Firelake Grill Opens in Tenleytown

4200 Wisconsin Avenue, NW

Thanks to a couple of readers for writing in that Firelake Grill has now opened in the former Ruby Tuesday space at Van Ness and Wisconsin Ave, NW.

One reader writes:

“FIRELAKE opened: good food, nice atmosphere, and friendly staff. ONE BIG PROBLEM: price points too high!”

Anyone else stop by?

  • ONE BIG PROBLEM: price points too high!”

    sounds like, oh….everywhere in DC?

  • Haven’t been there yet but what a disappointment. Excluding students, this neighborhood is generally not a destination so it needs to draw from local residents. This location is not particularly attractive. It’s best known for McDonald’s and Johnson’s Garden Center. Meanwhile, the success of Guapos down the road shows that there’s a demand for moderately priced food in a relaxed atmosphere. Guapos is packed despite serving mediocre food. I wish it luck though.

  • Can someone explain to me the difference between prices and price points?

  • So it’s the “Fire Lake Grill” according to the restaurant’s sign. But the restaurant’s “website” says “FireLake” and “Firelake.” If they can’t even get THAT right…

  • I wonder if it’s named after the Bob Seger song.
