Not only is everything picture-perfect, but the dishes also taste absolutely amazing!
Yardbird Southern Table and Bar
Schnur coins Yardbird as the best hangover cure. The menu features many southern classics to fuel your body and soul like the crispy chicken biscuit, five-cheese mac and cheese, skillet cornbread and so much more. If you’re looking for a meal on the lighter side, the menu also offers delicious and fresh hand-pressed juices and quinoa egg white omelets.
Watching beautiful boats pass through Biscayne Bay while enjoying some of the best Asian dishes in Miami seems like the perfect weekend plan.
