Brandon and Faith Lee are both Chinese American and co-owners of Bird & Branch, located in Hell’s Kitchen. From the name and mission to the menu itself, every detail here is intentional and selectively curated. The Lees created the shop with the purpose of giving back to the community by providing a job training program for folks with various barriers to employment, including victims of trafficking and people caught in the shelter system. They also partner with Saint Frank Coffee roasters because of their conscious relationships with coffee producers. Order the Nightingale - one of the many menu items named after a bird - a mix of earl grey tea steeped in milk with espresso, along with the delicious egg sandwich, which integrates Chinese ingredients from childhood snacks they grew up with, like rousong (pork floss) and ginger scallion. Open for indoor, outdoor, and takeout Sunday to Friday from 8am-3pm and Saturday 8am-5pm.
