Italian-accented, rustic food that put this award-winning chef on the map. 


Chef Jonathan Waxman

JBird is an inspired mix of James Beard Award–winning chef Jonathan Waxman's greatest hits. From his sublime roast chicken and crispy potatoes to his oft-imitated kale salad. It's the chef's signature, California-cool blend of rustic yet refined.

JW Chicken
Four pieces of Chef Waxman's famed chicken—rubbed with olive oil and seasoned with salt and pepper, roasted, and paired with a zesty salsa verde. 


Kale Salad  

A salad to convert even committed kale doubters: julienned kale tossed with grated pecorino, sourdough breadcrumbs, and tangy Dijon-anchovy dressing.


Heirloom Tomato Bruschetta  

Big enough for the whole family, rustic Italian bread is toasted with garlic butter, and topped with heirloom tomatoes, basil, Parmesan, herb aioli, and burrata.  

Crispy Parmesan Potatoes 
The crispy potatoes from Chef Waxman's famed restaurant, Barbuto, are gently cooked with garlic, then fried and tossed with Parmesan and fried rosemary. 

Braised Short Ribs & Creamy Polenta   

Melt-in-your-mouth beef short ribs, slow-cooked in a rich red-wine braise, paired with roasted carrots, Cipollini onions, turnips, and buttery polenta.
