Chef Richard Hales from Sakaya Kitchen and Blackbrick Chinese is moving into The Confidante hotel.
Chef Hales will open Bird & Bone at The Confidante.
Bird & Bone is scheduled to open on November 27th with breakfast and dinner previews for hotel guests and locals.
The American-inspired menu will feature daily specials like the aptly named “Bone of the Day” and “Bird of the Day. Menu highlights will include Slow Roasted Lamb Ribs with White BBQ Sauce, Charred Cauliflower, Cayenne Pepper; and Mason Jar Snacks like Deviled Ham, Smoked Potato & Egg Salad, Pimento Cheese and Oxtail with Benne Seed Wafers. Desserts will be a twist on Southern classics by Chef Hales’ wife, Jenny Hales, including Bourbon Cake with Cinnamon Whipped Cream topped with Candied Pecans.
In early 2017, Bird & Bone will also feature an in-house farmers market and to-go section open daily. The market will be hotel guests’ and locals’ go-to spot for coffee, homemade biscuits and jellies, salads, sandwiches, and speciality goods including Florida honey, cookies, organic produce and more. Market menu highlights include Chef Hales’ Fried Chicken in a take-out 12-piece “bucket” for those in a hurry, as well as a Nashville Hot Chicken Salad Sandwich on grilled Zak the Baker Country Bread, Coleslaw and a Kosher Pickle.
Let’s just say, we CANNOT WAIT! ????
