FIREBIRDS WOOD FIRED GRILL TO OPEN SEPTEMBER 5TH AT STREETS OF ST. CHARLES
(Peoria, IL, September 2, 2016) – Streets of St. Charles will be the home of the 40th location in the United States for Firebirds Wood Fired Grill, which is scheduled to open to the public on Monday September 5, 2016. This is the first Firebirds to locate in the St. Louis Metropolitan area.
Firebirds specializes in authentic wood-fired steaks and seafood entrees. Guests will enjoy a polished-casual atmosphere with upscale dining at a modest price. Happy hour at Firebirds will take place Monday through Friday from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the FIREBAR® or on the patio. The St. Charles location will be led by General Manager Joe Kennedy.
“We look forward to sharing Firebirds’ warm ambiance and signature bold flavors with the St. Charles community,” said Kennedy. “Our relaxing and intimate dining room setting is perfect for enjoying a cozy meal with friends and family, a romantic fireside dinner with that special someone or unwinding after a long week.”
Firebirds is located at 1501 Beale Street, next to PF Chang’s. A 6,615 square foot modern, yet rustic building was constructed to serve as a welcome and casual space for guests. The interior features an exhibition kitchen, wine wall, indoor stone fireplace, dark woods, vivid colors, comfortable seating and its own FIREBAR® that boasts a beautiful waterfall display of colorful bottles.
“When the community learned that a new restaurant was coming to Streets of St. Charles, we immediately received great feedback and excited anticipation of its opening,” said Christopher West, Cullinan Partner and Chief Operating Officer. “We’ve become known for bringing new dining experiences to town. Firebirds now joins others such as Prasino and Tucano’s, who chose Streets of St. Charles as their first locations in the St. Louis area. Visitors continue to be drawn to experience these restaurants, as well as the locally-owned shops and businesses on the property.”
Firebirds follows the September 1st opening of Orangetheory Fitness and Think Pink Nail & Spa, as well as the recent openings of PF Chang’s and Sole & Blues.
