Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar

Flemings Prime Steakhouse
Craig LaBan headed out to Radnor with a healthy case of skepiticism to try out Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse, a high end chain from the folks that brought us Outback. But LaBan found that this steakhouse chain is worth keeping.

I prefer the quality of Fleming’s steaks to that of those two competitors (as well as Ruth’s Chris and Smith & Wollensky). I’m generally not a wet-aged fan (I prefer the complexity of a long dry age), but Fleming’s prime meat, butchered in-house and simply seasoned, was incredibly tender and perfectly cooked.

Each slice had the long, lingering savor of quality beef that rang true to the particular cut – the ribeye bursting with a swashbuckling, fat-basted gusto; the bone-in strip steak more refined and focused, but still flexing a peppery, beefy punch; the filet mignon a thick pillow of luxurious carnivore comfort.

Two Bells – Very Good
