Firefly Restaurant Review

: Firefly’s front area is a sexy library lounge with comfortable sofas, deep red walls and gilt-framed mirrors. The romantic garden patio, washed with candlelight and warmed by a flickering fireplace, lets guests slip into intimate cabanas or socialize on the terrace. To start, dishes have included a bright persimmon salad with burrata contrasting taste and texture, and a playful “K-Town BBQ” topping unctuous, savory rice porridge with tender hanger steak. We also recommend the seared foie gras with fresh black truffle, pickled and Luxardo cherries, quince and roasted pear. Standout mains include an unagi risotto, punctuated with shimeiji mushrooms, fermented black beans and a quail egg, as well as a buttery tenderloin with sweetbreads. (Note: Former chef Paul Shoemaker has left the restaurant.) A French/California focused wine list has many good options, among them select Napa Cabernets, and a pricey range of French bubbles plays well with the more luxe selections; it's nice to explore Sicily or Sardinia by the glass, too, and seasonal cocktails are refreshing. The assertive, satiny fromage blanc goat cheesecake makes an ideal finish.
