Firefly, the quintessential urban neighborhood restaurant, offers contemporary American comfort food to the city's many 'regulars' who dine out several times a week. Enjoy favorites like our meatballs with tomato sauce, matzoh ball soup, chicken and mushroom pot pie and a variety of 'Urban Picnics' to share...or not. We also have many seafood and some vegetarian options. The menu is designed to utilize products from our local farms and farmers. Hand-picked to complement the cuisine, our award-winning wine list shows an affinity for small winemakers and producers and our seasonal specialty cocktail menu offers a bevy of unique libations.
Upon arrival, you will immediately notice the floor-to-ceiling "firefly tree", hung with lanterns and lit by candles. Seated in the intimate 60-seat dining room or the 32-seat lounge, watch the chefs work their magic in the kitchen, tucked behind a rustic stone wall. The backlit amber glass bar and the natural finishings of polished wood and iron throughout create a soothing environment, accentuated by a welcoming, attentive staff.
Located in downtown Washington DC's Dupont Circle neighborhood, near The Phillips Collection art galleries and the Dupont Circle Metro Station, Firefly makes an ideal dining destination for locals and visitors alike.
