The Bird might arrive at 1337 11th St. NW this weekend or early next week, owner David Winer told Borderstan today. But Winer noted that he still is working to get all his permits in order.
The restaurnt will serve “globally inspired poultry of every stripe” and use “every part of the animal,” Winer has said.
According to a draft menu, The Bird has fried free-range organic Amish chicken with braised greens and a spiced pickle for $17; jumbo quail stuffed with sausage, cheese, Brussels sprouts, onions and sage for $21; and foie gras with organic beets, fig jam, grapefruit confit, walnut dressing and sumac for $14, among more than a dozen other entrees and appetizers.
The drinks include “The Flying V” with vodka, beet juice, honey, five-spice powder and citrus for $10 and “The Way of the Dodo” with scotch, chartreuse, ginger, lime, pineapple and sage for $12.
The Bird isn’t Winer’s first foray into the D.C. dining. His company, Eat Well DC, also is behind The Pig, Logan Tavern and other local restaurants.
