I ordered the chicken confit as an entree, which was a bone in chicken thigh served over gnocchi with a delicious savory sauce. I loved the torn potatoes (almost like potato skins), especially dipped in the broth from the chicken. The bf enjoyed his sticky pork ribs and watermelon.

For dessert we shared the vanilla mousse with marinated peaches and peach sorbet. It was a nice light dessert, and a perfect way to end the meal.

Overall the meal at Red Bird was excellent, and exactly what I would have expected based on my experiences at The Franklin. It's well worth the short drive to Waltham, and I will definitley be back.
