Re­turn to its roots

Epicure - - EPICURE NEWS -

Yes, it's of­fi­cial: Your favourite South­ern com­fort food restau­rant, The Bird South­ern Ta­ble & Bar has re­verted to its orig­i­nal name, Yard­bird South­ern Ta­ble & Bar. The James Beard-nom­i­nated restau­rant from Amer­ica – Mi­ami, Las Ve­gas and Los An­ge­les, to name a few – is a re­flec­tion of founder John Kunkel’s roots. Die-hard fans of Lewellyn’s Fine Fried Chicken ($34), which is based on a 100-year-old recipe from Kunkel’s grand­mother, Lewellyn, will still be able to en­joy this clas­sic. New dishes cre­ated by cor­po­rate ex­ec­u­tive chef Pa­trick Reb­holz and cor­po­rate ex­ec­u­tive pas­try chef Hedy Gold­smith of Kunkel's restau­rant group, 50 Eggs Inc will draw reg­u­lars and a new gen­er­a­tion of din­ers.

Take for ex­am­ple the Sweet Corn Hush Pup­pies ($14) and Yard­bird Hot Chicken Sand­wich ($22). The lat­ter is a new take on the orig­i­nal hot chicken from Nashville and fea­tures a crisp, yet suc­cu­lent fried chicken thigh tossed in a fiery ghost chilli rub that is made of Bhut Jolokia, one of the spici­est chillies in the world. Re­moulade and but­ter toasted brioche bun com­plete the pic­ture.

Desserts fiends will have a field day ad­mir­ing the colour­ful Dough­nut Tree ($16) or stacks of Fun­fetti Pan­cake ($22) com­plete with colour­ful sprin­kles and fin­ished with le­mon glaze and a dol­lop of whipped cream. (Don't for­get to add lash­ings of their fa­mous Bour­bon Maple Syrup.) These can be en­joyed along­side Reb­holz’s ver­sion of Bis­cuit and Gravy ($23), which are fea­tured on their newly launched Great Amer­i­can Brunch menu, avail­able on Satur­day and Sun­day from 10am to 4pm. #B1-07, Gal­le­ria Level, The Shoppes at Ma­rina Bay Sands, 10 Bayfront Av­enue.
