local produce. For dessert, you may find coconut cream pie, bacon-butterscotch cake and a peanut butter sundae. The frequently-changing wine list has numerous American boutique labels, rather than a wide range of global wines, but is notable for its user-friendly categorizations. There are also craft brews on tap, plus cocktails like blackberry bourbon lemonade.
