This gorgeous setting, overlooking the Trent River, is located at 203 South Front Street, New Bern, with ample free parking.  Hors d’oeuvres will start off this dining feast. You will have an opportunity to enjoy Chef’s Edible Art Display, mini sweet potato biscuits, spanakopita, and petite three cheese quiche. The Flame will present a gourmet dinner, prepared by Chef Smoke and Chef Fong. You will start with dinner rolls and a delicious house salad. The dinner will be a combination of boneless short ribs with plum glaze and roasted chicken, roasted to perfection topped with veloute sauce. This will be accompaniment with piped garlic mashed potatoes and long stem honey glazed carrots. To finish off your meal you will be served chocolate mousse in martini glasses with lady fingers. That certainly sounds like a feast for everyone!   A full cash bar will be available all evening. You may purchase a wrist band for $25 which entitles you to unlimited alcoholic drinks. In addition you may buy beer, wine and mixed drinks as an individual drink.
