No one’s been harder on the tapas at Firefly (both locations) than we at ELV.
But we snuck in last week (unannounced and unrecognized), ordered four small plates, had a few glasses of tempranillo (the first glass was corked, but our server was more than accommodating when we pointed it out to him), and by crackey the vittles were darn tasty!
There ain’t nuthin’ subtle or refined about what they cook here (and most of the dishes could gain by subtraction of at least one ingredient), but we’ve decided if you “manage your expectations” (James Reza’s words), you can have some good stuff in a very cool atmosphere overlooking the low-rent, tourist travesty that is Fremont Street.
And somehow, from this glass-enclosed rotunda, with all of those bright lights shining in, things didn’t look so bleak.
Either on the plate or on the street.
Our meal of four small plates and four glasses of wine came to $83 + $17 tip = $100.
