About Embers of the Phoenix
There's 12th-century German stencil work above the bar at Embers of the Phoenix, and the old-fashioned elegance doesn't stop there. It extends to the eatery's building itself, dubbed the Bix Biederbecke building, which was built in 1912. The chefs aren't quite as old school as their environs, though. They whip up classic dishes, such as filet mignon topped with blue-cheese crumbles and the house specialty, made-from-scratch cheesecake, along with more modern ones, such as baked fish tacos. The bartenders' pours cover a similar range, from classic red wine to Carrot Cake and Monster Cookie martinis, the 2013 and 2014 winners of HAV Life Foundation's Martini Shake Off! dessert category.
