THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Firecracker Restaurant Review

: This neighborhood favorite has a devoted following of hipsters, which unfortunately makes it hard to get a table. A soothing, pastel vision of late Imperial China, Firecracker's artful iron chairs and fanciful under-lit stools beckon to the clusters of hungry diners outside. The menu includes old standbys but also veers toward the unexpected. The delicious and well-known Yin Yang prawns bring to the table half an order of walnut-tossed prawns and half an order of spicy-hot tossed shrimp.
