About

Only three train stops from the ocean!

“Named after my daughter Birdie and my grandmother Gladys, Birdie G’s is a fun, American restaurant inspired by childhood memories and family traditions. How do I define our style? Easy…it’s the product of an Eastern-European Jew who grew up in the Midwest and the Deep South, and then settled in Southern California. I don’t know how I can make it any clearer. At the end of the day, Birdie G’s is “where fine food and good people meet,” so please relax and have a great time!” – Chef/Co-Owner Jeremy Fox

Helmed by Jeremy (also the award-winning Chef/Co-Owner at Rustic Canyon) and Chef de Cuisine Matthew Schaler, Birdie G’s is located within Santa Monica’s historic Bergamot Station and surrounded by art galleries and creative businesses. We’re also a member of the Rustic Canyon Family, a collection of celebrated, neighborhood dining destinations throughout Santa Monica and Ojai. 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 our values of planet-friendly practices.

Self-taught Sommelier Kobi Tsesarsky oversees the 250+ bottle wine list, which ranges from classic to trending styles from around the world, all of which come from chemical-free vineyards and winemakers focused on soil health. Originally curated by Rustic Canyon Family Wine Director Kathryn Coker and taking inspiration from 1950s and 60s-era supper club menus, the well-rounded and approachable list includes a robust selection of by-the-glass options and over 90 half bottles.

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. To create a more connected bar experience, she takes pride in working with a variety of smaller-batched, local spirit companies.

From the food to the cocktails to the wine list, everything has a story and pays homage to loved ones – friends, family, farmers – who inspire the team. Gather on the sprawling outdoor patio, the airy dining room or the intimate bar and lounge (aka “The Bird’s Nest”) over rounds of drinks and a variety of wood-grilled meats and fish, steaks dry-aged in-house, handmade pastas, playful salads and vegetable dishes that celebrate the region’s bountiful micro-seasons. Deanie Hickox, Jeremy’s friend and ex-wife, is our rockstar consulting pastry chef, so don’t forget to leave room for a slice of “World-Famous” Rose Petal Pie!

Basically, we’re the kind of place where you eat too much, drink too much and leave with a really big smile on your face.
