Absurd Bird is bringing its soul-warming comfort food of the American South to Exeter’s Queen St Dining Quarter at the end of next month. The first Absurd Bird restaurant to open outside the Capital, the new location will bring with it a warm Southern spirit, coupled with a quirky sense of humour that will light up the vibrant Exeter food scene.
With its interior taking inspiration from New Orleans, Bayou and Louisiana, the restaurant is sure to delight as the décor is bursting with interesting details for diners to discover. With features including a mix of reclaimed / worn timber, huge ceiling fans and iron balustrading.
Mark Hall, from Absurd Bird, said: “We were very keen to bring Absurd outside London, where we think there is an opportunity in the market for our brand.
“Exeter was always a city on our radar, with a vibrant heart to the city centre, and a great demographic to enjoy our offer. We were also knocked out by the fantastic development of Queen St Dining, and the opportunity to be part of something brand new.”
With a love for the American Deep-South and their culinary traditions, Absurd Bird features a menu like the ambiance that accompanies it: eclectic, unexpected, improvisational, modern yet nostalgic, sophisticated yet humble, comfortable yet innovative. Look out for signature Waffle Cones with Popcorn Chicken, Buffalo Wings, Sweet Potato Bake, Spinach & Artichoke Dip as well as Jalapeno Mac and Cheese.
Whether fried or grilled, only ethically sourced free-range chickens are used from Fosse Meadows Farm, all of which will be smoked on site, marinated in secret recipe sauces and teamed with some irresistible sides. But hey it’s not all about the chicken, Absurd’s famous Crack Pie will leave diners with a sweet taste in their mouth and a strong desire to come back for more.
Meanwhile, the bar will offer Absurd Moonshine and a creative cocktail list (all cocktails £5 every day from 5pm – 7pm), put together by London’s mixology masterminds at Soulshakers. Whether visiting for dinner or drinks, or even hosting a private function upstairs, Absurd Bird will no doubt prove a perfect place for some after work fun.
