FireFly* Tapas Kitchen & Bar – Las Vegas NV
3824 Paradise Road, Las Vegas NV
One of my favorite restaurants in Vegas. It is just off the strip. I never would have known about it if I had not been introduced to it by a local while I was working on a project in Vegas. It is not in one of the big casinos, and was not started by one of the famous celebrity chefs ( although the chef should be, as his food certainly is famous!). It is more than worth the really short cab ride.
It has an extensive menu of Spanish Tapas of all sorts, priced very reasonably. Also a nice wine and drink list. I recommend the cheaper of the two Spanish Tempranillo’s by the glass – it is delicious!
Everything I have had there has been interesting and delicious. This trip I started with the Apple and Manchego Salad with smoked almonds. The Spicy Beef Salad with filet mignon, orange-soy dressing, romaine, pickled cuke & watermelon radish, and salsa verde was my main course – and it was spicy and good. And of course I had to order the stuffed dates which are legendary. They are wrapped in bacon with smoked almonds, bleu cheese and a red wine reduction. When I told a friend I was heading to Vegas – the first thing they said was “you have to get the dates at FireFly*”….which I did.
Located on Paradise Road south of Sands Ave.
