I thought FireFly was mediocre, decent tapas, but nothing exceptional.
I had some AWESOME Meals at VooDoo Steak house, a Italian Place in Paris. and a few others.

What makes a restaurant 'Important' ?

I'm glad Bachi Burger made the top 20. Excellent burgers.

Too bad Settebello didn't though.

Maybe they got tired if using "best".

Any list that does not recognize Raising Cane's is suspect.

Kinda wonder what makes Metro "important". Don't get me wrong, I like them and their tiramisu is the bomb but if they closed their doors tomorrow would Vegas go into zombie mode.

Same with Peppermill, aside from being used in "Casino", can't think of it being vital to the city.

Firefly was ok but there are tons of tapas places all around. I'll go to Bar/Bistro in the arts district before Firefly but will agree with Bouchon and Bachi Burger.

Firefly, Marche Bacchus, and Bachi Burger are alright. Peppermill have roaches on the floor the last time my friend and I dined there a few years ago.

I will tell you what makes a restaraunt Important... The fact that I like it!!!!!! And whatever list They make up does not mean I would like ANY of the restaurants on the list.... A list is just another way of skewing the data the way a person wants it to be used....

I could make a list of the 20 most important restaurants to me and you might not even know some of them.... And maybe my criteria for this list is that every one of them serves butter in a blue square dish.. Means nothing to anyone else but is important to me....
