Yardbird serves those big, heavy Southern dishes you know will put you out for the next six hours, but you happily eat anyway because they’re that good. Fried chicken is the main attraction here, and the best way to get it is in the chicken ‘n’ watermelon ‘n’ waffles, which (as you may have guessed) comes with waffles and an amazing chilled spicy watermelon. Brunch here is also a great way to get way too full on a lazy Sunday morning. Take a stroll down Lincoln Road to recover, where people will be too busy fighting their way through the Apple Store to judge your “I ate too many biscuits” face.
