Flame Restaurant Review

: Most shopping mall dining experiences go the typical route. High-traffic Rosedale is no different, with one exception: Flame. This locally owned spot (brought to you by the team behind Mission American Kitchen in downtown Minneapolis and Via Cafe & Bar in Edina) has created a crowd-pleasing alternative to national chains. The big box setting is no different from its chain brethren, but Flame takes pains to stand out, with lots of brick and wood and sunlight. It also plays up the Flame name, with plenty of flickering torches, sparkling desserts and fog-spewing cocktails. The kitchen specializes in---what else?---flame-roasted meats; best is the simple roast chicken and spice-rubbed, slow-roasted beef, all served in individual portions or in family-style platter combos with a long list of familiar side dishes, from mashed potatoes and baked beans to coleslaw and corn on the cob. Prices are surprisingly affordable, and the food flies out of the kitchen, which makes it easy to drop in before hitting the cineplex next door.
