It's hard not to go into The Bird & The Bear with some expectations. The second restaurant from Elouise Jones, it could lean Southern, á la Ouisie's Table, but the tagline "American Bistro" also implies a bit of French flair and maybe even some new American flavors. But the range of Bird & Bear's menu surpasses even those scattered metrics, with inspiration from Morocco, Italy, Mexico, France and Spain, but all these varied themes sometimes inspire scattered execution and a lack of culinary focus. The consistency on the menu comes from a focus on lighter fare, with plenty of salads, sandwiches, vegetarian dishes and seafood, all prepared with a bit of indulgence, like the occasional cream sauce or fried sweet potato chips. It's a formula that seems to be working, as the similarly eclectic dining room is often packed with ladies (and even a few men) lunching.
Ouisie changes up the menu late at night, offering a selection of tapas.
