The Weekly Bad Picture of Good Food: Camarones a la Diabla from Firefly

I’m too lazy to check, but I’m pretty sure the Firefly is by far the most represented restaurant in our little Weekly Bad Picture of Good Food series.  This particular gem, however, is the first one taken at the newer-ish location downtown at The Plaza.  I don’t know if it was the view of the canopy-covered freak show that is the Fremont St. Experience, the four pitchers of Red Sangria or if it was just a superior product, but the food across the board was even better here than at the original location on Paradise Rd. That’s saying a lot, because until this visit, I didn’t think there was a better bang for your buck in this town than the Firefly on Paradise Rd.  With a similar seductive low-lighting, the iPhone sucked just as much at this location as it does at the other, thus having the extraordinary Camarones a la Diabla from Firefly be this week’s Weekly Bad Picture of Good Food.

  • Nice to meet you the other night, sir. Thanks for the good words and the horrific pic. Inclusion in this episode of the fine serial that is WBPGF is truly an honor.

    Holler next time you’re up in that funky gypsy spaceship that is Firefly*Downtown and I’ll whip up a few items that haven’t made it onto the menu yet. I’m always looking for informed feedback on new menu ideas (aka guinea pigs).

    I just signed the lease this week for Firefly*Westside, out on West Sahara. I’ve got lots of new dishes brewing for the new spot.

  • Ha! I’m sure chefs just love seeing their food displayed to the public in the crystal clear quality snapshot that is an iPhone in low light!

    Great to meet you the other night too, John. Anytime you need a guinea pig, I’m yours!

    Congratulations on the new location! Do you have an approximate opening date yet? What are the cross streets / address? I’m just throwing this out there, but if you’re still in the expansive mood, Firefly* The District at GVR. I’m just sayin’

    Thanks for the great eats, John. Looking forward to talking with you again soon!

  • Firefly*Westside will open as quickly as possible, likely mid-july. Address is 9560 W. Sahara. I’d love to get a little satellite fly* out in Green Valley. It all depends on how we do Westside. If demand dictates, it is my duty to give the people what the want and where they want it, and GVR is a sweet address…
