It’s lit! BIGFIRE has finally opened its doors and it’s ready to serve up a fun and unique dining experience that aims to draw modern inspiration from open-fire cooking and the nostalgia of long summer evenings.
Opening exclusively at Universal CityWalk at Universal Orlando Resort, the new destination restaurant aims to take you into lakeside summer house, creating an atmosphere reminiscent of relaxed evenings spent at the water’s edge, cooking and creating memories with friends and family. The two-story venue features natural design elements of mix and matched fabrics and seating, cast iron, twinkling lights, camp lanterns and more to complete the outdoor ambience inside the restaurant. And guests can enjoy one of the most popular fireside treats– s’mores – which they can prepare themselves right at their table.
Universal Orlando’s award-winning culinary team has crafted a menu takes open-fire cooking to a whole new level. At the heart of the venue is a custom wood fire grill where chefs prepare signature dishes inspired by the style of open-fire cooking – but with a significant and modern twist.
Chefs thoughtfully match each dish with wood species that have been chosen based on the flavor they exude, resulting in delectable entrees, sides, and even cocktails, that all infuse these smoky spirits. From Cherrywood to Pecanwood, the pairings add bold, delicious flavors to create elevated American fare, including a signature bison burger, New York sirloin strip, freshwater trout and more.
