Little Bird moves to Coquette 

Chefs Michael Stoltzfus and Kristen Essig's Southern-style chicken pop-up Little Bird is moving to the bar at their restaurant Coquette (2800 Magazine St., 504-265-0421; The restaurant offers an abbreviated Little Bird menu at the bar, as well as wine, Champagne and cider pairings Sunday through Thursday. The previous menu was focused on Southern staples, but the new iteration is strictly chicken. A cold fried chicken sandwich with bread and butter pickles, tomatoes and sauce is $10, and there's an optional pairing of Chappapeela Farmhouse Saison for $15. There's also a half bottle of Paul Clouet Champagne recommended with fried chicken wings served with togarashi, peach hot sauce and ranch dressing.

  Last year, the couple launched Little Bird at Lower Garden District bar Barrel Proof (1201 Magazine St., 504-299-1888; with the help of friend and chef John Sinclair. Last month, the bar owners announced Little Bird had been replaced with Sinclair's bar food concept Barrel Proof Kitchen.
