Firebirds opens in 27 days… and counting

If you’ve been out to the Waterfront at 13th and Webb lately, you might have noticed the fancy new restaurant that’s almost finished.

Firebirds Wood Fired Grill will, according to the countdown clock on its website, open in 27 days, which by my calculations is Monday, Oct. 7.

The restaurant chain was started Wichitan and Lone Star Steakhouse founder Dennis Thompson and some partners, and it will serve steaks and other wood-fired dishes such as fish, seafood, chicken, burgers. I’m particularly interested in the lobster spinach queso and crab cake salad I saw listed on the online menu.

Firebirds will be open for both lunch and dinner.
