The properties currently known as the Jaybird’s Inn and Restaurant were purchased in October 2018 by Ash Properties with plans to create an upscale Boutique Inn at the corner of State Road 16 and US Highway 1.
The restaurant has reopened as The New Orleans Kitchen and Banquet Restaurant featuring Cajun Cuisine.
Michael Cunningham has been named General Manager of the Inn and Rania Alabsa is Owner/Manager of The New Orleans Kitchen and Banquet Restaurant.
Over the next 60 days many changes are planned at the site including rebranding to the Flagler Inn of St. Augustine, new landscaping, painting, new smart phone compatible guestroom locks, upgraded TV and wifi and well as other interior improvements.
The restaurant will host a daily breakfast buffet from 7-10am and are planning several special events such as a Mardi Gras Party and a Sunday Live Jazz Brunch.
The restaurant is also announcing a new Happy Hour 4-6pm daily with 2 for 1 draft, house wine and well cocktails.
