Birds of a Feather
Restaurant, Chinese, $$$
Don’t let its garden theme fool you—Birds of a Feather’s menu resembles Sichuan cuisine and if we know one thing about Sichuan food, it’s that some render intolerable its penchant for spicy flavors. Thankfully, there are mild-flavored dishes served here too, but if you’re in the mood for some adventure, try the “find the chicken in the chilies,” a Sichuan staple of chicken bites cooked with an avalanche of red chilies!
