Formerly hidden Jbird closed its location inside XVI in December, and it's now roosting permanently on the Upper East Side. Cocktail guru Jason Littrell (Death & Co., the Randolph) designed the drinks list with Marshall Altier; their lineup roves through the classics, from sours to swizzles to fizzes, all served with the proper hand-cut or crushed ice a boon for the proper-cocktails-starved UES. There's also a meaty food menu including a burger, bone marrow, and roasted pork shoulder you can make a meal at the long communal table or perch at the bar for drinks and snacks. Scope it out in our slideshow and see the drinks menu below.
