Fleming's Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar - Baton Rouge
So many aspects of Fleming's Prime Steakhouse set it apart from its competitors. One of its standouts--and a big draw for most diners--is its ample wine program, which includes an award-winning list of 100 wines by the glass. It's also incredibly approachable and diverse, and hand-selected by the restaurant's wine director.
For example, each one is broken down into a category, with vivid descriptions like "bubbly and festive," "earthy, complex, robust and spicy" or "velvety and full bodied." They're meant to match Fleming's steaks, which consist of hand-selected USDA Prime, Certified Angus and Wagyu beef expertly aged a minimum of 21 days. Cuts range from a 12-ounce main filet mignon to a 20-ounce prime bone-in ribeye.
Steak companions are indulgent and decadent, and include the likes of truffle-poached lobster and jumbo lump crab meat prepared "Oscar style" with béarnaise sauce. There is also a prime rib dinner offered every Sunday. It comes with a trio of sauces, wedge salad, side dish and dessert. Those considering non-meat entrees can look forward to such selections as barbecue Scottish salmon filet, all-natural roast chicken and sauteed Chilean sea bass.
The Baton Rouge outpost is in the premier shopping area of Towne Center; it's also close to several hotels and corporate offices.
