    Default Yardbird

    If I could rate Yardbird with 10 stars, I would. It's simple stellar on all levels. The location is near the Lincoln Road Mall action. The hostess was friendly but our waitress, Deborah, was top notch. EVERYONE was attentive in all regards. The southern country setting is super cute with Mason Jar lighting and cool wood. What a fun vibe. Crazy good music (Jack White to name one). The brunch menu, pfttt..ridiculous off the charts. We chose the Chicken n Waffles n Watermelon for two. The chicken was massive and so crispy without a greasy afterglow. The melon was tasty and the savory waffles, so light and satisfying with the bourbon maple syrup. TOOO GOODDD.... Also, we had a side of cheese grits that were ambrosial. My mimosa was perfect and my boyfriend loved his spicy Bloody Mary with okra and a green bean and topped with a side of bacon. Wow....last but NOT least was the maple cream house made donut with a strip of bacon. Seriously, this place rocks. Oh, and the bathroom was immaculate. We are flying back to Miami just to eat here.

    Yes! Isn't it the best? I ate there Sunday again, we try and go a few times a month. Never had a bad experience. And the food is divine. Plus there's even gluten free chicken!

    I ate there for Sunday brunch. I eat here so often they know me and I never wait for a table. I go take out all the time for the grits. Heaven.

    They're opening one in Vegas soon, if that's closer for you to fly.

    For my part I've never had a fantastic meal there and I think it's terribly overpriced for what it is (this can be said about 3/4 of the restaurants in Miami). Nothing bad to say, but I don't get what the big deal is.

    WHY DID YOU LINK TO THE YAHOO STORY????

    For the record I didn't nominate Yardbird. Then again I don't really know how they come up with those national lists.
