About the restaurant
There are few modern food trends that have endured as much as that for unabashed, devil-may-care American food. The vogue for deep-fried everything, long-smoked barbecue and burgers with everything on them show no sign of slowing up, and in the heart of Liverpool’s Georgian Quarter, they’ve got a restaurant that is at the very forefront of the Yankee bandwagon. Yardbird on Berry Street provide punters with a range of dishes that take in the very best of American cuisine, with an emphasis on the birds, whether that be in the form of wings, fried chicken burgers or the Southern classic of chicken and waffles. Book a table and take a trip down into the city centre – you can find Yardbird right by Liverpool Cathedral – for an American restaurant in Liverpool with more than a little going for it.
The Bird, so they say, is the word. We thought everyone had heard. Have we been misinformed? From The Trashmen through Stanley Kubrick and onto Peter Griffin, we held this truth to be self-evident in American cuisine and cooking. It’s nice to know that there is a restaurant that also keeps the bird front and centre in their culinary thoughts in the centre of Liverpool, in the form of Yardbird on Berry Street in the Georgian Quarter. They offer American style fried chicken – among other delicacies – in all variations, from buttermilk marinated breasts, buckets of wings and tenders to chicken huevos rancheros and chicken burgers.
The provision of poultry is the main aim at Yardbird, but those who endeavour to make the journey to Berry Street will be met with far more than just chuck. It’d be cruel to Scousers to put so much emphasis on chicken, after all. Yardbird boast an ample array of sides, from maple bacon onion rings, buffalo fried cauliflower with blue cheese, slaw & gravy, Padron peppers and fries done in a multitude of different manners. There’s gallons of coffee to go around as well, often accompanied by donuts of diverse glazes and toppings, so you really have no excuse not to go down to Yardbird if you’re after American food in Liverpool. Book yourself a table and head on in.
