Fleming's Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar - River Oaks
2405 W. Alabama Street
Houston, TX 77098
With a decor of dark wood, leather upholstery and soft lighting, this clubby steakhouse has a warm, upscale feel. The menu's focus is prime beef (aged up to four weeks), from bone-in rib eye and filet mignon to New York strip drizzled with bearnaise sauce. Classic seafood offerings include lobster tails, steamed crab legs and wild Alaskan salmon; sides, served a la carte, include baked potato and chipotle mac and cheese.
The wine list has 100 selections, all available by the glass. Wine flights--three two-ounce glasses of different wines--allow for experimentation. A reserve wine list has more than 80 selections available by the bottle.
Discovery Dinners are custom-made for wine lovers. Three four-course menu options ($75, $100, $150) come with chef-approved wine pairings. Must be groups of six or more and reserved in advance.
