It's not cheap, but this authentic Irish bar is worth a visit. The crowds are heaving when a big rugby or soccer game hits the huge television screen, but the cozy corner seats offer some privacy for chats and cuddling. Occasional poetry evenings are held in the bar area and of course St. Patrick's night is always a night to remember. Friday night is music night. The menu includes stews, potatoes and pies, followed by thick puddings and, of course, pints of Kilkenny.
Good music, fine alcohol and hip crowd are only some of the characteristics of this place. People come here to party after a hard day of work. The ambiance helps in relieving some of their stress and edge them towards a night of dance and revelry. Welcoming feel and multiple genres of music keep people coming back.
Yardbird is a modern yakitori eatery. The restaurant is the brainchild of chef Matt Abergel, whose repertoire includes establishments like Massa in New York and Zuma in Hong Kong. In fact, Yardbird does have a distinct New York City vibe with its sleek, minimalist lines and black-clad servers. Though Yardbird does offer a variety of chicken skewers, the menu also has dishes that use each and every part of the bird - neck, wings, skin et al. Stand-out items on the restaurant's menu include the chicken breast skewers, the chicken meatball served with an egg yolk dipping sauce, the kimchi fried cauliflower and the crispy chicken fried rice. Also on offer are innovative, expertly mixed cocktails like Whiskey Lemonade and a variety of wine, sake and beer.
