The holidays are here and for many of us the season is synonymous with large family gatherings, great food, and of course lots of cooking. The frenzy of the season is enough to deal with–why not relax and let someone else do the cooking? Firebirds, the Charlotte, North Carolina-based casual restaurant group is up to the task with its menu of classic American, wood-fired entrees. Open for lunch and dinner, Firebirds features a varied selection of bold dishes prepared in-house, including hand-cut steaks, fresh seafood, chicken, and ribs–all seared over hickory, oak, or pecan wood, imparting a flavorful smokiness that has become the eatery’s signature.
This winter, a creative seasonal menu offers a blend of trendy ingredients like fresh baby kale, arugula, barley, Brussels sprouts, squash, basil and more. Popular dishes like the grilled scallops and superfoods salad (pictured above) offer a healthy alternative to heavy traditional dishes typically associated with holiday eating. Other menu items include braised short ribs with creamy Parmesan mashed potatoes, pan-roasted Brussels sprouts and butternut squash and house-smoked pastrami-spiced turkey breast focaccia sandwich with tomato soup–this is comfort food at its finest. The standout menu offers innovative takes on customary holiday eats and, as this season is the busiest time of the year to dine out, the new winter selections–along with seasonal cocktails, hot after-dinner drinks, and a new gift card promotion–are sure to light up the holidays.
Firebirds is generously sponsoring a $50 gift card giveaway to one lucky reader of The Palate Princess! The gift card is a great way to taste the new seasonal menu and sample the bold flavors of unique dishes. To find a Firebirds Wood Fired Grill near you, click here.
