Marcus Samuelsson's team has been pretty tight lipped about the upcoming Streetbird Rotisserie debut, but a friend of Eater snapped a picture of the restaurant's exterior to give us a taste. Meanwhile, Samuelsson's been dropping a few crumbs of info on social media. Here's what we know:
It's all about the signage — from the hand painted Streetbird design outside to this vintage sign Samuelsson salvaged from Harlem icon M & G Diner.
The ever dapper Samuelsson will deck his servers out in these aprons.
Part of the menu was given a test run in a one night only pop-up downtown, but it looks like some things are still in development. There will of course be rotisserie chicken along with things like these quirky looking "sweetdogs." (Anyone know what these are made from?)
Oh, and wings, there will be wings.
There are plans for some Ethiopian-inspired dishes on the menu, so Marcus got schooled by some doro wat masters.
