Drop by the Moorestown Mall and you'll not only notice a new facelift for the popular mall but a new restaurant: the Shawmut-built Firebirds Wood Fired Grill. The upscale casual chain is expanding up and down the East Coast and chose Shawmut to partner with them on their first New Jersey location.

So what makes the 6,500 square foot, 250-seat restaurant a must-try destination? Along with the incredible dishes, Firebirds features an exhibition kitchen, indoor stone fireplace, outdoor patio, wine wall, and the 'FIREBAR' which showcases a waterfall display of colorful bottles.

Despite working within a busy mall environment (and while other projects were also under construction), the restaurant was completed in just sixteen weeks. "The hard work and professionalism of the entire Shawmut Team was evident throughout the job," said Gerald Pulsinelli, VP of Restaurant Development at Firebirds. "Being our first restaurant in NJ, we had some curve balls thrown at us but the Shawmut Team was able to work through them while still keeping our schedule on track."

We look forward to continuing our partnership with Firebirds as we begin work on their new Orlando project.
