At first glance, Purbird is a modest chicken hut settled beneath a yoga studio in prime Park Slope territory: no table service and no atmosphere to speak of. No meat other than chicken, either, unless you count turkey bacon. Closer inspection reveals it to be the product of a downright academic search for poultry perfection. Owners source their hens from an Amish farm and brine the meat for extra tenderness. The “burger” features a patty so moist it nearly dissolves mid-bite, and a juicy chicken sandwich has avocado and turkey bacon stuffed inside. Sturdy sides including creamed spinach and jalapeno-mashed potatoes fill out the compact menu that holds mild surprises, like a flaky chicken pie. Other items offer mixed results: The salad list feels like a formality, and a promising-seeming soup filled with veggies and bow-tie pasta feels overwhelmed by its lemon-tinged broth.
