LA Weekly's Description
The Firefly is a comfortable restaurant, the kind of neighborhood place you drop into a couple of times a month because you like the idea of cornmeal-fried anchovies in your caesar salad, or of a seasonal paella that tastes more like an uptown version of jambalaya. Asian touches pop up now and again, and a few Mexican things, and quite a few folky flavors from Spain. (The tapas served to coincide with the Thursday-evening farmers market right outside the bistro's doors have become a South Pasadena tradition.) But the specialty here is probably the food of the African-American diaspora, and the best dishes on the menu run toward things like seasonal crawfish jambalaya, and the pecan-crusted catfish fillets stacked up like poker chips.
Tips from foursquare
Catfish + St. Peter's Old Port. Seriously good.
Excellent Moroccan/Mediterranean cuisine...
Come and hear great blues!
Mmm bacon donuts
Service is as slow as molasses... But food is pretty good. Live music on Wednesdays and Thursdays.
