We are thrilled to announce the launch of J Bird, a new high-quality fast-casual concept opening in Ghirardelli Square. Nationally-renowned for the jw chicken, Jonathan Waxman will at J. Bird offer roast chicken, baskets of fried chicken, seasonal vegetables, grains and fresh pies.
“It is with great pride that we announce the unveiling of J Bird in Ghirardelli Square. J Bird is a concept that I have labored toward my entire career. I have loved Ghirardelli Square since its’ inception in the 1960s and I love being here. J Bird will be a fabulous addition to Ghirardelli Square and I sincerely hope that our customers, new and old, will enjoy our venture.” – Jonathan Waxman
The space – designed by Ken Fulk alum Jon de la Cruz, who most recently worked on the award-winning Leo’s Oyster Bar – has the feel of an electric barn in Sonoma infused with reclaimed wood, corrugated iron, and mixed bright light fixtures. Covered outdoor seating will also be available in the restaurant’s new Rose Garden, invitingly decorated with whimsical chandeliers, hanging plants, trellised flowers and ivy. J. Bird opens the week of August 8th; and in the meantime, please note that Waxman’s will be closed for renovations.
