Lovely Las Vegas: Firefly Summerlin

 This meal was at the new Firefly in Summerlin (West part of Las Vegas) during the restaurant's soft opening.

Firefly is a popular place for tapas in Las Vegas... I've been to the original, on Paradise, only two times, but both times the experience was wonderful. The place was packed, there was a bit of a wait (generally two good signs of scrumptious food to come) and the dishes were muy, muy, muy delicioso.

I can't even remember the names of all the dishes my dining party shared... but each was well received.

I, unfortunately, was a little tentative about some of the things... it is better to avoid feta in pregnancy, no?
So I stirred clear (sadly) of a few of the little plates.

However, camarones a la diabla... well, I basically had one whole dish to myself. Hello omega-3 fatty acids.  

Another beautifully presented and delicious tapa per my companions, but I didn't indulge since it had goat cheese (another favorite of mine). Oi-vey... no sangria, no soft cheese, no soup (or sopa) for me...  

But of course, there was dessert... and there is always room for a little sweet treat, no? 
The uber-nerd in me loved the fact that my group ordered tres tres leches ; ).  
This was a heavenly treat! And a very important pregnancy indulgence, I think...

She was not a part of our dining party, but was quietly watched over us during the meal.
I think she was wishing for a taste or two.
Maybe the next time we are at Firefly's, we will share?
