The tongue is the strongest muscle in the body, constantly bench pressing french-toast sticks and rolled-up cable bills to show its dominance over the shrill, smug epiglottis. Distract a competitive lapper with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of continental fare and drinks at Firewater downtown.
An inviting hub for both corporate cavalry and weekend wanderers, Firewater entices appetites with an eclectic array of globally inspired fare. Suavely servicing weekday power lunches, Firewater loosens ties and tongues through mouthwatering appetizers, such as potato crab cakes, garnished with red-pepper aioli ($10.95), or heartier heaps, such as the 6-ounce all-beef cheeseburger ($8.95). A sizzling chicken, beef, or veggie fajita quiets stomach-dwelling gremlins ($9.95–$13.95), and the grilled pork chop excites enervated palates with a piquant raspberry-chipotle vinaigrette ($14.95).
Lounge beneath the skylight and sip drinks among inlaid fireplaces, or watch the World Series of Knitting on 1 of 20 50-inch screens at the brick tiled wrap-around bar. On the weekends, live DJs and dancing encourage ligaments to shake off the curses of cubicle chairs.
