Blokes & Birds Introduces New Menu

Smaller Plates and Lighter Fare with English Influences

Menu now available at dinner service
Sunday-Thursday, 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. and Friday-Saturday, 5 p.m. to Midnight

Chef Greg Cannon has recently introduced a re-vamped menu at Blokes and Birds. This season, the English gastropub will offer a larger selection of small plates, perfect for sharing with pals over a pint. Cannon’s new items include grilled baby octopus with rumbledthumps, aleppo chili and preserved lemon; ceviche with English cucumbers; prosciutto-wrapped mozzarella with butterscotch vinaigrette and oxford-style meatballs with wow wow sauce.

If you still have your eye on shepherd’s pie this summer, it has moved to the small plates section with a simply smaller serving. Similar Blokes’ favorites, like the baked mac ‘n cheese, are now available in half-sizes.

The gastropub fare is complemented by 70 global imports and American craft beers, along with custom craft cocktails and a well-edited wine list.
