Stuffed Dates at Firefly

John Simmons, chef and managing partner of Firefly, says this dish has been a top-seller since the local chain’s debut. “We take a gooey Medjool date, remove the pit and replace it with a smoked almond, then wrap it in thick-cut apple wood-smoked bacon, lightly fry ’em and sauce them with a tangy red-wine sauce and top with blue-cheese crumbles. They’re addictive.” We second that. $4, 9560 W. Sahara Ave., 834-3814; 3900 Paradise Road, 369-3971.

Ladies, wanna know if he really loves you? Watch closely the look on his face as the server drops off this gorgeous plate of spicy, delicious and pungent things with flavors that were meant to last. The dish delivers: Slices of maguro tuna are layered and topped with a zingy chili-ginger sauce. Next comes the crispy shallots, raw onion and a garnish of micro-greens for color. Lastly, a little negi oil is drizzled on top. Polish it all off and, before popping so much as a Tic Tac, whisper, “Come here, baby. Give me a little kiss.” His move.
