I would never have guessed it but fried chicken and waffles (and biscuits) have taken over South Beach. Yes the land of the beautiful and thin people indeed like to get their fingers (and stomachs) dirty at this off the beaten track, yet still easy to get to, southern fried Cantina. The service is also friendly, which in Miami is as rare as snow so enjoy y'all...

Yardbird Offers Southern Twist
Looking for some down-home comfort food with an upscale twist? Head to Yardbird Southern Table & Bar, a James Beard Foundation Award for Excellence semi-finalist for Best New Restaurant and Best Chef (south) for 2012. From start to finish, and despite the hefty servings, each course leaves you wanting just a taste more as they remove your plates.
Fried green tomato BLT with tomato jam and house-made pimento cheese, mama’s chicken biscuits with pepper jelly, and a heavenly pasta dish served with duck meatballs were a few highlights. Add to it the fun, lively vibe and it’s easy to see how this could quickly become a regular dining spot if your lived in South Beach.
