Oklahoma Location September 12 in Oklahoma City
Restaurant brings its classic American fare with bold flavors to the city
OKLAHOMA CITY (September 14, 2018) – Known for its scratch kitchen, warm hospitality and classic American cuisine infused with bold flavors, fresh herbs and spices, Firebirds Wood Fired Grill opened Wednesday, Sept. 12, at the Chisholm Creek development just south of the John Kilpatrick Turnpike and West Memorial Road in Oklahoma City. Firebirds specializes in hand-cut aged steaks, fresh seafood, chicken and ribs seared over an authentic wood-fired grill.
“For our first Oklahoma location, we could not think of a better place than Oklahoma City,” said CEO Mark Eason. “Firebirds’ vibrant, energetic atmosphere and bold, creative flavors are a perfect fit for this market.”
Firebirds offers a wide variety of menu selections, including its signature Aged Ribeye, Filet Mignon, Wood Grilled Salmon, Durango Burger, Grilled Shrimp & Strawberry Salad, Lobster Spinach Queso and Creme Brulée Cheesecake. The Kids Menu offers healthy options certified by the National Restaurant Association’s Kids LiveWell program. Firebirds also offers gluten-sensitive menu items, such as Grilled Tenderloin Salad, Beef Filet Kabob, Wood Grilled Salmon and Parmesan Mashed Potatoes.
In addition, the award-winning FIREBAR® boasts an extensive selection of wines, including two private Firebirds’ labels, craft beers and specialty cocktails, such as the Double Black Diamond Martini® infused with fresh pineapple. The FIREBAR® also serves seasonal cocktails. Firebirds offers unique and refreshing non-alcoholic drinks as well, such as the Strawberry Basil Cooler and Wild Berry Ginger Craft Soda.
The Oklahoma City Firebirds will feature the restaurant’s energetic design concept, which breaks from the traditional darker steakhouse look while still offering guests the warm and inviting atmosphere for which Firebirds is known. Modern design and décor include light-colored woods, charred black brick, floor-to-ceiling windows, exposed wood, contemporary light fixtures, abstract artworks and pops of teal to complement Firebirds’ signature red and orange. The open concept gives guests views of the exhibition kitchen, wood-fired grill, award-winning FIREBAR® and lounge. Additionally, guests can enjoy their meals and drinks on a comfortable, enclosable patio perfect for any season.
To show its appreciation for Oklahoma’s local heroes, Firebirds invited local first responders to the restaurant for a complimentary lunch from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. on Patriot Day, Sept. 11.
Year-round, the new Firebirds restaurant will donate $1.25 for every glass of lemonade ordered in the restaurant to Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) to help fund childhood cancer research. Additionally, each June, the restaurant will participate in ALSF’s fundraiser, Lemonade Days, in which it will donate to the cause all proceeds from the sale of house-made lemonade at a stand by the front door. Nationwide, Firebirds has already raised more than $1.2 million for ALSF, one cup of lemonade at a time.
Firebirds will be open Sunday – Thursday 11 a.m. – 10 p.m. and Friday – Saturday 11 a.m. – 11 p.m. Additionally the restaurant will offer banquet services, catering, gift cards and online ordering for ToGo. Guests who register for Firebirds’ Inner Circle will be the first to hear about upcoming events, promotions, new menu items and exclusive offers.
