TV and radio sports personality Mike Valenti is recovering from burns after a steak prepared tableside at a popular restaurant flared up and scorched his face.
Valenti — who appears on WJBK-TV (Channel 2) and at WXYT-FM (97.1) — was dining with friends in Birmingham at Bistro Joe’s Friday night when the incident occurred.
The restaurant’s popular Flaming Tomahawk steak — which is served on a sizzling plate — was being prepared at Valenti’s table when the server applied Bacardi 151 rum to the entree and it flared up.

I've had a couple of close calls at home, usually involving Bananas Foster and a questionable BAL, but never at a restaurant.
