One of the restaurants that will serve diners in Peachtree Corners’ Town Center development will soon open its doors, but it will take a little longer than initially expected.

A spokesperson for Firebirds Wood Fired Grill, which had recently announced it will open in early December at the Town Center, told the Daily Post on Monday that the opening has been pushed back to mid-January.

It will be Firebirds’ second location in metro Atlanta, joining an existing location adjacent to the Avalon development in Alpharetta.

“The 6,500-square-foot restaurant will seat 232 guests and showcase Firebirds’ new lively design concept,” restaurant officials said in an announcement. “The Peachtree Corners location will feature this trending and modern design which provides a more open and inviting floor plan, enabling every guest a view of Firebirds’ signature exhibition kitchen, stone fireplace and award-winning FIREBAR.”

The restaurant’s website,, describes its cuisine as American food, seafood and steaks with average prices, including entrees, drinks, taxes and tips, ranging from $15 to $18 for lunch and $28 to $32 for dinner.

The restaurant recommends diners get reservations for meals, although they are not required, and it describes the dress code as “smart casual.” There will be happy hour drink specials from 4 to 7 p.m. on Mondays through Fridays on the patio and in the FIREBAR.

The restaurant’s general manager is Frankie Polanco and the chef is Donte Youmans.

Firebirds will join Hollywood Feed and Boardroom Salon for Men as the first businesses to open in the Town Center development, which is located behind Sprouts at the corner of Peachtree Parkway and Medlock Bridge Road.

Hollywood Feed has already opened — making it the first business to open in the development — and Boardroom Salon for Men is scheduled to open Dec. 7. Firebirds is located next to Hollywood Feed.

Other businesses have also been gearing up to open at the Town Center as well. Marlow’s Tavern, First Watch and My Salon Suite each have installed signage already for their respective spaces at the development.
