With an appealing edge over the other restaurants in town, Fireside Pies Dallas specializes in crispy, feathery light pies and wood-fired pizzas. Adopting age-old traditional pie-making methods and top-notch ingredients, Fireside maintains its position as one of the best dining spots in town.
Fireside's hand-made pies, all pieced together from scratch with natural condiments and ingredients, are baked in a custom-made pecan wood fired oven. These special pie-making techniques are what keep Fireside at the leading front of its industry. Curious customers can even sit by the bar and get a first-hand look at how these pies are artistically crafted and then dished out, served hot and steamy to your table.
Besides sticking to centuries-old tradition, the ingredients that Fireside use are crème de la crème - top produce in the market. Some of the ingredients, including the Parmesan cheese and the prosciutto are brought in all the way from Italy. You can't go wrong with such authentic fare.
Everything else is handmade - even the cheese that has helped Fireside Pies Dallas win several culinary awards. Exactly hand crafted the way it used to be made in Europe since yesteryears, the in-house cheese bears fruits to the restaurant's hard work in producing only the best of the best. Other hand-made condiments include the meatballs, vinaigrette and several salad dressings.
Let's don't forget how creative the restaurant menu is: for starters, you will be treated to sumptuous appetizers in the likes of Alaskan snow crab claws in thick garlicky lemon butter, accompanied by toasted Reggiano cheese bruschetta ($14).
If that isn't enough to get a wow from you, then wait till you try the hot and crumbled Jimmy's spicy Italian sausage pie soaked in roasted garlic-herb whipped Ricotta & chopped cherry tomatoes ($14). Choose from a long list of outrageously delicious and golden crispy pies - all of them roasted in strong fire and then draped with a fire-roasted sauce enhanced by a four-cheese mixture.
To end your meal, how about the gooey triple chocolate brownie topped with Morello cherry sauce ($6)? Don't they all sound extremely tempting? The seductive names are not just an exaggeration. When the dishes are served to your table, you will know what I mean.
Its wide range of beverages is all too extravagant. Whether you are celebrating a special occasion or just enjoying food and drinks with friends, you will be glad to find creative drinks on its list. If you are in a group, order a pitch of triple pear margarita or authentic red passion sangria to share!
Although the menu can be a little pricey, you have to keep in mind that the dishes are served in generous portions and a lot of work has been put into producing each dish. From hand-made dough to roasting it in the wood fired oven, every single step to creating a pie at Fireside involves attention and effort.
With such attractive gastronomy on its menu, Fireside's restaurant design has to be equally alluring for diners to tuck into their meals in the comfort of a cozy and warm setting. The entire restaurant is constructed out of polished wooden planks, giving the feel of an alpine lodge where you sit before a fireplace and enjoy the delicacies in front of you. Custom-made seating booths give both privacy and warmth. The use of natural materials like cedar and copper give Fireside Pies Dallas a true country feel you just don't want to stop enjoying.
