Fleming's Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar Restaurant Review: The Memphis location of Fleming’s appeals to business diners, and its white tablecloth setting is perfect for sealing the deal. Restaurateurs Paul Fleming --- the original P.F. in P.F. Chang's --- and William Allen, III, founded this steakhouse chain, distinguished for its top-quality meats and a large wine program. The wine list features popular classic American wines as well as renowned national and international labels, and offers 100 wines by the glass and an 80-label reserve list. The USDA Prime hand-cut beef includes rib-eye steaks, filets and New York strips, all seared by intense high-heat cooking for the signature steakhouse outer crust. Typical sides include loaded baked potatoes and chipotle cheddar macaroni and cheese, while a salad could mean a chilled iceberg wedge or a classic Caesar. Seafood, too, is well-thought-out, be it Australian lobster tails or barbecue Scottish salmon filet. Desserts are familiar: cheesecake, chocolate lava cake and crème brûlée.
