Universal Orlando is set to debut its next original concept dining experience this summer. BigFire is the replacement for Emeril’s which closed last summer and has been under construction with no details until now.
Bigfire is an all-new, full-service restaurant that will bring a specially created menu and a highly-themed environment directly to guests at Universal CityWalk and take open fire cooking to a whole new level.
Bigfire will feature unique theming designed to make guests feel as though they have stepped into a grand lakeside lodge, creating an atmosphere reminiscent of summers spent by the water.
The two-story venue will feature warm modern surroundings, from a cozy fireplace to cast iron and wood design elements mixed with nostalgic camp lanterns and oversized plaid blankets. As guests step onto the outside patio, they will be greeted with twinkling lights, comfortable seating and lawn games for the entire family to enjoy.
At the heart of the venue will be a custom wood fire grill that will allow guests to see their meal being prepared from anywhere in the restaurant. For the first time at Universal Orlando, each dish will be expertly paired with the perfect type of wood to bring out the smoky goodness in each bite. From Cherrywood to Pecanwood and more, the pairings will add bold flavors to the American classic dishes and unique entrees, including
- Signature bison burger
- Coffee, chili and cocoa rubbed top sirloin
- Delectable freshwater trout,
- Mouth-watering smoked salads
and much more.
Bigfire will be another example of what happens when the Universal Creative team that designs world-class theme park attractions partners with Universal’s award-winning culinary team to create incredible dining experiences for guests. When it opens, Bigfire will become the next highly-themed, original concept restaurant at CityWalk
