Eat By Numbers: Wildfire

When you dine out, you might think about the ingredients that go into your food, but you probably don’t think about all the numbers that make your meal happen. Restaurants are filled with interesting figures that might not be apparent when you bite into an enticing entrée or take a sip of a signature cocktail, but they’re all around you.

This week, we take a trip out to surf and turf loving Chicago import Wildfire, which makes its home in Tysons Galleria. The supersized restaurant serves equally prodigious portions, so we found out just how many pounds of beef and potatoes they use every week. And since we were in the mood to decompress, we also asked how many beers, wines, and martinis they have on hand for liquid therapy sessions.
