The inspiration for Chef Kenichi Tajima and wife Keiko’s popular venture no doubt sprang from the popularity of their initial and well-loved incarnation of Mountain Bird. It’s clear they were missed, as this hot spot in collaboration with the events organization Tastings Social, stays hopping most nights. This area has wanted for serious food for a while, and Mountain Bird brings it with style-the dining space, tucked into the ground floor of a red rowhouse, is intimate with a small bar and a smattering of wood tables. As the name implies, the menu bears a whimsical devotion to poultry, featuring dishes like hand-cut ostrich tartare; black truffle chicken wings and duck leg-and-turkey sausage cassoulet; along with a nightly seafood and vegetarian option.
