Best New Steakhouse
Critics, upstate: One of the hottest tables in Delaware belongs to Firebirds, the boutique Aspen-style chain that brought a Rocky Mountain lodge vibe to Christiana last year. Patrons pack the place nightly for cocktails and Firebirds’ signature steaks, which are thick and tender and charred perfectly. Tender filet mignon is one of the best around. Decorate it with blue cheese and bacon. The signature chile-rubbed Delmonico is intensely juicy and flavorful. Hickory and oak wood give the steaks that little something special.
