    You can't go wrong with anything on the menu. If you like blue cheese and Ruebens, then the blue cheese rueben is a must.

    I order from Blackbird because they can deliver a good lunch when I'm too busy to get out. The soups are always super-delicious; my favorite is the butternut squash. And they deliver in 20-30 min.

    Ask for either "something lunchy" or "something dinnery," let them know of you have any allergies and then let them whip up something magical! The best way to order!

    Hard to go wrong here, but try the Roasted Veggie on Pretzel Roll w/Goat Cheese. Redefines the sandwich for others to follow. Use a fork and enjoy it like a meal.

    My perfect Blackbird visit. An Apple Chai with a shot of amaretto for a drink, and a roast beef with Swiss on a pretzel roll bun. Easily fixes anything a bad day could throw at you.
