The first Fleming’s Steakhouse appeared in 1998 in Newport Beach, California. It was opened by Paul Fleming and Bill Allen and named after the former. Since that time, the contemporary take on an American classic has opened all over the United States including right here in Scottsdale. There are two locations in Scottsdale, making it easy to get your steak fix no matter where you are. Old Town or up north, it’s always a good time to go to Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse and Wine Bar.
One taste of Executive Chef Russell Skall’s food, and you’ll know why Fleming’s is so popular. Only the finest, juiciest USDA aged prime beef is served here. Of course, what is a steakhouse without a little seafood? There’s plenty to choose from on the appetizers from a chilled seafood tower for two, to Baked Brie, Pan Crisped Pork Belly, and more. If you’re not too hungry, the small plates are the way to go with choices like Lobster Tempura, to Sliced Filet Mignon, you can’t go wrong. Even the salads here are special. Try Fleming’s Salad with candied walnuts and dried cranberries, or a Modern Caesar that includes fried capers and crisp prosciutto chips. Generous portions for your sides arrive so you’ll have plenty to enjoy whether you like Sauteed French Green Beans or Fleming’s potatoes made with jalapenos, cream, and cheddar cheese. Whether you want chicken, ribs, or seafood, you’ll find selections to keep you satisfied here.
Of course, the main attraction here is the steak. Whether a Porcini Rubbed Filet Mignon, Prime Ribeye, or Peppercorn New York Strip catch your eye, you really can’t go wrong. Feel free to get the biggest steak you’d like. If you can’t finish it all, Fleming’s will wrap it up for you to enjoy the next day.
