Named after the James Beard-nominated chef’s daughter Birdie and grandmother Gladys, the Santa Monica staple from Jeremy Fox (of Rustic Canyon fame) channels homestyle Eastern European cooking through a California lens, producing nearly everything in house with a zero-waste approach. Located inside the historic Bergamot Station, Birdie G’s offers a variety of spaces both indoor and outdoor for groups.
Groups of up to 20 can choose between “the aviary” is a semi-private patio space, or “the blue wall,” a semi-private indoor option dominated by a mural wall.
The covered and heated small porch seats up to 14 guests.
“Al’s workshop” is their most secluded private dining area, offering space in the back of the restaurant for up to 45 seated guests. Toward the back of the patio, the “log cabin” seats 35 guests at tables surrounding a large log-art installation.
Larger groups of up to 80 can take over the main dining room, while a full buyout affords seating for up to 150.
