Thursday, June 13, 2013

Officials at Hamilton Place announced a new upscale casual dining restaurant to open in the former Petco location early next year.  Firebirds is best known for their "cozy, intimate settings, infused with tantalizing wood-fired aromas."  

The theme is based around steaks, but they will also serve a variety of wood fired specialty entrees including chicken and fish using a combination of flavors to create a unique style of American cuisine, officials said.  

The company currently operates 24 restaurants with plans to open eight more this year.

 The 6,800 square feet Hamilton Corner location will begin construction in August and plans to open in the spring of 2014. 

Firebirds Wood Fired Grill features wood-fired dishes, with a southwestern flair.   “Firebirds is complementary to other Hamilton Place establishments such as P.F. Chang’s, Abuelos and Bonefish Grill,” stated Dan Wolfe, General Manager for Hamilton Place.  “It fits great with the restaurant selection we already have, plus Firebirds has a terrific lunch menu as well.”
