Now Serving – The Flames Grille

By Alex Kantarelis

In the mood for lavish and exquisitely prepared entrées? Luxury champagne and bottle service? Decadent desserts? Elegant surroundings punctuated by a soothing waterfall? Attentive staff ready to spoil you? Then you need look no further than The Flames Grille.

Yes, although Flames is located right here in Worcester (inside the Platinum Premier Complex), walking through its doors will instantly make you feel as though you’re beginning a night out in Hollywood, NYC, or even Vegas. There is air of sophistication and class that permeates everything from the décor to the menu to the clientele.

Promising on its website “…the perfect culinary experience,” this upscale dining establishment delivers just that, with a menu that offers everything from tantalizing appetizers (mmm, try the Oysters on the Half Shell) to decadent entrees like rack of lamb and filet mignon to Crème Broule Cheesecake for dessert. As this sampling of the menu suggests, Flames is the perfect place to bring a date, business associate, or out-of-town guest whom you want to impress; couple your meal with a bottle of Dom Perignon, Moet, or Gosset, or a bottle of Hennessey, and it simply gets no better.

Flames is not your average, get-a-quick-bite-to-eat, bring-the-kids-for-their-birthdays restaurant. Its ambiance, extensive list of amenities, top notch culinary offerings, and highly attentive staff elevate it to an elegant (note: although there is no official dress code, proper ~ if not dressy ~ attire is strongly encouraged), 18+ experience and set it apart from the pack. As the face of the menu proclaims, this is “…where luxury and tradition meet.”

Hours: Thursday, Friday, Saturday, noon until 1am; Sunday through Wednesday, 6pm until 2am. The dining area seats 90, so reservations are recommended for busy weekend nights.

The full Flames menu is available on-line at
