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. Sides run to potatoes with cream, cheddar and jalapeños, while a salad could mean the house version with candied walnuts, dried cranberries, tomatoes and herbed crostini. 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.
