Birdsong opened in early May and it’s already caused quite a stir! And why not. The folks behind this new place spent time in some of the finest restaurants in the City, including Saison, Atelier Crenn, Benu, and Monsieur Benjamin.
According to Sarah Chorey with 7×7.com, Birdsong is all about heritage cooking. Chef Chris Bleidorn plays with many elements of nature throughout his multi-course affair. The menu blends together the flavors of the Pacific Northwest and his East Coast upbringing. The cooking techniques are intricate and exquisite, finessing fundamental techniques like open fire, fermentation, smoke, and dry-aging.
Each day a new menu is crafted based on the finest offerings from the restaurant’s network of small farms, ranches, and fisheries. They say that they intentionally avoid conventional agriculture in order to support local substantiality and bring flavor and creativity to the forefront.
Limited à la carte options will be available beginning July 1.
