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 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 onion rings with smoked jalapeño aïoli while a salad could mean a chilled wedge of iceberg lettuce with grape tomatoes, red onion and blue cheese dressing. Seafood, too, is well-thought-out, be it Australian lobster tails or tuna mignon with tomato-sherry vinaigrette. Finish with a familiar dessert: cheesecake, chocolate lava cake or crème brûlée.
