Breakfast at Bird & Bone
Everyday from 7 to 11 a.m.
If you've been to Bird & Bone for dinner, you know Richard Hales' Nashville hot chicken is enough of a reason to return. But evening dining aside, the restaurant is worth a visit in the morning, when the kitchen quietly whips up an affordable, Southern-inspired breakfast from 7 to 11 a.m. The menu is a mixture of Hales' signature dinnertime plates and some lighter, healthier options. Fresh-pressed juices and oatmeal are paired with waffles, pancakes, eggs, and fried chicken. Savory offerings include four toasts, served on Zak the Baker country wheat, smeared with avocado, fig, Benton's ham, or smoked salmon ($8 to $11). There are egg plates too ($12 to $16), such as a Benedict with fried green tomato and Alabama white barbecue hollandaise, and a breakfast sandwich stuffed with pepper bacon and jack cheese. Sweet plates range from a vegan pancake stack to buttermilk waffles to sweet-potato pancakes topped with marshmallows and candied walnuts. For the ultimate blend of sweet and savory, opt for Hales' hot chicken and waffle ($22).
