Baked Alaska in all its flaming glory.
| The Oceanaire

Tableside preparation of things like Caesar salad and steak tartare used to be commonplace back in the day, but nowadays diners not many things are prepared at the table other than guacamole. Thankfully, a handful of restaurants (both old and new) are keeping the tradition of dramatic tableside presentations alive by continuing to serve flambéed desserts. Here's where to find them.

4023 Oak Lawn Ave Ste 110
Dallas, TX 75219

The Bananas Foster at this pricey steak and seafood destination is a bit different from the classic: A scoop of butter-pecan ice cream and moist, buttery cake are topped with a mixture of bananas and a buttery brown sugar sauce with rum that's lit on fire before being poured over the dessert, resulting in deliciously caramelized bananas.

2. La Duni

4620 McKinney Ave
Dallas, TX 75205
(214) 520-7300
Visit Website
La Duni is known for its awesome baked goods and desserts, but only one of them gets set on fire. Order up a slice of the famous Cuatros Leches cake Baked Alaska-style and the toasted meringue-topped cake will come a la mode with vanilla bean ice cream; a server will then pour a mixture of Kahlua and vodka over it and light it on fire. It's almost like a White Russian in cake form.

3. The Oceanaire

The Westin Galleria
Dallas, TX 75240

The Oceanaire does Baked Alaska as it should be: dramatically. A tower of cake and ice cream (flavors change seasonally, so it could be anything from mint chocolate chip to pumpkin) is covered in artful swirls of meringue. Alcohol is poured over it tableside and it's flambeed to toasty perfection. Watch your eyebrows.

4. The Old Warsaw

2610 Maple Ave
Dallas, TX 75201
(214) 528-0032
Visit Website
A bastion of the old-school continental cuisine that's mostly gone the way of the dinosaurs, Old Warsaw specializes in souffles and tableside desserts. Order Bananas Foster, Cherries Jubilee, or Crepes Suzette and they'll wheel out a cart and flame your choice of dessert tableside with plenty of booze. Just watch your eyebrows.

5. Perry's Steakhouse & Grille

Copy Link
2000 McKinney Ave, Ste 100
Dallas, TX 75201
(214) 855-5151
Visit Website
The Nutty D'Angelo starts off with a ball of vanilla ice cream that's dipped in white chocolate and crushed pecans. A buttery brown sugar and brandy caramel sauce is made tableside, which is where the (rather large) flames come in. Bonus: All the fancy desserts are available at lunch, so go on a Friday to feast on the gigantic $11 pork chop and you can have your flambéed finale without draining your bank account.

6. Simply Fondue

2108 Greenville Ave
Dallas, TX 75206
(214) 827-8878

There's no shortage of open flames at this fondue specialist. All the dessert fondues come lit on fire — including Bananas Foster, S'more, and chocolate Grand Marnier versions — so you can toast the provided marshmallows. [Photo]

7. Table 13

4812 Belt Line
Addison, TX 75254
(972) 789-9558

Table 13 presents itself as a place the Rat Pack would hang out (you know, if they were somehow still alive in 2015): think dirty martinis, live music, and dancing. The old-school vibe is also evident in the dessert menu, which includes Baked Alaska and Bananas Foster, both of which will be set aflame at your table. [Photo]
