    I tried them when they had a place at the Plaza. Mediocre food and mediocre drinks, moderately expensive prices. Why, in a town like Las Vegas, would you go out of your way to give this place a try, mind you a second chance?

    the other great quote is how you go to a place after it has failed because then they will be on their best game

    ignoring that in another article online it states out of their inspections from 2004-2012 3 were a C, 3 were a B, 10 were an A and one shut the place down for a day

    so that is 17 inspections there + the one that shut then down for good = 18

    so out of 18 inspections 5 were a C or worse and two shut them down for a day or longer.....that is hardly showing that they learn from bad inspections and if you went there you would have about a 28% chance of being there for one of those C or worse type days

    and in the other article the owner blames the issues on "growth"

    http://www.vegasinc.com/news/2013/apr/30/firefly-closed-over-salmonella-poisonings-has-had-/

    um if you can't keep from making people sick don't "grow" and really that excuse barely makes sense....pretty sad a "food writer" would go out of their way to talk this place up when they have a pattern of not getting it done properly and excuse making when caught
