Fleming's Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar Restaurant Review: Founded by restaurateur Paul Fleming --- the original P.F. in P.F. Chang’s --- and William Allen, III, this steakhouse chain distinguishes itself with its top-quality meats and a notable wine program. Expect a wine list featuring numerous hard-to-find American boutique wines as well as renowned national and international labels, with 100 wines by the glass and an 80-label reserve list. The USDA Prime hand-cut beef includes rib-eyes, filets and New York strips, all seared by intensely high-heat cooking for the signature steakhouse outer crust. Decadent sides run to potatoes with cream, cheddar and jalapeños, while a salad could mean a chilled wedge of iceberg lettuce with grape tomatoes and a red onion and blue cheese dressing. Seafood, too, is well thought out, be it North Atlantic lobster tails or barbecued Scottish salmon. Finish with a familiar dessert: cheesecake, chocolate lava cake or crème brûlée.
