Fleming's "Small Plates, Big Pours" now through 6/30/2013


Fleming's in Newport Beach is currently running an awesome promotion for wine lovers through the end of June.  You can go and get a small plate of amazing food, paired with an extra-large (1.5 times their normal serving) pour of premium wine for $24.95.  Some of these wines run close to $25 a glass by themselves, so this is a great deal.  There are seven different small-plates to choose from.


SLICED FILET MIGNON
shiitake risotto, chili oil, porcini butter drizzle
COLOSSAL SHRIMP SKEWERS
chimichurri dipping sauce, fennel citrus salad
NEW ZEALAND PETITE LAMB CHOPS
pistachio-mint pesto, "F17" sauce, polenta fries
BRAISED SHORT RIBS OF BEEF
boneless, savory arugula and spinach, natural au jus
SEARED AHI TUNA
fresh vegetable salad, spicy mustard sauce
NEW BEDFORD SCALLOPS
meyer lemon-honey glaze, carrots, green beans, asparagus
FLEMING’S LOBSTER TEMPURA
soy-ginger dipping sauce, arugula, jicama salad
I was invited in to try a small plate and some wine.  I chose the Lobster Tempura, V chose the Filet Mignon.  
The lobster was fantastic.  The succulent lobster tail was juicy, tender and fried perfectly crisp.  The jicama salad had a nice spicy kick to it as well.  

V really liked the filet mignon.  She loved the sauces that it came with.  She said that the risotto came in smal nuggets that were slightly pan-fried to give them a slightly crispy exterior that gave way to a creamy interior.  
Fleming's in Newport Beach will also be starting Sunday brunch near the end of this month.  I can't wait to try it!
