Bigfire restaurant to replace former Emeril’s Orlando at Universal Orlando Resort

This summer, guests can enjoy a relaxing night out with open-fire cooking at Bigfire, the newest themed restaurant to come to Universal CityWalk.

Universal Orlando has officially announced the replacement for the former Emeril’s Orlando.

The two-story, full-service restaurant is the replacement for Emeril’s Orlando, which closed last summer. The restaurant will feature warm, modern surroundings, including a fireplace, oversized plaid blankets, and cast iron elements. On the outdoor patio, guests can warm up by the fire pit or play lawn games.

Menu items include the Bigfire bison burger, chili and cocoa rubbed steak, freshwater trout, and smoked salads. Dessert includes the classic Baked Alaska, and one of the most popular fireside treats – s’mores.
