Yardbird’s Last Outpost Lands in Chicago

Foster group 50 eggs launched a new location of its modern American concept, yard bird, in the River North neighborhood of Chicago. New York-based Rockwell Group led the design of the accessible restaurant, which features a friendly atmosphere characterized by a seamless indoor-outdoor flow that ties the space to the cityscape.

“The act of dining and hospitality is all about bringing people together and Yardbird truly embodies that idea, from the brand’s incredible sense of hospitality to the menu’s innovative Classic American cuisine,” says Shawn Sullivan, partner of the Rockwell group. “By taking these landmarks, [we] developed a design concept that draws guests in through a series of open-plan dining spaces connected by a mezzanine. Each area offers a different type of gathering space, allowing for a range of social experiences.

Beyond the arched entrance of the black facade, Yardbird is lined with its characteristic materiality of wooden joinery, woven thread, antique mirror, warm leather and blackened leather. Navy hues also abound to contrast the interior’s neutral base, which is anchored by a double-height bar accented by a private bourbon room that appears to float above. Fitted with backlit blackened glass and metal shelving, the theatrical space accommodates storage and offers a birds-eye view for up to eight guests.
