It looks like Miami's Yardbird Southern Table & Bar could be expanding to Nashville, as reps for the restaurant made their way to town earlier this week. John Kunkel, founder of 50 Eggs, which owns and operates popular Miami restaurants Khong River House, Patpong Road and Swine Southern Table & Bar, along with Yardbird, posted on Monday that he was '[h]eaded to Nashville for the afternoon to look at real estate for @YBSouthern[.]' Yardbird, described as '[a] house of worship to farm-fresh ingredients, classic Southern cooking, culture and hospitality,' opened in October of 2011 and was a James Beard Award semifinalist for 'Best New Restaurant' in 2012, as well as a long-time entry in Eater Miami's '38 Essential Restaurants' list. A rep for the group tells Eater that news regarding company expansion plans should be coming in the next few weeks, so be sure to check back for updates.
