Birdy’s Behind the Bower, the charming Instagram-worthy spot perched in the back of New Orleans’ Framework building, is known for serving up some of the Crescent City’s most delectable Southern-inspired, locally sourced American fare. At Birdy’s, the chefs work closely with partner farm, Sugar Roots, to source fresh, local ingredients for dishes that range from comforting house-made breakfast items and specialty toasts to health-conscious power bowls and salads. Now, the indoor/outdoor eatery is pleased to announce the debut of a brand new Spring menu with the launch of All-Day Brunch.
“After being open for a year, we have realized that some of our most popular items are only offered on the weekends. Our goal with the daily brunch menu is to offer a little bit of everything,” says Mark Latter, owner/operator of Latter Hospitality. “Now, guests can order a benedict and Brunch Board any day of the week.”
Available Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 8AM-2PM; Saturday and Sunday from 8AM-3PM, Birdy’s new all-encompassing menu offers something for every diner.
Selections run the gamut of salad and sandwich options for those on their lunch break during work, to a Classic Breakfast and Huevos Rancheros for breakfast aficionados.
New standouts include the Debris Benedict served with shredded beef, poached eggs, buttermilk biscuit, hollandaise, pickled red onions; Mushroom Patty Melt – broccoli, white cheddar and caramelized onions served on brioche; Polenta Toast – crispy white cheddar polenta, Buster crab, roasted poblano pepper and corn vinaigrette, queso fresco; French Toast made with brioche, served with whipped ricotta, lemon curd and blueberries; and a festive Funfetti Bubble Waffle served with Louisiana strawberries, chantilly cream and granola. Of course, Birdy’s famed Brunch Board – donut, granola, slab bacon, hot coppa, bubble waffle, fruit, seasonal jam, mini cookies, mini pancakes, triple crème brie, soft boiled eggs; and Biscuit Board – whipped local honey butter, seasonal jam, chicken sausage gravy are also available.
As no brunch is complete without boozy concoctions, guests can choose from a variety of brunch cocktails to indulge in, such as $20 Bottomless Mimosas; Birdy’s Bloody Mary; Cold Brew Old Fashioned - Jameson, cold brew, mole bitters; Lillet Spritz - Lillet Blanc, soda, bubbles; and Hummingbird - white peach Grey Goose, fiero, simple syrup, grapefruit, orange juice, luxardo cherries. Wine, beer, mocktails, smoothies, coffee and specialty lattes are also available.
Birdy’s now offers a combined breakfast, lunch and brunch menu Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 8AM-2PM; Saturday and Sunday from 8AM-3PM. The restaurant is closed on Wednesday.
