Tasting Tysons: Dinner at Wildfire

Classic Manhattan at Wildfire Tysons
By Claire Goldman

Most of us in the DMV have watched in awe as condos, offices, hotels and even a metro station have risen up from the ground in Tysons Corner, VA.  Tysons has always been a shopping destination but now the area is reinventing itself as a destination for DC area diners.

A great example of the melding of two of my favorite things (shopping and dining) is Wildfire, a 1940s themed steak and seafood restaurant located within the designer-lined walls of Tysons Galleria. With locations in Illinois, Minnesota and McLean, VA, Wildfire sets the mood with deep leather banquets and jazz music but has all the comforts of modern day.

Start with a cocktail!

Appetizers range from spinach & artichoke fondue to mussels.

Wildfire prides itself on it's chops and steaks.  With any kind of cut you could want, as well as an array of crusts for steaks, there's something for every steak lover.

Wildfire's dessert tray is a show stopper.  As you watch it move around the room throughout the night, you cannot resist ending your meal with a sweet treat.
