Campfire, located inside the designated Stella Hotel in Bryan, has been faced with its own unique obstacles for the last year.
“Some may feel a little hesitant to go out to a restaurant that’s in a hotel, so that’s something we always a battle, and with COVID when it first began it was a battle for us,” says Erica Alcala, PR Manager for the Stella & Campfire.
For the month of February, they have been participating in Destination Bryan’s Restaurant Month in an effort to get more people out to local eateries in the city.
From their seven days a week brunch menu to dinner, Campfire offers a one-of-a-kind dining experience for residents and visitors of Bryan-College Station.
“That’s been one of the great things about Destination Bryan and about what they’re doing with restaurant month, is that it gives a great opportunity to be able to know and explore all these different types of restaurants that are in our area,” says Alcala.
From their restaurant month’s special tequila braised short rib, to their fan-favorite s’more dessert, Campfire has something for everyone.
“There’s such an array of things that you are not going to find just anywhere else. There are some of the great comfort food staples that are here too, so there is something for everyone,” says Alcala.
And while restaurants continue to adapt, Campfire says making sure their guests feel safe and enjoy their experience is a top priority.
“It was one of those things that I think with everyone when this all came to fruition last year, everyone had to pivot and look to see how things were going to change and how to make sure all of our guests that stepped in felt comfortable,” says Alcala.
Engel & Völkers, the main sponsor of Restaurant Month, will be donating $1 to the Brazos Valley Food Bank up to $1000 for each check-in at the 32 participating restaurants when customers use the Bryan Restaurant Month Pass.
25 News KRHD has also pledged to make a $1000 donation to the Brazos Valley Food Bank this month.
“When we saw the city of Bryan coming together to support local restaurants and the local food bank, we knew this was something we would love to support,” says 25 News VP & General Manager, Adam Chase. “2020 was a hard year for all of us, and we hope this donation will help those in the Brazos Valley have a better start to 2021.”
Campfire is open every day for Brunch and open for dinner Tuesday through Saturday.
