FIREFLY   ******                                       LOCATION: LAS VEGAS Website: http://www.fireflylv.com/index.html Firefly is a Spanish style Tapas Restaurant and Bar. Personally I find the décor very appealing: it’s all quite dimly lit, with beautiful artwork displayed on the walls (the paintings depict objects and scenes one would associate with the Spanish culture) and a lovely fireplace. There are normal and high tables available, as well as a fully licensed bar. This place usually offers a rather lively atmosphere, where you can combine excellent dining with a bit of a party vibe, with well chosen and upbeat music playing in the background loudly enough to be animating, but not so that the patrons would have to yell at each other in an attempt to communicate. A lot of guests dress up, but you can encounter pretty much any kind of attire from a little black dress to a cowboy hat, farming overalls and some rather colorful wellingtons (one can only hope that this particular outfit was being worn ironically). The thing to beware: their reputation does not go unnoticed and a lot of times they are busy, mostly so on weekends, therefore you might have to wait for a table as they take no reservations. As far as the menu goes, everybody should be able to find something that suits his or her particular preferences. The beauty of tapas is that the portions are relatively small, so you can sample 2 (even 3 or 4 if you are very hungry) different things in one sitting or you can order all different kinds of dishes and share them with your dinner companions. The food at the Firefly satisfies with its diversity and superb quality. My most beloved creations are: the Gazpacho, the Tuna Tartare and the Lamb Skewers. Mmmm, especially the exquisite Tuna Tartare is probably the best I have had here in Las Vegas and makes my mouth water at the very thought of it! They also have a decent wine selection and three different kinds of Sangria. To keep a good conscience in all my praises I should probably not neglect to mention that if you are a Purist and are looking for an experience authentic enough to resemble a visit to a Tapas Bar in Spain, then you might be a little disappointed, as a few of the dishes are, well, how shall I say it, somewhat modernized (read Americanized). In fact, a self-respecting Spanish person would probably turn in his grave if already deceased or hurriedly proceed to place himself in it if still alive, were he to see some of the tapas on offer. I lived in Spain for well over a year and have never seen the likes. If you treat tapas more in the sense of an appetizer or simply a small dish, however, and are not necessarily obsessed with it being absolutely true to its ethnic origin, then you will definitely enjoy this. I should probably sum up by saying that Firefly is one of my favorite restaurants here in Vegas: I dine there quite frequently and always with great pleasure. A guaranteed combination of excellent food, stimulating ambience and very nice service every time!
