Southern cookin’ has arrived in Las Vegas, and it goes by the name of Yardbird. In case you’’re wondering, a yardbird down south is a domesticated chicken, and if you cook it right, it’s delicious. Located at the Venetian, Yardbird is a farm to table, southern dining experience made to order. Start with some homemade buttermilk biscuits with smoked brisket, crispy chicken or the preacher’s ham. The real treat here is, of course, southern fried chicken. Totally organic, brined for 24 hours, then dredged in spices and flour and fried to perfection. Put some collard greens or skillet cornbread on the side and wash it all down with a craft cocktail. You’ll be whistling Dixie in no time.
