Veteran chef Jeff Mattia, along with Chef de Cuisine Justin Cameron, showcases his passion for primitive cooking techniques fused with classic steakhouse precision to deliver a Southern-inspired dining experience.
As its name indicates, Pyre's ingredients are wood-fired, from the classic Texas-rub smoked beef brisket, hanger steak or Cantonese glazed pork ribs to the filet mignon, ribeye, Gulf fish and wagyu beef burgers. The family-style, shareable plates menu includes cured bacon with corn succotash and jalapeno hush puppies, spiced lamb ribs with a Middle Eastern flair, smoked duck hummus, wood fired oysters and more.
Don't let the aromas of grilled and smoked meats fool you: Pyre's salads are out of this world. Fresh & light options include a kale salad with roasted apples, bourbon raisins and pecans, Parrilla beet salad with whipped feta and arugula, wood-roasted stone fruit salad with frisée lettuce, bleu cheese and pralines and BLT salad featuring roasted farmers market tomatoes and local lettuces.
Open Monday through Saturday for lunch and dinner, plus brunch on Sundays. Happy Hour is 3-6:30pm Tuesday through Friday and features daiquiris, craft cocktails and local beers, plus shared plate specials until 5pm. Dine inside in a cozy booth or table, or outside on the shady patio. Online reservations available through Open Table.
