Over in The Shops at Legacy, Fleming’s is a steakhouse revered by Planoites. Serving the shopping district for the past five years, Fleming’s makes for a romantic date night spot, or a spot where you and a group of your besties can get away from stress of the day-to-day hustle and bustle. If you’ve got a little extra coin, you should certainly check out Fleming’s new Filets of Fall menu, paired with their Uncorked wine selections.
Filets of Fall is a new three-course promotion Fleming’s is offering from now until November 2. Diners can choose from three topped filets, as well as a new plant-based option. For an additional $28, guests can enjoy pours of four of the restaurant’s select wines.
Upon arrival, you will be seated immediately in a softly-lit dining room. The restaurant is located in a glass building, so we recommend getting a seat close to the perimeter of the dining room, allowing for a vibrant view of the shopping center.
The first course starts off with Fleming’s signature harvest salad, made with arugula, hearts of romaine, toasted pistachios, herbed goat cheese, crispy prosciutto, pickled onions, croutons, dates and fig vinaigrette. The salad is paired with a Böen pinot noir, a bold blend with notes of plum, cocoa, cola and cherry.
While waiting for the steaks, the team will bring out the second wine; Balade by Belle Gloss, a pinot noir with hints of blackberry, huckleberry, vanilla and nutmeg.
For the steaks, guests can choose from three petit filet mignons; one with sauce Robert ($60), one topped with Korean style bulgogi beef ($65) and one topped with crab-stuffed shrimp ($65). Non meat-eating diners can enjoy the Korean style bulgogi marinated mushrooms, which are marinated in house-made Korean chili sauce topped with pickled vegetables and served atop a parmesan risotto with roasted cauliflower ($45).
We recommend the petit filet mignon with the bulgogi beef, which goes great with a side of Fleming’s cauliflower mash ($13). Equally as good is the petit filet mignon with crab-stuffed shrimp, with a side of the creamy parmesan risotto ($13).
Each of these filets pairs well with the Belle Gloss Taylor Lane pinot noir, with notes of cherry, blackberry, pepper and tobacco.
Assuming you have room for dessert, you’ll want to stick around for the sticky date pudding, encased in a cake served with honeycomb brittle and chantilly cream, closed out with the fourth wine of the night, a cabernet sauvignon by Quilt, with notes of vanilla, cocoa and hazelnut.
Fleming’s new Filets of Fall and Uncorked series is one to try before it ends in November. Although it will cost you a pretty dollar, you certainly get your money’s worth with all of the savory wine pairings and the hearty dishes.
