Fodor's Review

Perpetually packed since the day it opened in the spring of 2013, Charlie Bird is the love child of sommelier Robert Bohr, who was in charge of wine at vino-mad Cru, and chef Ryan Hardy, who made a name for himself at Little Nell in Aspen and, more recently, sharpened his skills as the private chef for food-loving Jay-Z and Beyonce. It's no coincidence the restaurant has a hip-hop theme (expect old school and '90s rap on the hi-fi). The Italian-leaning menu is divided

into small and large plates, vegetables, a "raw" section, and pasta. The uni-loaded duck egg spaghetti marries surf-and-turf in a deeply satisfying way while the scallops are subtly laced with lardo, giving them an umami boost.
