With your apron and tongs inhabited by the evil spirits of spilled sauces and toasted buns, grilling at home has become both time-consuming and spooky. Get quality cuisine without interference from crazed grilling-ware with today's Groupon: for $19, you get $40 worth of Southern eating at Fire, a casual eatery in Mountain Brook.
Fire's menu is replete with selections from the pantheon of Southern flavor. Start your meal with fried gulf oysters with french fries and horseradish cream ($13) before spelunking into your stomach cave and inquiring if it would prefer chicken and crawfish ($19) or crab cakes with sautéed corn, peppers, cherry tomatoes, and charred tomato vinaigrette ($18). To soothe your mouth with a soulful classic, opt for the shrimp and grits, grilled to tenderness and loving care and served with green beans and buerre blanc ($20). Dessertophiles will breathe a sigh of deliciousness after eyeing the $8 dessert menu, featuring apple fritters and warm espresso brownies.
Fire's friendly service and welcoming atmosphere keep the dining experiences casual, satisfying, and hearty. The chef, Steve Luther, aims to make the restaurant Birmingham’s definitive “neighborhood bar and grill.” The dining room, which is decked out with white tablecloths and warm paint hues, is lit by warm pendant lights that glow warmly like fireflies trapped inside an eggshell.
