Firefly Review

The backlighted, amber bar and birch-log wall create a warm and natural look at this showcase for no-frills contemporary American bistro food. Start with deviled eggs or blue cheese-stuffed, bacon-wrapped dates from the clever "urban picnic" menu of small plates. More-standard comfort food includes pork tenderloin with rutabaga puree, and roast chicken with collard greens and Italian sausage. The small wine list, made up mostly of California boutique labels, is well chosen and priced fairly, and gluten-free menus are well-curated.
