When longtime restaurateur Curt Cole decided to open an upscale, contemporary American restaurant, he placed it in the city’s second most upscale neighborhood, Green Hills. Deer Park Grille was nestled in the curve of Bandywood that's also home to some very upscale retailers; a certain well-heeled crowd loved it for many good reasons, but they only loved it one night every couple of weeks. So Cole gave the place a colorful and whimsical interior makeover, whisked off the linens, 86-ed the printed menu in favor of a chalkboard that announces a rotating—and concise—menu and renamed it Firefly Grille. Martinis are still sipped by sophisticates at the intimate little bar, but these days sippie cups are also welcome in the dining room. As for entrées, reel in the salmon or whatever the fish of the day might be. The chocolate crème brûlée is a torrid affair, and it may well sum up the appeal of Firefly Grille: your meal will feel indulgent and upscale, but the restaurant is a genuinely casual affair.
