New to the Plano restaurant scene is the arrival of California-based Flemings Prime Steakhouse and Wine Bar in the Shops at Legacy. I, along with many other foodie influencers and our plus ones, were invited to the soft opening for a private media event. It was a perfect date night experience.
I was certainly looking forward to Friday night after what felt like a long week. Before heading out to Flemings, Dior in Highland Park Village invited me over for a solo pampering session to glam me up before the night. I had no idea what it all entailed, but it was so luxe and amazing. The 45 min facial followed by an all out makeover was just what the doctor ordered. I couldn’t have felt prettier for the occasion.
The boyfriend and I arrived in time to order a cocktail their beautiful oval bar. After a few toasts, we were led into a private dining area where we could partake in a wine tasting.
Only moments in and this was decidedly one of the most amazing media events I’ve ever been a part of. The wine tasting itself welcomed all guests to sample any of the 100 wines on their menu. How insane is that?! I had to tell myself not to get too carried away with the crab cake bites. Haha.
Flemings Steakhouse abides by their philosophy of great food, wine, and excellent hospitality.
The food and drinks were none stop. At one point, each person at their table had at least 2 glasses of wine, a cocktail, and a flight of champagne. Fleming’s certainly knows the meaning of wining and dining.
For our appetizer, we had a choice of the house wedge salad which came with a huge slab of bacon or the salt roasted beet salad.
It’s safe to say, everyone wanted more bacon on their salad. It was definitely a delicious slice.
The beet salad was refreshing and bright. Loved the goat cheese and how it mellowed out the sweet and citrus of the beets and mandarin.
Next, we ordered our entrees. Our table were all steak lovers, and we either had the prime dry aged ribeye, which was absolutely delicious or the bone-in filet mignon.
I’ve rarely seen an option for a bone-in filet mignon. We were told to order it medium rare plus, since it’ll be rare toward the bone. However, my steak was more medium minus a few perfect bites at the center. Next time, I’ll just order it medium rare.
The prime dry ages ribeye was a good size and had a delicious crust. I’m a fan of fatty pieces of steak and loved the flavors. The sides that stood out to me the most were the mac n cheese and the scalloped cheese potatoes.
Brace yourself for dessert. We tasted the red, black and blue cobbler, creme brulee, cheesecake, and butterscotch pie. My favorite was the cheesecake and everyone loved the creme brulee. I think the top caramel could’ve been slightly thicker. I didn’t get that satisfying crackle when you break the top.
This was hands down the most incredible media experience I’ve ever had and Fleming’s truly lived up to the expectation of providing excellent service and hospitality. It was also a pleasure being able to meet the chefs and partners behind the concept.
This is the first Fleming’s steakhouse in Dallas and they officially open June 27th. In Texas, you can find other locations in Houston, Austin and San Antonio. Next time, we hope to try the seafood options as they looked amazing too. Danny and I had a blast with my friends and fellow foodies. Definitely a great date night for us. Reminds me how much we enjoy good food, wine and company and how the three are the perfect recipe for an incredible night.
