    Wanted to let everyone know of an amazing place we found on out last trip. Firefly on Paridase Rd.
    Amazing Tapas and drinks. I would say it's about due east of Planet Hollywod on Pardise Rd.
    Best part is we had 5 Small plates and 4 drinks and the bill was $74 (before tip)

    Our group had eaten there before the health dept brought down the hammer on them and also tried the one that was at the Plaza at one time. I think we all enjoyed it, but once they got shut down for awhile, no one ever suggested we go back...

    If it's the place I'm thinking of, it's to the north of there, between DI and Flamingo. IIRC they did move some time ago but to a new place like a block away.

    For those interested to try it, the issues they had were resolved years ago. I think they deserve another chance. I've been there many times and never had an issue. The bacon wrapped dates are to die for. I'll be visiting them again in this month.

    Correct on all accounts above. This operation indeed incurred and deserved the public's wrath from the food-handing issues that were well-documented several years ago and they did move to a larger location about a block north and shuttered several satellite locations they owned and operated. Having been in the business, I disagree with the "death-sentence" some have imposed, but it's certainly their right. I've always enjoyed this place and had many, many good meals there. I definitely agree on the bacon-wrapped dates!
