Brian Howard of Sparrow and Wolf Opens a New Chicken Restaurant
Chef Brian Howard will open Half Bird Chicken and Beer on Monday in Las Vegas’s Chinatown. The restaurant, which will be more casual than his nearby Sparrow and Wolf, will focus on rotisserie chickens, marinated for 12 hours with lemon, garlic, thyme, sea salt, and oil.
In addition to chicken, the menu will include togarashi rolls, mac and cheese, and smothered fries. While rotisserie chicken is the star, Half Bird will also serve a vegan chicken sandwich, a fried chicken sandwich, and nuggets for late-night dining. Half Bird Chicken and Beer at 3500 Wynn Road will be open Sunday through Thursday 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. and Friday through Saturday 11 a.m. to 2 a.m.
