I had a lunch meeting today at The Mayobird here in Charlotte and it’s now my new favorite lunch and meeting spot. Whether you live in Charlotte or not, you will love the concept of this restaurant!
It’s based on chicken salad! They offer 17 different varieties of chicken salad and you choose whether you want it on a sandwich, a melt, on a salad plate or with soup or salad.
I love chicken salad with nuts and fruit in it so I went with The Harvest which included apples, grapes and pecans. I did one scoop of chicken salad with a house salad. It was also served with pita chips. My chicken salad tasted great and I loved The Mayobird’s homemade balsamic dressing.
They have tons of great flavors of chicken salad including options like:
– The Big Bird with Curry
– The Heater with Jalepenos
– The Loaded with Bacon, Cheddar and Sour Cream
– The Buffalo with Wing Sauce
– The Greek with Feta, Greek Yogurt, Onions, Cucumbers, Tomatoes and Olives
– The Italian with Pesto and Sundried Tomatoes
And many more!
Everything in the restaurant is homemade and let me tell you…I was giving their desserts a stare down. They looked amazing. If chicken salad isn’t your thing they also have soups, BLTs, egg salad, tuna salad and a bunch of homemade sides.
All of the chicken that they use is local and free-range. And the bread is baked at a local bakery. It’s just an all-around great place!
It wasn’t just the food that sold me though…I really loved the atmosphere at The Mayobird. Seating is at a variety of couches, mismatched tables and counters. It’s the kind of place you want to hang out for a while…and hang out I did! I ended up ordering a latte and cozying up at a table near a fireplace and staying for two more hours after my meeting.
They have a full coffee bar with espresso drinks.
I had an almond milk latte.
The Mayobird also serves a great looking breakfast menu and I can’t wait to go back and give it a try!
So excited to have discovered a new hang out/meeting/breakfast/lunch/coffee spot in Charlotte!
