Flames Steakhouse, Briarcliff under new ownership...

Nick Vuli has sold the long running restaurant in Briarcliff Manor and it is now called Flames Bar and Grill. Anyone been lately?

Didn’t that change awhile back? When we first moved up here it was an Italian place. Then Flames and i thought I read several months ago about the change to the bar and grill.

Yes, this report is belated. It came up when a friend of mine said he had run into Vuli and that he was looking for another spot. It was news to me at the time…

Flames Steakhouse has indeed relocated to E. Main Street in Elmsford. Proprietor Nick Vulaj had originally operated out of Briarcliff Manor. Same menu. Dropped in for a beer recently and the place already has that worn steakhouse look with a classical cello at the entranceway to one of the dining rooms. A brick oven pizza restaurant is in the works next door, too.
