The husband and wife team of chef Kenichi and Keiko Tajima will reopen Mountain Bird in collaboration with Tastings Social on September 1. The official name of the restaurant is the rather unwieldily sounding Tastings Social Presents Mountain Bird and will initially be open Tuesday through Saturday for dinner, with weekend brunch and Sunday service dinner service expected in the near future. Mountain Bird was forced to shutter due to "landlord issues" back in June 2014 despite garnering critical acclaim. After operating a pop-up at the Tastings Social location the Mountain Bird team secured their permanent home. When they reopen they will be serving the same poultry-focused French menu including the head-to-toe tasting plate and turkey burger stuffed with Mornay sauce.
