Firebirds Wood Fired Grill Restaurant Review:

About the restaurant & décor: Part of an ever-expanding American-focused restaurant group, Firebirds Wood Fired Grill in Gaithersburg sits at the edge of a burgeoning shopping center-housing development, thus assuring itself a steady flow of patrons. As for the setting itself, it is American country, with plenty of stone forming the interior walls and one of them devoted to wine bottles, presumably ready for pouring. Otherwise, expect dark woods, from the banquettes to the tables.

Likes: Coconut shrimp.
Dislikes: None.

Food & Drinks: Lunchtime can be busy, for folks come in for the expansive menu choices. Plan to fill up on such appetizers as the jalapeño deviled eggs and the coconut shrimp with tortilla slaw and mango habanero chutney. Perhaps you can call it a day here, but you may want to at least have one of the sandwiches, such as the Durango burger with heaps of jalapeño jack cheese and fried onions, or opt for one of five steaks. Consider enjoying the mahi tacos or other non-beef mains, too. Dinnertime brings elegant entrées, such as prime rib and filet mignon, but patrons can select from seafood or chicken meals as well, even the aforementioned coconut shrimp. Kids' and gluten-free menus plus munchies for after-hours are available. Be sure to save room for at least two desserts: crème brûlée cheesecake and Key lime pie. There are plenty of cocktail and wine options to round out the dining experience.
