Chefs send pizzas, steaks, and a bevy of seared entrees from Firepit City Grill's wood-fire grill to tables and booths lining the chic bar-style interior. Chefs crisp pizzas and flatbreads on the grill, assembling custom-ordered ingredient combinations or preparing specialties such as the Greek Town flatbread, strewn with feta and gyro meat and then topped with lettuce, tomatoes, and tzatziki sauce ($10). Barbecue sauce smothers the Firepit Rack o' Baby Backs, a tender row of ribs ready to be tickled into submission ($15.50/half, $21.50/full). Sandwiches and wraps package grilled goodies in layers of bread, and the grilled halibut eschews the bun for a miso glaze and the companionship of swiss chard, rice, and sake butter ($24).
