Dining Room at Firefly, Washington, DC

< Previous | Next > 

It's no wonder Firefly is a popular dining spot among young couples in Washington, D.C. The bar and dining areas are anchored by a large tree trunk decorated with lanterns, while outside is a bench swing built for two (an ideal spot to linger after the meal). Dig in to comforting Southern fare, such as chicken fried oysters, shrimp and grits, and ice cream sandwiches for dessert. Cocktails range from classics to house creations, such as the Horns 'n' Halos spiked with ancho chile liqueur.
