Locals who want to taste the menu from Shaw’s forthcoming chicken-centric eatery The Bird will be able to do so on 14th Street later this month.
The Pig (1320 14th St. NW) is slated host a pop-up dinner to showcase its new restaurant’s sample menu on May 23-25.
During the pop-up, diners can feast on sweet chili chicken wings, fried amish chicken, pheasant breast and a lacquered BBQ duck and smoked pulled chicken platter meant to satisfy two people. Other sample menu items include dirty fried rice with chicken gizzards and duck fat donuts.
When the restaurant opens later this summer, it will serve chicken, as well as “globally inspired poultry of every stripe,” owner David Winer told us in January.
“We will have amazing fried chicken but that’s the tip of the iceberg,” said Winer, whose company, Eat Well DC, also is behind The Pig, Logan Tavern and other local restaurants.
