Along with salads and soups, Bonfire serves its meat in the form of sandwiches and sliders. Philly short ribs slide off the skewer moist and meaty and into a crusty bun filled with grilled peppers and caramelized onions, and three smoked chicken and artichoke sliders, a no-brainer as a crowd favorite, mix grilled perfection with juicy charred tomatoes, creamy avocado mayo, and a lemon-pepper vinaigrette between slightly sweet buns.
On the non-meat side (save for the few pieces of Tenderbelly bacon), take a pass on the Bonfire chopped salad. Overdressed, peppery, and crunch-less, it was one of the restaurant's few disappointments.
For the most part — save for super-busy nights, when a question about the menu goes unanswered or a dirty dish is left on the table for too long — service is solid and friendly. Undoubtedly, you'll be asked about dessert, and though the offerings are few and fairly forgettable (s'mores and cookies), there is one, your server will tell you, that towers above the others: the chocolate bread pudding and banana ice cream.
