Flames 231 is located in Shockoe Bottom north of Broad Street in the revitalized Richmond Cold Storage buuilding. They serve a variety of Mediterranean-influenced items, including wood-fired pizzas. For this outing I had the Jabri Hummus accompanied by wood-fired flatbread. Lots of flavor and something I would definitely order again. I also had the Pugliese Pizza with red sauce, mozzarella, oregano, and onions. A stellar pizza. Flames 231 also serves paninis, pastas, and salads. I briefly saw the wine list and there were bottles I would order. The place has a full bar as well.
I want to thank Danny Taormina (executive chef) and The Firestarter Group for hosting us!
Below are a few photos of the event.

I had a great time meeting folks and eating delicious food. And I will return in the near-future with hubby.
Note: The Firestarter Group provided the hummus for the table, but all other items were purchased by individual Virginia bloggers.
