This past weekend I attended a press brunch at Firefly in Studio City. A Valley institutions since 2002, Firefly recently added brunch to the menu, so they invited me and some fellow bloggers to check it out.. The restaurant features a magnificent ambiance, covered in vines and outdoor greenery on the cozy covered greenhouse-like patio. The overhead natural light was perfect for taking brunch pics.
We started off with a taste of the berry smoothie and an assortment of pastries. My favorite was the sticky bun, with roasted pecans and sweet cinnamon. We then moved on to avocado toast. It was some of the best avocado toast I’ve had, and there are a lot to taste here in LA. The next course was the steelhead salmon, which was beautifully presented with cabbage and a side of creme fraiche. It looked like a piece of art.
The next item on the menu were the scrambles, lobster and a farmers market fresh veggies. I’m not a big fan of lobster, which is shocking to most people, so I dove into the veggie scramble. It had the best seasoning. A scramble with actual seasoning that wasn’t just salt and pepper.
I ended breakfast with the thick cut brioche French toast. Dusted with powdered sugar and served with slices of warm cinnamon apples, I couldn’t pass it up. I washed it all down with a tasty cocktail.
