Yardbird Southern Table-Miami Beach, FL

When your on the road, I always look for meals that are different, something I can't cook at home, or just good ol' home cooking. Well Yardbird touches upon all three. And their description of what Southern Food is explains it to a tee...

Growing up Southern is a privilege. It runs a helluva lot deeper than just where you’re born. It’s a set of ideals passed down through generations. Sure, it’s about sweet tea and swimmin’ holes, front porches and fried chicken, magnolias and Moon Pies. But more importantly, it’s about being devoted to your roots; having a sense of place, of tradition, of family, hard work and each other. And those, my friends, should be universal ideals.
To that end, we proudly present Yardbird Southern Table & Bar. A house of worship to farm-fresh ingredients, classic Southern cooking, culture and hospitality. What we believe is a noble endeavor indeed. So stop on by, cop a seat and sample some from-scratch divinity. We’re serving up the freshest, most inventive takes on regional Southern fare seven days a week with a foot-stompin’,
soul-healin’ brunch on Saturdays and Sundays. We’ll keep a place set for you.

First let's start with the cocktails, most are made with bourbon, moonshine, or some kind of whisky! I went for the moonshine with watermelon.

With so many things I wanted to try it was hard to pick...we started with the housemade ricotta served up with strawberries and baby pickled radish. Yummy! 

Then we shared the heirloom tomato salad with watermelon and farmers cheese that was seared! Nice and lite!

For my main dish I had the fresh fish of the day which was triggerfish. Great dish-nice and light!
