ABOUT US

Yardbird is Zurich's very first Southern Fried Chicken restaurant. It is the brainchild of the same people behind The Bite Gourmet Burger Restaurant and Brisket Southern BBQ & Bar.

The name "Yardbird" comes from a term derived in the deep South, where chickens run freely in your backyard. It's a staple down there, and has been a fixture here in Zurich since 2017.

All meat is locally sourced Swiss chicken and is served double-fried, buttermilk-style with four on-the-bone pieces per portion. Our chicken is brined for 24-hours and tossed in house spices. Each menu creation is inspired by traditional, local delicacies from the South, which we've put together using a modern twist. We hope you enjoy what we do!

OUR DISHES

We offer a wide variety of Southern-style Buttermilk Fried Chicken, each dish unique from the next! We use only high quality locally-sourced Swiss chicken. Our main dishes come with four on-the-bone pieces per portion or nine wings, where the chicken is brined for 24-hours using a very secret house recipe. Each main dish includes 325g – 350g of fried chicken. Our additional meats are: bacon CH, chorizo ES. Most main dishes can be ordered as a vegetarian option, please ask your server about the best combinations.
