Share Flora share on LinkedIn share on Twitter share on Facebook

Located in the heart of East Arlington, Massachusetts, Flora Restaurant has been a favored local dining destination since 1996. Housed in the renovated Arlington Five Cent Savings Bank, the restaurant makes use of the 1920's brick and granite exterior as well as the dramatic barrel vaulted ceiling, two story windows and original mahogany vestibule.

Against this elegant backdrop, chef-owner Bob Sargent serves a menu of simple, heartfelt, American classics reinterpreted with French and Italian influences. He builds his dishes - and the menu - around local foods (especially seafood and farm-fresh produce) whenever he can.

Flora features Private Dining Rooms available for all size parties, a cool bar open during dining hours and a Sunday Buffet Brunch that can't be beat. Flora is also just a block away from the Capitol Theater, making it the perfect spot for a pre-theater dinner or after-movie dessert.
