Austin is already a great town to live if you’re a biscuit lover, and we’re about to gain a new, more portable option with the opening of Bird Bird Biscuit. The new venture from chef Brian Batch and Ryan McElroy, co-owner of beloved Eastside coffeeshop Thunderbird Coffee, is slated to open on June 28.the ideal breakfast for most of the musicians we know. ) For Bird Bird Biscuit (2701 Manor Rd.), Batch put an emphasis on developing the perfect sandwich biscuit. It must be sturdy enough to hold up to tooth pressure without crumbling into buttery goop, but still retain the flaky richness all biscuit obsessives know and love. Apparently he’s succeeded, and now he’s here to offer you the most perfectly engineered biscuit sandwiches that kitchen tinkering time can produce.
For lunch, get greasy with the Queen Beak – fried chicken on a biscuit topped with more of that chipotle mayo (this time, it’s infused with bacon) and spicy cayenne black pepper honey. There’s even a vegetarian option, the Lush Life, a sort of deconstructed eggplant parm with fried eggplant, mozzarella, garlic tomato jam, and some housemade pickled onions to pep up all that savoriness. A round of biscuits and a couple mugs of Thunderbird standard coffee promises to be the ideal weekend hangover cure, if you can manage to drag yourself out of bed by their early closing time of 4pm.
