Flock to Flemings for Fine Food Fare

Downtown Chicago is loaded with great steak houses, such as Gibson's, David Burke's Primehouse, Capital Grill, Keefer's and Kinzie Chop House, but you can add another restaurant to list.

Fleming's Prime Steakhouse and Wine Bar (25 East Ohio St.) made its debut a few months ago and is becoming a destination that many folks are flocking to. Although Fleming's is nationally renowned for its prime beef and steakhouse fare, their seafood selections, such as Tuna Mignon, Seared Scallops and Barbecue Scottish Salmon Filet are also very popular.

The ambiance in the dining room is elegant, but not pretentious. Their premise is to be sophisticated and comfortable without being overpriced.

Fleming's is critically acclaimed for its simple fare. They serve tantalizing side dishes family-style, and have five different potato preparations. Their appetizers and salads complement the menu and the calamari is a must-try. Scrumptious desserts such as Chocolate Lava Cake, Baked Peach Cobbler, and Creme Brulee are made from scratch daily.

The Fleming's 100 is the restaurants award-winning wine program that features 100 wines-by-the-glass. The wine list features boutique wines and other well-known labels from around the world. Special 2-ounce wine tasting pours allows diners to select the perfect wine with their meal. The Reserve List offers more that 80 limited-availability wines by the bottle from internationally renowned wineries.

Fleming's is located at 25 East Ohio St. just two blocks from the Magnificent Mile. They are open seven days a week and are currently offering a special prix fixe menu. Their four private rooms are reserved for meetings or private dining.
