The Whistling Bird
Step through the doors of an unassuming building on Gilbert’s main street and into a tropical oasis offering upscale Caribbean cuisine. Owned by local restaurateurs Jessica and Erik Leitz of the BoomTown chain, Whistling Bird pairs fine dining with whimsical décor and reggae music playing quietly over the din of the dining room. You’ll feel like you’re at an island resort with dishes like jerked chicken paired with subtly sweet coconut rice and beans, lamb curry, and seared ahi tuna. Don’t skip out on the colorful tropical drinks like the Planters Rum Punch or share the adventurous Flaming Volcano Bowl with a date.
