Larger plates include the classic half-fried marinated chick as well as the premier Kishka burger: quarter pound seared black pudding, Hook’s Swiss, house pickled pickles, red onion and “de back” with persimmon on a sesame bun pretzel.
On the drinks side, bar manager Stephanie Reading prepares drinks including a chamomile and lavender lemonade mocktail, seasonal cocktails like the Staycation Summer (lime, kumquat, strawberry brandy and tequila) and craft beer. Sommelier Kobi Tsesarsky has also developed a variety of planet-friendly wine glasses.
“Happy Hour is not a commercial program for us, but rather a way to see people having a good time connecting with each other in ‘The Bird’s Nest’ – how we affectionately refer to our bar” , Fox said. “It’s something we haven’t been able to see for so long due to the pandemic. It also gives us the opportunity to try out new dishes and really have fun with the idea of what food can be. “bar food”.
