Owner Norris Jordan, who with his wife Debbie Jordan also own the Happy Rooster on the corner of 16th and Sansom streets in Philadelphia, live in the Rittenhouse neighborhood mere blocks from Lou Bird’s with their 10­ year ­old daughter, Lexi. Norris Jordan, the owner of WNJ Capital by day, served as designer for the overhauled space and created a restaurant with the neighborhood in mind. The Jordans' desire is to provide a casual but elevated and elegant environment, in a friendly, social, and comfortable setting.
