Focusing on Eastern European cuisine and California’s abundant produce, Birdie G’s is helmed by award-winning Chef and Co-Owner Jeremy Fox (also the chef/co-owner at Rustic Canyon) and Chef de Cuisine Matthew Schaler. Located within Santa Monica’s historic Bergamot Station, the neighborhood restaurant is named after Jeremy’s daughter Birdie and grandmother Gladys. Taking inspiration from Jeremy’s ancestral roots, the menu is an exploration and celebration of the cuisines of Hungary, Poland, Ukraine, Germany and more. Nearly everything is made in-house, with an emphasis on zero-waste, and seasonal ingredients are sourced from local farmers, ranchers and fishers aligned with the restaurant’s values of planet-friendly practices.
Self-taught Sommelier Kobi Tsesarsky oversees the 250+ bottle wine list, all of which come from chemical-free vineyards and winemakers focused on soil health. Bar Manager Stephanie Reading leans into farmers’ market produce and a variety of house-made infused spirits, syrups and tinctures to create a dynamic cocktail menu with nostalgic classics and modern creations.
