Chef Marcus Woodham is the executive chef of Birdy’s in addition to holding that position at The Bower and Claret Wine & Cocktail Bar. Marie Guevara, the Chef de Cuisine, heads to Birdy’s from the now-closed downtown deli Aglio where she was chef/owner. The two have partnered to create a menu that includes house-made pastries, healthier items such as tropical smoothies, salads, and bowls and classic breakfast items including French toast and a bacon, egg and cheese biscuit.

Birdy’s says it partners with Sugar Roots Farms in New Orleans to source fresh, local ingredients for dishes that range from comforting, house-made breakfast staples to lighter, health-conscious fare.

The space was designed to be inviting and playful with a chic and light interior and a combined tented patio that is shared with Claret and The Bower. Guests can grab and go, or linger and enjoy an afternoon filled with bottomless mimosas.
