American cuisine with seasonal menu items is what you will find on the menu at the new Firewood restaurant in Park City. Most dishes are prepared over open flame using woods selected by the chef- like cedar, cherry and maple.  Firewood has an awesome, custom-made open flame grill with five separate cooking stations, and with the open kitchen design, patrons can watch their foods being prepared behind glass.

Owner and Chef John Murcko said in a press release, “Open flame cooking is a passion of mine and I have enjoyed sharing this unique dining style with my family around the holidays for many years. I know Firewood guests will love the rich flavors, nuanced variety in the entrees and the truly multi-sensory culinary experience.  It’s an honor to open a restaurant on Main Street and I look forward to serving my family and friends in the best mountain town in the world.”

The restaurant space has been completely remodeled and has a warm, industrial warehouse feel. Walls are structured with reclaimed bricks and timbers and 2 large wind mill fans adorn the ceiling. Wood tables are surrounded by leather chairs, and downstairs in the quaint Nickel Bar, which really is comprised of all nickels on the bar top, you can enjoy a drink or small plates while you either wait for your table or just visit the bar itself.

I attended one of the restaurants soft openings and I was very impressed with both the food and the space. The service was great, and the food was fantastic and plated beautifully.
