Dear New York,

“This is a love letter to you and how you brought us together. Only in a city as electric as this could we bring you a place as eclectic as this. ”
( Beastie Boys, 2005)

Just like you, we dream of ditching work to sip rose in the park and of hot summer nights all year long. We hope you’ll come and be a part of what we are – a place to celebrate life with what we know best – food and drink ( crazy delicious food and drink, to be exact) .

People keep asking who we are and where our name came from. Well, here it is – it was through a series of inspirations that are downtown New York: a history of street art, design, music, our 19th-century brick and mortar, and an abstract approach to be whoever we wanted to be, without boundaries. We are cooking food that is meaningful to us and delicious, and we are careful not to label ourselves. Sure, there are jazz roots in hip hop, graffiti roots in Warhol, Basquiat and Haring, and Italian roots in our space, but overall we hold above all else a deep-seeded ideal to be creative and provide a welcoming place for you all to eat. Charlie Bird means New York.

Our space is local, spreading from the inside out; we’re organic in our approach and our delivery. Our team’s background is complex and while we hail from some of the finest dining establishments in the world, we just want to be your favorite, neighborhood joint.

The menu comes from New York’s farmers markets, Long Island fishing boats, country fields and the wondrous meanderings of spirited travelers with passionate palates. We’re crushing seafood, roasted meats, crazy good wine and creamy espresso. Our wine list is broad enough for you to come by and enjoy wine with us every night or, you can be a baller and order something you can’t get anywhere else in the world. We’re Italian influenced, American executed and entirely New York.

Built For You, By You
