This isn't the Colonel's fried chicken. At Montreal's Le Bird Bar, their made-to-order fried poultry is served with champagne in either a chic, monochrome dining room or in a Playboy-esque lounge with rich velvet seating and a swanky marble bar. Aside from the elevated aesthetics, their star dish sets itself apart with high-quality, free-range birds raised at a local farm along with an eco-chef cooking style that produces up to 60-percent less grease. Chicken is served with a variety of sides that include fries, watermelon salad, or jalapeno cornbread as well as a selection of 13 sauces that range from honey dijon and maple-Sriracha to jerk mayo and truffled white gravy. If fried chicken isn't your thing, their menu also offers fresh oysters, Wagyu Pogo, and a brisket stuffed burger.
