Firefly Restaurant Review

: There's no sign to let you know that you've arrived at Firefly, so look for the vine-covered exterior of this Studio City hideaway. The front area is a sexy library lounge, with comfortable sofas and book-lined shelves, where you can sip craft cocktails from the bar. Meanwhile, the romantic garden patio, washed with candlelight and warmed by a flickering fireplace at night, lets guests slip into intimate cabanas or socialize on the terrace. The space opens out onto an ivy-draped hillside that provides a beautiful green backdrop, especially during Sunday brunch. Nibble on crispy olives or cheese and house-made charcuterie to start. Executive chef Perry Pollaci's menu continues with contemporary American fare like steelhead salmon with seasonal vegetables; pulled chicken with whipped polenta, escarole and pickled cherry; and filet mignon with smoked potato purée, broccolini and bordelaise. These main dishes can also be found on the three-course prix-fixe menu ($59), which concludes with butterscotch budino or coconut panna cotta. You'll find scrambles and brioche french toast during brunch, but our favorite is the Wagyu burger with bacon onion marmalade and Fourme d'Ambert cheese. The 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.
