Bigfire at Universal CityWalk Orlando

What is Bigfire?

A giant, custom-made wood-fire grill is situated in the very heart of Bigfire, allowing guests to see the food cooked right in front of their eyes. But this dominating feature also sets the stage for the entire dining experience; “fire-kissed” American fare, from steaks and burgers to salmon avocado toast, 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 each dish on the menu so that the smoked flavor is always just right.

Where is Bigfire located?

At Universal CityWalk Orlando.

What’s the story behind Bigfire?

For the full scoop on Bigfire’s backstory, please see our complete write-up.

Bigfire – theming

Conceived in conjunction with Universal’s theme-park designers, just as the impeccable Toothsome Chocolate Emporium and Savory Feast Kitchen was, Bigfire consists of small touches throughout, making this one of the most detailed venues at CityWalk (even if that theming is meant to be more subtle than bold). The restaurant is designed to feel like a grand lakeside lodge, employing warm colors, cast-iron and wood accents, retro camp lanterns, a cozy fireplace inside, and a fire pit outside in order to pull off the effect. 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.

What was Bigfire’s opening date?

June 26, 2019

Note that three different types of wood – cherry, pecan, and oak – are paired with many of the dishes (and, even, some drinks) to increase their flavor profiles.
