Yardbird Southern Table and Bar is a wonderful restaurant with farm-fresh ingredients, delicious Southern cooking and magnificent cocktails. I had been there before for lunch and dinner, but never for breakfast/brunch. Having heard great things about their brunch, I decided to give it a try.
Last year I invited some people over for dinner and as I was planning the menu, I asked if they had any dietary restrictions. When they told me that they had been trying to avoid gluten and lactose, I suggested scallops or chicken. That’s when I found out that one of them doesn’t like scallops, the other doesn’t like chicken, and they’re all trying to avoid red meat altogether. Since fish isn’t my strong suit, I started searching various sites for recipes that were gluten free, lactose free and vegetarian, trying to find anything that actually sounded appetizing. That was when I came across one of the easiest, tastiest dishes: Whole Living’s Oven Puttanesca.
