Flamestone American Grill: Oldsmar, FL

June 14, 2017

Brunching on the weekend is a must, so when Jenn from This Jenn Girl reached out to invite me to Flamestone American Grill for brunch with a few other girls I was in. I hadn’t heard of the restaurant before so I was excited to try somewhere new that I could hopefully bring Greg back to for brunch soon. And now that I’ve seen what they have to offer, we will most definitely be back sooner rather than later.

After a long week at work, who doesn’t want to kick start their Saturday enjoying brunch with friends!? We started out our brunch with lots of chatter and a glass of prosecco. With seven courses ahead of us, three appetizers, two entrees and two desserts, we couldn’t wait to try it all.

Our first course was polenta with a lobster citrus reduction topped with shrimp. The dish had so much flavor and was a great way to start off our meal. The lobster citrus reduction really added an amazing flavor to the dish.

We couldn’t wait to get our hands on the guacamole, if you couldn’t tell 😉  there were three variations, mild, medium and spicy. All three were equally as delicious. Each were made table side in a molcajete and now I kind of feel like I need one of these to make my guacamole in at home. How fun would that be!?

The final appetizer was an Ahi Tuna Salad with blackened yellowfin tuna, asian slaw, pecans, asparagus tips and crispy wontons with a ponzu-peanut vinaigrette on top. As an ahi tuna lover, I really enjoyed this dish and especially loved the flavor of the dressing over top.

Moving on to the entrees, first up we had a Pan Seared Chilean Sea Bass atop a parmesan risotto, roasted tomato fondue and basil infused oil. My mouth is watering just thinking about it all, it was so delicious and one of my favorite dishes that we had. The fish was cooked perfectly and the flavor was light and not too fishy which I like.

The Smoked Flamestone 21, made with Buffalo Trace, Carpano Antica and Luxardo, barrel aged for 21 days in house. Wow. I’m not usually one to drink something straight and I usually don’t drink whiskey, but this I had to try. Even though it was a little strong for me, I did enjoy the flavor and found the drink to be very smooth. Plus it was garnished with candied bacon and how could you pass that up!?

You’ll never see me turn down a filet, especially one that is as perfectly cooked as ours was. Our second entree was a Fire Grilled Filet Mignon Oscar. The dish included jumbo lump crab, asparagus and a filet atop meyer lemon hollandaise. Another dish where all the flavors blended so perfectly together. Definitely something I know Greg would order next time we go.

The s’mores milkshake *insert 100 heart-eye emojis*, was the first of our two desserts. I didn’t even want to drink it because of how much time it looked like it took to make. I’ve never met a sweet I didn’t like and this one has me wanting to go back for more. I’m usually not a marshmallow eater unless they are in hot chocolate or roasted for s’mores, but these were dipped in various toppings and were so good.

Fried Oreos aren’t just for the fair anymore. And I’m 100% ok with that. Our final course was fried Oreos served with salted caramel ice cream. They paired perfectly together and it was the perfect amount of sweetness. By the end of our two desserts, my sweet tooth was extremely satisfied.

Flamestone American Grill is open for lunch and dinner Monday-Saturday and is open for brunch and dinner and Sunday’s. I’m excited to head back soon to try some of the other items on the menu. I was truly impressed with the presentation and flavor of each dish we tried. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to day dream about that s’mores milkshake.
