Charlotte, N.C. (Oct. 20, 2014) – Firebirds Wood Fired Grill, a polished casual restaurant that features classic American cuisine infused with bold flavors, fresh herbs and spices, opened its 35th location in Gainesville, Virginia. Specializing in aged steaks, fresh seafood, chicken and ribs seared over a wood fired grill, Firebirds plans to expand to new markets in 2015.
Dennis Thompson, cofounder of Lone Star Steakhouse & Saloon and an original owner of Fox and Hound Bar & Grill, and Doug Glendenning, former president of Lone Star, opened Firebirds Wood Fired Grill in 2000 in Charlotte, NC. Firebirds credits its success to providing a full-spectrum dining experience enhanced with local flavor.
“We have set the expectation high in every market with the belief that no detail is too small,” said CEO Mark Eason.
“This helps ensure that our guests may try something new, yet still receive a high quality dining experience. Our delicious cuisine, excellent service and warm ambiance keep guests coming back for more.”
Firebirds’ large selection of mouthwatering steaks are hand-cut onsite by a certified butcher and seared to perfection using authentic firewood that presents a local flavor. Guests may select from a robust lunch and dinner menu, a kids’ menu with items certified by National Restaurant Association’s Kids LiveWell program, a gluten-free menu or a variety of small plates.
Firebirds keeps the experience fresh by offering seasonal selections such as its upcoming Winter Features menu and Limited Time Offer wines, including Flor de Campo (Flowers of the Vineyard) Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The FIREBAR® hosts its own private label wines, local craft beers and a variety of libations.
The Firebirds experience goes far beyond exceptional food and drink with the belief that unparalleled dining starts from the moment guests arrive; they are greeted by friendly, knowledgeable staff, a warm ambiance and relaxed setting. After receiving extensive food and wine training, staff members partake in refinement sessions to continuously expand their expertise.
“Our 35th location is a true milestone that speaks volumes for our company, and we look forward to sharing the Firebirds’ experience with more guests in 2015 and beyond,” said Eason.
To celebrate the 35th location, Firebirds will feature an upcoming holiday gift card promotion – receive a $10Gift to You card with every $50 gift card purchase.
Firebirds is open Monday – Thursday from 11 a.m. – 10 p.m. and Friday – Saturday from 11 a.m. – 11 p.m. Guests can also enjoy half priced appetizers and drink specials from the FIREBAR® weekdays from 4 – 6:30 p.m. at the bar and outdoor patio. In addition, guests can register for Firebirds’ E-Club to be the first to learn about upcoming events, promotions, new menu items and exclusive offers.
