Firefly Restaurant

This Noe Valley comfort food spot is stuck in the ‘90s, but the dated look is part of the charm. Eating here feels like you’re at the home of a bohemian who really digs earth tones. The food, which we can only describe as a bit American and a bit all over the place, matches the eccentric vibe, but the flavors are really good. There’s a kampachi crudo tostada that’s heavy on the avocado, a well-executed fried chicken with mashed potatoes and biscuits, and a creamy coconut seafood stew. Since Firefly is pretty mellow you can easily secure a reservation (they don’t take parties larger than six), so it’s a great intimate catch-up spot.
