A team that runs a popular restaurant in Milton just debuted its newest project in Brookline. Prairie Fire officially opened its doors on Friday, September 1, under the direction of Brendan Joy and other members of the Steel & Rye team, bringing a menu of wood-fired dishes to 242 Harvard St. in Coolidge Corner.
The restaurant took over the former Lineage space, as previously reported, and when the project first came to light, the team promised “simple yet thoughtful food” with a focus on wood-fired cooking, fermenting, and brining.
Dishes at Prairie Fire fall into six categories: snacks, vegetables, salads, pizza, pasta, and sweets. Starters range from raw oysters to tuna carpaccio and chicken and pork meatballs, and vegetable options include fire-roasted eggplant and roasted baby potatoes. Pizza varieties include a traditional Margherita, plus fennel sausage and mushroom, while pastas range from squid ink campanelle to lemon gemelli.
Prairie Fire opens daily at 4:30 p.m., with dinner served until 10 p.m. and pizza available until 11 p.m. on weekdays and 12 a.m. on weekends.
