Flame, the dining concept at two of Greece’s prime destinations
Flame, a dining concept allowing guests to taste local produce and combine their meal with a visit to nearby farms, is being introduced this season at the Blue Palace, a Luxury Collection Resort & Spa in Elounda, Crete. This follows the concept’s success at Navarino Dunes in Costa Navarino, Messinia. Guests of these two prime destinations in Greece will be able to enjoy this culinary experience being offered through the Flame concept, during their holidays.
The Flame restaurants specialise in expertly cooked steak dishes prepared from finest quality locally sourced meat with a distinct flavour and fragrance. In line with the overall gastronomic approach at both destinations, the classic and signature cuts of meat are complemented by the freshest ingredients from small-scale local producers.
Freshness is key to the Flame experience and many of the specialty herbs and vegetables are handpicked shortly before preparation, direct from the restaurants’ gardens. Before or after the meal, guests can visit the gardens and learn about the local varieties of herbs used in the kitchens. Visits can also be arranged to Flame’s local suppliers including cattle farms, olive groves, vineyards and dairies. The owners will present their products and explain the production process, showing diners firsthand where their meals have been sourced from and creating a wholesome gastronomic experience.
The Flame restaurants are located at the prime destinations of Costa Navarino and Elounda in unique dining venues among Greece’s picturesque landscape. Guests at Navarino Dunes in Costa Navarino can take in the beautiful surroundings dotted with centuries-old olive trees and views to the Ionian Sea, while enjoying a stay at The Romanos, a Luxury Collection Resort or The Westin Resort, Costa Navarino. The Flame concept enhances the culinary offerings at Costa Navarino, adding to the visitors’ experience.
Blue Palace Resort and Spa is nestled in the famous Elounda coast on the island of Crete. The opening of Flame at Blue Palace Resort and Spa is the perfect addition to the already impressive selection of 5 restaurants one can select from. Flame exemplifies all that is best in Crete, the unrivalled culinary destination, legendary for the exquisite quality of olive oil, fresh produce and hearty cuisine.
