NYTimes Restaurant Report: Yardbird in Miami Beach

Restaurant Report: Yardbird in Miami Beach, Fla.
New York Times
" . . . Homey touches are all over the menu. Biscuits are baked fresh every half-hour or more; bacon is house-cured — an eight-day process repeated several times a week. Blueberry lemon pie arrives in the cast-iron skillet in which it was baked. Mr. McInnis goes to great pains to keep the menu as locavore as possible. Eggs, poultry, rabbit and alligator (which appears in a sausage) are all locally sourced. A nearby fisherman brings in Florida snapper, swordfish, pompano, wild cobia and spiny lobster. Another purveyor makes weekly deliveries of whole Florida hogs . . .  Even the olive oil comes from a mill in Carrizo Springs, Tex. The bar stocks 75 bourbons, including some pricey ones. (A popular cocktail, the Pork Chop, combines bourbon, cider, citrus juice, fresh thyme and a spoonful of Dijon mustard.) Budget-minded drinkers would do well to check out the wine list “Yard Sale,” featuring a rotating selection of reasonably priced bottles. . . Yardbird, which gets crowded on weekend nights and during Sunday brunch, clearly has its priorities straight. Over the open kitchen there’s a sign: “There are two kinds of people in the world: those who love fried chicken and communists.” Yardbird Southern Table & Bar, 1600 Lenox Avenue; (305) 538-5220; runchickenrun.com. An average dinner for two, without drinks or tip, is about $50; lunch is about $35."
