Food & Fire BBQ Taphouse Announces Grand Opening in Middletown, NY

– Authentic BBQ Destination Set to Ignite Taste Buds at the Galleria at Crystal Run-

Middletown, NY — Food & Fire BBQ Taphouse, a world-class BBQ establishment known for its authentic BBQ and craft beer combination, is excited to announce its upcoming Grand Opening. This highly anticipated expansion will bring Food & Fire’s exceptional service, delicious food, and amazing atmosphere to its new location in Middletown, NY! In addition to authentic “low and slow” BBQ they will be featuring an array of American-style food favorites, including hand-crafted sandwiches, signature steaks and entrees, mouthwatering homemade side dishes, and so much more for those who crave a taste of southern flair.

Founded in Johnson City, NY, Food & Fire BBQ Taphouse is the culmination of a dream shared by co-owners Jose Moreira, Dan Polhamus, and Jeff Tiderencel. Since its inception, this hometown favorite has garnered a substantial following in the Binghamton, NY and Scranton, PA markets.

The newest Food & Fire Middletown location, due to open inside the Galleria at Crystal Run, will ignite the same spirit and dedication that has made the Food & Fire brand a cherished favorite for nearly 10 years. Guests will experience a family-friendly, welcoming environment boasting a modern twist to the typical rustic BBQ restaurant look and feel, while also providing the option for outdoor seating during the warmer months.

As the grand opening date approaches, Food & Fire invites the community to join in the excitement and anticipation as we open our doors on our new restaurant, a place where friends, families, and BBQ enthusiasts alike will come together to celebrate this new milestone.

The Food & Fire ownership team is appreciative of the warm welcome they have received so far. As owner Jeff Tiderencel noted, “we come from a close-knit community in the Binghamton, NY area, and we are extremely happy to be able to bring our brand’s third location to the Middletown market.  After looking at several different locations, we felt Middletown represented the same hometown values that we’ve experienced in our other markets.  We look forward to being active, contributing members of the Middletown community.”

“We have seen an outstanding response from the community since announcing the addition of Food & Fire BBQ Taphouse to the center,” said Eric Price, General Manager at Galleria at Crystal Run. “We are looking forward to the opening date and cannot wait to welcome the Food & Fire family to Galleria at Crystal Run.”
