Last week I was invited to a special blogger event hosted by Better Byrd before their grand opening. Better Byrd is a new restaurant by Ciccio Restaurant Group, and I have to admit that I'm already a BIG fan of a lot of their other restaurants. I frequent Fresh Kitchen, and I had been following the progress of the restaurant next door .... patiently anticipating the announcement of what was to come. Imagine my surprise when I found out the restaurant would be home to Better Byrd, who would be serving both chicken AND doughnuts!
Needless to say, I absolutely loved it. I got to taste a lot of the menu items at the event, my favorite being the Brussels Bowl and the Bacon Sriracha Queso Fries. Oh ... and I can't forget the watermelon lemonade (pictured on the last photo) ... that stuff is BOMB. Seriously, I had about 5 glasses of it at the event!
I absolutely love this place, so much that I've been back twice for lunch. I haven't tried their brunch ...but yes, they also have brunch items! So next time you're in St. Pete, check Better Byrd, let me know what you think!
