Fukushu Restaurant Concepts’ Southern restaurant, BIRD Modern Provisions & Bar, launched its new menu on Wednesday.

The dinner menu received modest updates with tweaks to existing dishes and a few new dishes. For example, the Ribeye steak entree has been replaced with the Steak Frites ($23), which now features a flat iron steak with fries and chimichurri.

Two completely new additions are the Cioppino ($28) with mussels, shrimp, white fish, potato, fennel, and crispy bread along with the Butternut Squash Risotto ($15) with wild mushroom, sun-dried tomato, chive oil, and hazelnuts (add shrimp for $9).

The cocktail menu features creative concoctions that serve more as homages to drinking traditions rather than recreations of classic cocktails. In addition to a couple of julep cup-bound cocktails, sangria and a Paloma-inspired highball join the fray.
