The pure essence of jazz is being able to relax and not be bound by rules and constraints of any kind. It lies in the boldness to experiment and in the contrast of subtlety and directness, things this menu features heavily. Being one of the favorite New York jazz clubs, Birdland has always placed great emphasis on the un-hindered relaxation of its guests. Just like in the 50’s and 60’s, when a night out meant a nice dinner and jazz show, Birdland looks to capture that tradition and preserve it, promote it, and leave a legacy for generations to come.

Jazzing Up the Plates

The quality of live jazz shows is not even up for a debate, and the same could be said about the dinner portion of Birdland’s dinner and jazz offer. As one of the oldest New York jazz clubs, they have the overwhelmingly positive reputation and tradition only a few other iconic clubs can claim. Their masterful staff created two distinctively different menus that perfectly complement each other.

  • Birdland Jazz Club Dinner Menu
    The Cajun-style menu that offers strong flavor, even flamboyant at times, sort of like a jazz virtuoso playing an incredible solo just because he or she can. The menu features a combination of meat, salads, fruits, vegetables, and spices in a fashion that steals your senses and leaves a memorable experience for guests.
  • Birdland Theater Dinner Menu
    The Italian style menu that offers subtlety and mildness, focusing on what Italians do best; wooing you with mild flavors and top-quality pastry, cheese, and Mediterranean-style sauces. This menu is like that slow-dance piano jazz player that doesn’t dictate how you should dance but follows you instead, making sure you have the freedom of movement accompanied by powerful and sensual sound.

The Setting

Birdland jazz club has been operating since the 1950s, and the spirit of the club hasn’t changed even when everything else did. The staple of that spirit has always been taking care of jazz-loving guests. This entailed always being reminiscent of the history of the jazz culture and the precision and proficiency that comes with it. That translated from music to food to the venue itself and continues to be the reason why dinner and jazz night outs are still alive today. Birdland’s masterful chefs nourish your body with tasty cuisine while world-renowned musicians and talented emerging jazz stars feed your soul.
