Chef Jason Kupper reviews CA state bird with provisions at State Bird Provisions

"It was love after first bite. The crispy texture of the crust keeping all the juices from the bird inside with the sweet & sour from the lemon sousbise that it was swimming in. Salty from the shaved parm. A heavyweight dish packing a TKO flavor punch!"

"This little pillow of joy would make every hippie in the Haight Ashbury trade in their grilled cheese sandwich for just one whiff of the melted garlic or bite of gooey burrata that has all the familiar flavors you remember but with a sophisticated twist."
Chef David  Baeli reviews Steak tartare at State Bird Provisions

"Simple yet flavorful! Like most of the dishes here, they found a way to pack in so much flavor. All of the toasts make great starters, but this one clearly stands out the most."

"As the menu changes frequently, I can only recommend that you try as much as you can each time you go there. There isn't a single misstep in anything you order. The pork spare ribs are heavenly. Stuart and Nicole are the dynamic duo!"
