The Food Baby bottom line:
- GO TO Fleming’s for happy hour.
- That’s all.
A few nights ago, a fab friend Kristen and I went to Fleming’s for their “5 for $6 ‘til 7” - which includes five appetizers and five glasses of wine for $6 each…..until 7:00 PM. Clever!
Now, as I’m sure you have heard, Fleming’s is an extraordinary prime steakhouse, and I WILL be back soon enough to give you a review of a sure-to-be incredible filet mignon. I’ve had dinner there once, a long time ago for Restaurant Week, and it was fantastic. That said – this review is not of the beautiful steaks, but rather the beautiful bar food!
So here’s the deal:
Discover 5 for $6 ’til 7 — 5 tempting appetizers, $6 each, served nightly until 7 pm at the bar:
- Tenderloin Carpaccio
- Sweet Chile Calamari
- Wicked Cajun Barbecue Shrimp
- Seared Ahi Tuna
- Jumbo Shrimp Cocktail
- Fleming's Prime Burger
Kristen and I decided on the Tenderloin Carpaccio, Calamari, Ahi Tuna, and the Burger. She had a dirty martini (dirty girl) and I had a gorgeous glass of earthy yet fruity Catena Malbec…well worth the splurge (14 bones is a splurge for me).
As we discussed how to solve the problems of the world, our carpaccio arrived. A huge, festive looking plate brimming with cheesy crostini, perfectly arranged carpaccio slices drizzled with a caper creole mustard sauce, and a little nest of basil and shredded cheese which gave the whole thing a caprese vibe. Everything came together so harmoniously! Who knew bar food could be so posh?
