For the third year in a row, Panama City Beach’s Firefly Restaurant has received Florida Trend magazine’s prestigious Golden Spoon Award. The acclaimed restaurant, which is located in the Shoppes at Edgewater, a property managed by The Resort Collection of Panama City Beach, was given the award in recognition of its exquisite cuisine, culinary expertise, service and atmosphere. The restaurant, known for freshly caught fish, local produce, succulent beef and fowl, artisan pizzas, and excellent sushi, is the perfect place for an intimate dining experience or a large family dinner. The restaurant has received a number of awards and honors in the past and is proud to obtain another Golden Spoon Award from Florida Trend. To further expand on its award-winning culinary offerings, Firefly has started construction on a brand-new sushi bar. “Sushi continues to grow in popularity, and we see more and more of our guests heading down the healthier path,” owner Dave Trepanier said. Firefly’s sushi has always been prepared in the kitchen, but Trepanier said that “true sushi aficionados want to see the artistry of the sushi chef and interact with him.” The new sushi bar is anticipated to open in February.
