If you need an island vacation, midtown’s Jungle Bird offers the draws of a tropical destination without the plane ride. Inspired by old-school tiki bars like Trader Vic’s, this cozy Polynesian paradise features bamboo walls, a thatched-roof bar and a custom-carved 8-foot-tall totem pole, as well as an extensive cocktail list with classic rum-based drinks like the 1944 Mai Tai and original concoctions like the fruity and sweet Patty’s Poison made with rum, pineapple juice, strawberry syrup and cinnamon. The restaurant’s menu of Asian- and island-inspired eats expertly complements the drinks: The pu pu platters (think succulent kalua pork sliders with pineapple preserves or pork sisig tacos with kimchi) along with entrées like the chicken katsu will have you forgetting your mainland worries.
