Flaming cheese sets off sprinklers at Baltimore’s Cava Mezze restaurant; video goes viral

Diners at Cava Mezze learned there is such a thing as too much cheese when four flaming cheese dishes set off the sprinkler system at the Harbor East restaurant last week.

About a dozen international colleagues from Oath, a digital media company owned by Verizon, were having dinner at Cava Mezze Tuesday night, when they were enjoying the restaurant’s saganaki (flaming cheese). They were among the last tables in the restaurant when they placed an order for four of the cheese dishes.


“We originally ordered four. It was an incredible show, and they tasted amazing,” Matt Gillis, senior vice president of publisher platforms for Oath, said in an email. “So, we doubled down and ordered another four!”

A video by James Hughes, another guest in the group and director of publisher sales for Oath, shows servers igniting the four skillets at once. Seconds later, a sprinkler directly overhead unleashes a torrent of water, dousing the flames and the servers.
