Effective today, December 28, Prairie Fire Grille is closed.
This was already the second life for the restaurant in Greystone, which combined Southwest and Southern influences in a casual white tablecloth atmosphere. The restaurant was originally opened in 2002 by Arman Delorenz, who also owned several other area restaurants, including Nonna Rose, Crepes Egg-Seteran and Original Joe's, but filed for bankruptcy in 2005. Prairie Fire Grille, Original Joe's and Nonna's reopened under new ownership, but Original Joe's was the first to go, followed by Nonna's last summer, and now Prairie Fire.
According to the e-mail sent out to its customer mailing list, there will be a new restaurant concept opening some time in February 2009.
