Metro: Best Place to Have Sunday-Funday

The world looks golden from the bottom of a bottomless mimosa. Sunday-Funday Brunch resembles some kind of labor of Sisyphus. Foolish mortals, the champagne and OJ flows like slurred speech on Sunday mornings. The cup may overfloweth, but it'll never be empty. If the flames of hell resemble Flames on Sunday, I'm stealing the collection plate and inviting my friends.


Metro: Best American Restaurant

Because we are a nation of immigrants, defining American food can be a challenge. Flames makes as good a stab at a definition as any: hearty, satisfying plates of burgers, sandwiches, french fries, sprawling breakfasts with Bloody Marys on the side and lots and lots of cakes all served in the comfort of a plush booth.
