Bigfire – overview

A giant, custom-made wood-fire grill is situated in the very heart of Bigfire, allowing every guest to see her food cooked right in front of her eyes. But this dominating feature also sets the stage for the entire dining experience; expect “fire-kissed” American fare, from steaks and burgers to salmon avocado toast, that is presented in a warm, cozy atmosphere designed to conjure nostalgic feelings of summers by the water. One of the big draws here is the special type of wood, whether that be Cherrywood or Pecanwood, that is used to complement every dish on the menu so that the smoked flavor is always just right.

We really should pause for a moment on Bigfire’s theming, though. Conceived in conjunction with Universal’s theme-park designers, just as the impeccable Toothsome Chocolate Emporium and Savory Feast Kitchen was, the restaurant consists of small touches all throughout, making this one of the most-detailed venues at CityWalk (even if that theming is meant to be more subtle than bold, as Toothsome clearly is). Bigfire is designed to feel like a grand lakeside lodge, employing warm colors, cast-iron and wood accents, retro camp lanterns, and a cozy fireplace inside and a fire pit outside in order to pull the effect off. Every outdoor seat comes with a tableside s’mores kit, and there are also oversize plaid blankets and various lawn games strewn about out here, as well, sealing the family-on-summer-vacation deal.
