Chef Jeremy Fox With Camera

About

Only three train stops from the ocean!

Tucked away within Santa Monica’s historic Bergamot Station, we’re helmed by award-winning chef Jeremy Fox (also the chef/owner at Rustic Canyon and Tallula’s) and Chef de Cuisine Matthew Schaler. As a member of the Rustic Canyon Family, a collection of celebrated, neighborhood dining destinations, Birdie G’s is a partnership with Jeremy and our co-owners Josh Loeb, Zoe Nathan and Colby Goff. Curious about our name? Birdie is Jeremy’s daughter and the “G” stands for Gladys, his grandmother. We’re the kind of place where you eat too much, drink too much and leave with a really big smile on your face.

The comforting, seasonal menu pulls influences from various regions across the United States and Eastern Europe. Everything from the food to the cocktails to the wine list has a story and pays homage to loved ones (friends, family, farmers!) who inspire the team. We make nearly everything in house, and always with great, local ingredients.

Gather on our sprawling, outdoor patio or in our airy dining room over a variety of wood-grilled California meats and fish, handmade pastas, playful salads and veggie dishes featuring the most beautiful peak-season produce. 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!

Just as Gladys served as Jeremy’s muse, Rustic Canyon Family Wine Director Kathryn Coker looked to her own grandma, who used to drink a glass of wine every night, for inspiration. Sommelier Chloe Miranda can help you navigate our massively, fun list of over 250 selections (we’ve got 90+ half bottles too). Bar Manager Stephanie Reading’s leans on farmers’ market produce and a variety of housemade infused spirits, syrups and tinctures for her cocktails, which range from nostalgic classics to more modern drinks.

Meet the Team

It takes a lot of people to keep this place humming, and we’re really proud of everyone’s hard work and passion. Meet a few of the talented folks who make Birdie G’s so special.
