Firefly restaurant in Washington D.C. is momentarily closed. But tell your appetite not to worry – it’ll open back up on Saturday, September 29, with an exciting, new look.
That’s right – after 10 years of business, the local favorite is getting a pretty serious facelift. Its new interior design, imagined by D.C.’s GrizForm Design Architects, will maintain the rustic, intimate feel you’ve always loved, while adding some eye-catching additions and extra seats to the mix.
We thought we’d give you a peek at what things will look like. You can see the iconic tree is still the centerpiece of the restaurant, only now it’s been enlivened with a swing that hangs from its branches. The kitchen is being transformed to look like the outside of a cottage; you’ll be able to peek through the pretty salvaged windows to see Executive Chef Danny Bortnick and his team at work. Other additions in the warm-ambiance department include reclaimed woods throughout and a custom ceiling that emulates the enigmatic light of a firefly.
The whole painterly picture brings to mind a house at the edge of the woods and a country field at dusk. Once you get the menu of contemporary American comfort food in hand, we know you won’t have trouble foraging for a delicious, memorable meal.
Firefly is located at 1310 New Hampshire Avenue Northwest in Washington D.C. (202-861-1310 or firefly-dc.com).
