Taryn Brandes, of Brand Urban – Charter Realty’s new urban brokerage partner, has secured a 8,000 SF lease for Yardbird Southern Table & Bar in Washington D.C, the first in the area. Yardbird will be located at the heart of downtown, in the former Acadiana restaurant space at 901 New York Avenue NW. Brad Buslik with H&R Retail worked with Brand Urban and represented Yardbird locally in the search. Yardbird worked with Boston Properties to make this vision a reality.
Yardbird is a James Beard nominated restaurant specializing in farm-fresh ingredients and classic Southern cooking, with locations in Miami, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Singapore, and Dallas (coming soon). The first restaurant was opened in Miami in 2011 by 50 Eggs, Inc., founded by chef and restauranteur John Kunkel. Kunkel and the 50 Eggs team also own and operate the casual Spring Chicken concept, as well as Latin-inspired Chica and modern American AD LIB concepts.
Charter and Brand Urban haves been retained as the national real estate adviser & master broker to Yardbird, along with the other brands operated under the 50 Eggs Hospitality Group platform.
Yardbird is expected to open in Washington D.C. in 2020.
