Chef Marcus Samuelsson has recently opened Streetbird Rotisserie, with dishes reflecting influences from his life, from Ethiopia to Sweden.
The signature dish is, of course, rotisserie chicken, with housemade sauces like barbecue, jerk, sweet soy, and salsa verde; Hot Splash with piri-piri spiced fish, pickled cucumber, and avocado; and salads like The Fly Girl with black kale, romaine, green beans, toasted rice, and lime-coconut dressing.
The cocktail names are just as colorful: Cool Like That Michelada with beer, lime, sweet soy, hot sauce, and a candied ginger rim; The Juicy Fruit with rum, mango purée and pickle juice; and Round’a Way Bourbon with Ceylon tea, tamarind juice, and agave.
There is a section for takeout only.
