Yardbird is a modern izakaya that specializes in yakitori dishes of skewered grilled chicken. The menu, created by Chef Matt Abergel, focuses on the many different parts of a chicken, from neck to tail, that are grilled over traditional Binchotan charcoal.

The chicken served at Yardbird is sourced from a Hong Kong purveyor who finds high quality, healthy chickens from local farms. Yardbird ensures that every chicken used is brought in fresh daily, which allows
each chicken to keep its natural flavor. In addition to yakitori, Yardbird also features ‘smaller’ and ‘bigger’ dishes that incorporate fresh, seasonal ingredients. The beverage list, created by Beverage Director, Elliot Faber, is a collection of
carefully selected sake, shochu, beer, wine, cocktails, and Japanese Whisky.

Owners Matt Abergel and Lindsay Jang worked with furniture designer, Sean Dix, and artist, Evan Hecox, to create a family-style, neighborhood establishment that combines the highest level of service with the best quality food and drink in a fun and relaxed environment.

Open from 6:00 p.m. to Midnight, Monday to Saturday and does not accept reservations.
