A family friendly restaurant features quality local ingredients, vegetarian options, and a sense of fun.
Think of Firefly Fare as “farm to table on the go.” Chef and owner Chris Parkhurst offers a seasonally changing menu, a fresh juice bar, and freshly baked deserts.
“We’re trying to bring us back a little closer to how our great grandparents used to eat, but with a bit of modern sensibility and global influence,” says Parkhust. That means sourcing locally and sustainably when possible and creating a changing landscape of great tastes. “We’re providing an alternative that’s been missing downtown for someone who wants quick access to healthy, tasty food while supporting local farmers.”
Sound good? It sounds even better when you list some of the options that have made the menu so far: butternut squash pancakes with local apple butter, zucchini frittata with braised greens and fresh oranges, and Moroccan seven veggie stew.
The dishes change frequently, so the best way to find out what the Blacksburg native has cooking is to stop by. You’ll be welcomed with carefully crafted meals, fresh ingredients, and fun details, including firefly table lights and some of your favorite old record covers holding today’s menu.
