What's the deal?

get on upget down
The Bird is a New York style bar & kitchen  opened at the end of April in Hamburg. We believe in serving the finest burgers and steaks possible by using all fresh ingredients.

 Our steaks come from corn and grain fed Black Angus beef exported by Iowa Beef Packers. The meat has been dry aged for a period of thirty days making the beef more tender and concentrating the flavor.

Our burger meat is freshly ground daily from German beef, making the flavor of the burger irresistable, as long as you do not kill it by ordering well done.  Our fries are hand cut from fresh potatoes daily as well.  All of our sauces, salads and cheesecake are home made.

With all the fresh ingredients available, why would we mess around with can-openers and frozen fries?? What you will get is a freshly made meal that will leave you satisfied, and us happy that you came! 

To wash down your meal, we have beers from California, Mexico, Germany and Belgium, or nice Irish cider.   We also serve wines from Spain and Argentina.  If you want something a bit stronger, you can enjoy our extensive bourbon, tequila and rum collection.  If you arrive between 17-19h, you should take advantage of our Angry Hour Special, buy one beer get one free, buy one get one house shot and Napalm wings for 25 cents!  You must be at the bar in order to get this hook up though.

So Yo!  If you want a great meal at a fair price, New York size proportions and the same quality as  our sister restaurant in Berlin, (also coincidently called The Bird) come on through.  If you are a burger fan in Hamburg, you won't know what you are missing until you do!

Opening hours:
Monday to Thursday 17–23h  —  Friday 17–24h  —  Saturday 14–24h  —  Sunday 14–23h


Where we at?

get on upget down
The Bird is located in the heart of the kiez in St.Pauli on Trommelstr 4 near Hein Köllisch Platz, just a stone's throw away from either the Reeperbahn or the Elbe.  We recommend stopping by The Bird to fill up on some 'real' food before heading out to tear it up in St.Pauli's legendary night life scene!

The Steaks

Slowly but surely the beef is getting better and better in Germany. We will stay on top of it and always purchase the best meat available. At the moment the absolute best beef on the market here comes from the good ol’ U.S. of A. It is corn and grain-fed Black Angus beef and exported by Iowa Beef Packers. The meat has been dry aged for a period of 30 days, making the beef more tender and concentrated in flavor.

General info about ordering and eating a good steak:

> Fat means flavor
> Fattier cuts mean more taste in the meat and also a juicier steak
> Bigger steaks are better
> A thin steak is not as juicy or tasty. You should consider sharing a bigger steak or taking the rest home before ordering a thin little steak. Roughly the perfect weight for each cut is noted below.
> Medium Rare is the way to eat a steak
> If you haven’t tried it that way, please do.

We generally have the five following cuts on hand:

Sirloin comes from the hip. It is tender but nearly fat free and a bit drier.
9 € / 100g  —  Minimum cut 400g  / Perfect cut 500 – 600g

Flank Steak.
Flank Steak is cut from the belly muscle. Roughly 1.5 – 2 cm thick. This steak is slighty fatty, juicy and tender until medium. After medium this steak becomes tougher than a coffin nail.
9.50 € / 100g  —  Minimum cut 250g  / Perfect cut 300 – 400g

NY Strip.
New York Strip a.k.a. the big side of the t-bone. Fattier than a filet, leaner than a rib. Meaty and juicy like a high-priced southern hooker.
10 € / 100g  —  Minimum cut 400g  / Perfect cut 500 – 600g

Ribeye Steak.
Cut from the back under the rib. By far the steak with the most flavor.  Tender and juicy due to the serious marbling and fat content.  The cook’s favorite. Can at times be VERY FATTY.
10.50 € / 100g  —  Minimum cut 400g  / Perfect cut 500 – 600g

The American filet has a nice amount of marbling giving it flavor that other filets do not have. Very tender if eaten medium rare, very juicy.  This steak should not and will not be cooked more than medium.
17 € / 100g  —  Minimum cut 250g  / Perfect cut 300 – 400g
