And the Restaurant train keeps on going! The latest addition to Griffintown’s restaurant scene is all about the chicken and atmosphere. Le Bird Bar is the latest venture brought to you by celebrity chef Kimberly Lallouz and her faithful partner. “The idea behind Le Bird Bar was to bring a new concept to Montreal that people were familiar with but wasn’t in existent yet. There are so many restaurants in our city and to add another requires originality, and this is what we are doing with Le Bird Bar! Pok..Pok…Pok” – Kimberly Lallouz. The concept is all about pairing its made-to-order fried chicken with champagne and a plethora of other delectable dishes. With focus on local and organic ingredients. the food here is made to taste authentic.
So what else sets this place apart from other fried chicken joints? Le Bird Bar has adopted an eco-chef mentality that boasts 40-60% less grease absorption in their fried foods. Additionally, with each fried chicken dish made fresh to order, customers also have the option to order up to thirteen different homemade dipping sauces including; maple-sriracha, marinara, spicy mayo, chimmichurri, bourbon, spicy mango, truffled white gravy, to name but a few. If fried chicken ain’t your thing, Le Bird Bar also offers gluten-free, lactose-free and vegan-friendly options, such as their “mockpock” – vegan drumsticks, readily available from their everyday menu.
To drink, Le Bird Bar has focused on the pairing of fried chicken with champagne hence why there is a grand variety of champagnes, prosecco’s, and sparkling wines on their menu. If you’re in the mood for a cocktail they don’t disappoint – the cocktail list filled with plenty to choose from.
Décor wise, The Gauley Brothers created a gorgeous open-concept and airy space that houses around 67 seats, including a long marble bar complete with black velvet stools and gold accents. Get your Instagram ready. To top it all off, there will be an official announcement coming soon about HENDEN, a hidden venue situated in Le Bird Bar’s basement. Intrigued?
