Steaks for Days
Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar, 401 E Las Olas Blvd., 954.233.3327, flemingssteakhouse.com
A high-end steak spot has made Las Olas its home. Fleming’s has everything from signature starters to a range of classic and specialty steaks to premium seafood. It’s located on the ground floor of the Bank of America building, but the design vibe is definitely not “bank lobby.” Ocean-inspired elements like hues of blues, orange and taupe, and chandeliers strung with silver stingrays, give it a Lauderdale feel. Menu items include Roasted Portobello and Cauliflower Steak (crispy potato marrow with chimichurri and farro, asparagus and pickled onions with mushroom demi-glace).
