The talented Sarah Simmons, whose City Grit not only functions as a venue for pop-up meals, but also as a restaurant incubator and a space for chefs to meet their peers who normally toil behind the line in kitchens throughout the country, is opening a standalone restaurant. Bird & Bubbles will open in a space near City Grit and will, as its name suggests, serve fried chicken and bubbly, and they’ll also serve “elevated Southern dishes” and a lots more to drink. Eater notes that Simmons and her crew are serving a menu preview at a Sunday Supper event on April 27. [Eater NY, Related]
