There is a saying in euchre: go high or go home. New steakhouse Flamme on Sanlitun Village 3F is doing the former with some hard-to-resist specials. Numerous people have already told me they consider the steaks here good value, so they should be even happier with the two-for-one deal on Tuesdays as well as decent drink specials during the rest of the week. Here is how it shapes up.
All-you-can-drink Stella and Hoegaarden for RMB50. Given a pint of Stella tends to be RMB35 to RMB40 around Beijing, the average punter should be able to squeeze some value out of this one (and it ought to go well with the super salty zucchini chips).
Two-for-one house steaks. Again, these Aussie slabs are already good value–and very rich if the one I had is any indication–so this stands to be a popular special.
First cocktail is free for ladies.*
Buy one, get one free drinks from 2 PM to closing (not including bottled wine and beer). This should be of interest to cocktail fans given that Paul Mathew put together the menu and it includes cocktails with local twists.
With these specials, Flamme is is both seeking to pump up its patron numbers and putting the heat on its third-floor neighbors.
