Firebirds a nice east side addition

leXi3.SlMa.80I hadn’t heard much about Firebirds Wood Fired Grill, the fancy new “casual upscale” restaurant that opened in the Waterfront last fall, and that left me a little concerned.

But I needn’t be. Apparently, I just need more east side friends because they were packed into that place when I finally made it out. I liked Firebirds, and I loved its ¬†rib eye.

Read my review, which was published in today’s Go! section. (And let me know if you’ve been and what you think.)

BONUS: The Go! section had space for two reviews today, so we also have a look at Merle’s Place, the little bar on Seneca that was one of the first places I ever visited in Wichita. It was written¬†by Wichita Eagle Dining Panel member Ashley Watkins.
