Yardbird - Southern Table and Bar

On a visit to South Beach, Miami, Florida, my son and I tried a restaurant I saw written up in Southern Living for it's chicken and biscuits. I made reservations for lunch online. It lived up to the excellent review from Southern Living and more. The chicken and biscuit was moist, crunchy with a delicious biscuit. The Southern Revival drink was amazing and I hate bourbon! I, of course couldn't pass up the short rib sandwich, the tomato jam was out of this world, we ended up taking a half sandwich home it was so generous. Mac and Cheese well the picture really says it all but their cheese choices made for a robust cheesy flavor that you don't find in mac and cheese anymore. Cheddar waffle was too much given all the food we had but we ate it anyway, yes we did. Would make an awesome entree for a brunch with some peppered maple bacon perhaps ?!? Beans were a nod to needing something our bodies could recognize as good for you, they were al dente fresh and delicious. I wish I had a photo of their Red Velvet Cake but we were so full from lunch we boxed it to go then ate it before I could snap a pic but it was YUMMY. Below are pics of our lunch do yourself a favor and go. Locals say to get there early so they don't run out of your favorite! P.S. I want a roll of their napkin rings !!!
