Firefly* On Paradise
Firefly* is a tapas kitchen and bar with three locations in the Las Vegas Valley. The Paradise location was shut down in late April, at least temporarily, after more than 30 diners reported food poisoning symptoms.
But before that, the Firefly* restaurants had been getting high marks from local food reviewers.
"Eating here has always been so much fun, we didn’t realize it was an education: Spanish Tapas 101. It seems everyone is doing some version of this food now, but in Vegas, Firefly did it first. No wonder each new outlet has been a success," says Brock Radke, Las Vegas Weekly's restaurant reviewer. Radke has ranked Firefly* as No. 9 on his list of the 20 most important restaurants in Las Vegas.
