3. Yardbird Southern Table & Bar
One of the first new restaurants opening in 2015 arrives at The Palazzo by way of Miami. Yardbird brings a bit of Southern charm with its fried chicken, creative cocktail program with five types of ice and brunch on the weekends. Expect charred okra, buttermilk biscuits and a big cheddar waffle to make it on the menu.

Yardbird Southern Table & Bar gears an early 2015 opening at the Venetian in the former Pinot Brasserie space with new hires to handle the kitchen and front of house. The Miami-based restaurant from 50 Eggs Inc. touts “comfort food and Southern hospitality.”

Eater Vegas already told you about former Downtown Grand assistant executive chef Todd Harrington taking on the executive chef role. John Courtney Jr. joins him as chef de cuisine. The former executive chef at Born & Raised also worked at RM Seafood, Marche Bacchus and Pinot Brasserie. Most recently he was at neighboring DB Brasserie as executive sous chef.

Finally, I got my first peek inside Yardbird Southern Table & Bar this week. While the Miami import isn’t scheduled to soft open until December 29, with an official grand opening planned for late January, owner John Kunkel gave me the so-called “hardhat” tour (even though my hair would never fit into a hardhat). The huge space, previously home to Pinot Brasserie, already looks amazing, with a front bar opening onto the promenade between the Venetian and the Palazzo, a large casual dining room, and a plush private room where Kunkel hopes to throw whiskey tastings and other cool events. The walls will be adorned with a collection of rare and never before seen photos of film stars, musicians and other celebrities from the 1940′s through the ’90′s shot by cinematic photographer John R Hamilton, including shots of John Wayne, Steve McQueen, Ann-Margret, Johnny Cash, James Taylor and Paul Newman. Kunkel expects the fried chicken to emerge as the restaurant’s signature dish, and is also hoping to wow cocktail connoisseurs with Yardbird’s carved ice program.
