Pour Me a Sweet Tea and Keep 'Em Comin

Calling all Southern Connoisseurs and pretty much anyone with a love for home-made, just like your momma made it, rib sticking good food. YardBird Southern Table and Bar will be opening in August by former Gigi Chef Jeff McInnis. A native North-Floridian, he sure should know a thing or two about Southern fare.The restaurant is slated to open in August right off of 16th St. and Lenox Ave in the heart of South Beach. I have had the pleasure of speaking with Chef Jeff on a couple occasions while he was top dog at Gigi (while the food was good) He seemed like such a chill and laid back guy with a love for really tasty food, hes pretty humble even though he is one of the few Miami chefs that have reached national notoriety (his Top Chef appearance gave him the spotlight he needed to make a big name for himself in Miami) It has been told that Yardbird is going to be southern fine dining with all the southern hospitality to boot. This might seem like a good idea since it is a demographic that hasn't been filled especially with some of the over the top, frou-frou and sometimes pretentious food that has been coming out of South Beach lately. Find more info at the cleverly named website Wait and Watch.
