I had been dying to try Streetbird for years. Marcus Samuelsson is one of my favorite chefs…I loved watching him on Food Network Chopped. His restaurant Red Rooster is delicious, so I knew Streetbird would be equally as good.
I’ll get straight to the point: my friend and I ordered a pitcher of Carolina Sweet Tea Sangria to start with.
Then our server came back to give suggestions, highlighting the menu. My friend ordered the Chicken & Waffles. He decided on the Cornbread batter (over the Red Velvet batter) and a side of Not Yo’ Mama’s Collard Greens. I tried his food and we agreed it was amazing. The chicken was very well seasoned and the cornbread waffle was so fluffy and flavorful.
The Hot & Messy was like nothing I’ve ever experience before…but it was somehow everything I’ve ever wanted. Now bare with me: It was cornbread with peanut butter spread topped with rotisserie chicken and bacon, smeared with avocado, and finished off with a fried egg. When the waiter explained it I knew I had to try it. It was magical.
Streetbird is trendy and vibrant. You walk in and you immediate feel at home. It has a Diner feel with all of the vintage signs and throwback jerseys. It’s honestly a Harlem Gem. Absolutely try Streetbird! It’s great for groups, families, dates, take out, drinks…anything!
