Description: Bringing the best fried chicken and freshest farm ingredients from Florida and Georgia to the table since 2011, Yardbird has since garnered the praises of the James Beard Foundation as a semi-finalist for "Best New Restaurant South" and as one of Bon Appetit's "50 Best New Restaurants" in 2012. Yardbird sticks to the values of tradition, family, and community with a menu of "soul-nurturing" dishes intended for sharing. A warm, comforting environment lets guests feel relaxed and at home while dining at Yardbird. Southern touches add to the nostalgia, like antique candlestick holders, wildflowers on all the tables, and handmade light fixtures outfitted with Edison bulbs in Mason jars.

Hands down the best fried green tomatoes on the planet. First of all, they come in the form of a BLT. Secondly, the B in the BLT is pancetta. Outside of the mind blowing app, the 27 spice fried chicken is the perfect dish to share for two leaving you with enough room to spare for the grasshopper sundae.

this restaurant is an experience! Order carefully. We didn't, and ate way too much fried chicken, ribs, buttery biscuits, buttery grits and creamy smashed cauliflower, incredibly sauced blue cheese/avocado wedge salad, roasted corn, butter bean combi, pecan pie, and more! Portions are huge and tho we are 4 hefty eaters (on occasion) we could not finish everything. The wait staff is amazing....5 people attending to us, delivering food as it was ready. It was good to walk Lincoln Road Mall before sitting in concert at New World Symphony. Single complaint? NOISE. So go early. It fills up by 6:30.

We had our New Years dinner at the Yardbird.... what a great way to start 2013!

The food was absolutely fantastic! Simple food made to taste incredible. We had a little of almost everything on the menu. The BLT (fried green tomato with pork belly and mixed greens) was a standout - the menu description does not do this justice and we may have not tried it if not for our server's recommendation... it's a must have! The fried chicken is also a must and we paired ours with the watermelon salad and a cheese waffle to make a fantastic plate. Everything was great to share and the southern style of the restaurant really promotes sharing. The beet salad was also a favourite at our table. You need to like beets as it makes up the majority of the salad, but even if you are not fond of beets, when they are paired with cheese and candied peanuts it will make you a convert. The biscuits were a staple (we only needed a 1/2 order for our table). We also had the mac and cheese and the ribs that were a close second to the previously mentioned items.

Needless to say we were more than satisfied and sufficiently full... too full for dessert, actually. We'll have to return as they sounded great.

Our server was a hoot and really made the meal enjoyable with great service and recommendations for this restaurant. Fun lively atmosphere made this the most memorable meal of our trip.

We had our share of bourbon and bourbon cocktails as southern dinners should.

We had never visited Miami Beach before so we asked around as to where we could find the best fried chicken in South Beach. Yardbirds was the name on everybody's lips and it didn't disappoint.
Not just the fried chicken though everything we ordered was tasty, well presented and a delight. The restaurant has quite a buzz about it and the first two courses were so delightful we had to stay and indulge in a little pecan pie. Excellent food excellent evening.
The only thing I would advise is that you book ahead. Luckily our stay was for two weeks as if it had been much shorter we would have missed out on the treats they have to offer.
