Firefly Restaurant Review

: With an edginess that seems fitting for a restaurant in this boutique hotel domain, the contemporary menu appeals to all ages and to all taste buds, with such appetizers as chopped chicken liver, old-timey stuffed hard-boiled eggs (a must-order dish), and matzoh ball soup. Follow with a dandy roasted organic chicken and a nine-hour marinated pork shoulder with grits as entrées. If you are lucky, the chef showcases his whimsical take on that New York favorite, a classic Reuben sandwich, only this version features house-cured meat which is mounded on the bread with sauerkraut. Otherwise, you'll cheer with his hefty half-pound burger, a winning sandwich topped with melted cheese. The abbreviated dessert menu includes several dishes featuring fruit, sundaes, and a selection of artisanal cheeses. It’s a good destination for casual neighborhood dining.
