Fireside, named for the warm fire that greets you just before entering, is a postmodern American steakhouse, hinting at familiar foods while engaging a modernist flirtation that keeps the menu both approachable and sophisticated, transitioning with seasonal and inter-seasonal changes.
Passing through an immense set of grand entry doors, tucked away in the Evergreen mall, Fireside’s dining room opens up into a large, bi-level, modern space. Inside, vaulted ceilings and warm grained wood, accented with copper, reflect in design the establishment’s culinary style and direction, to provide the patron with a dinner experience that is both elegant and rustic.
Working in Chicago, Fireside’s Chef, Alexander Remer, discovered that the kitchen could be more than a utilitarian space for cooking. He saw it as a working studio; spaces full of energy and disciplined creativity, where you can work to make fantastic things. Having cooked in a broad array of kitchens, his own style, and Fireside’s culinary direction today, is to cook with a wide variety of fresh and unexpected ingredients, most all of which could be enjoyed on their own
Fireside items include:
The Meat Pizza, deep dish or thin crust, and its varying cousins.
Beer battered or pan seared, duck fingers.
Steak Salad Sloatsburg
Dry aged champagne apple glazed, cured prime rib ribeye steak, the best of both worlds.
Monday’s and Tuesday’s beer and burger pairing.
Cocktails, beer and wine available as are, weekly specials and pairings. Desserts, made in house, are rich and satisfying, uniquely retro in portion and flare. Tempering classic with new, secreted away with modest sophistication, Fireside warrants a visit anytime.
