Settings and Menus that Shine


DC’s fine dining circuit just got brighter

Whether it’s an intimate party for 12 or a lively group of 100-plus, Firefly accommodates a wide range of events. Our talented culinary team provides a delicious spread of classic comfort food seasoned with unique and twists. Upon arrival, guests immediately notice the floor-to-ceiling "firefly tree," hung with lanterns and lit with candles. Seated in the intimate 60-seat dining room or the lounge (with room for 34 seated or 40 standing), guests can watch chefs hard at work on their craft, in a kitchen tucked behind a rustic stone wall. Our menus feature contemporary American comfort food inspired by the DC area’s seasonal, sustainable, and local foods. Firefly's neighborhood charm coupled with our experienced, kind staff makes every event a delicious and memorable affair.
