I received an invitation to come to Fleming's Steakhouse in Metairie, LA and I gladly accepted it. Y'all!! I am about my food blog life!!! I love Steakhouses, but I don't, generally, eat meat. I won't discriminate on any restaurants..I am an Equal Opportunity Foodie! Fleming's is a franchise in many different states. I have not been to many outside of this location except Memphis.
About the meal, I got a full spread of food..so here's the tea! No, really - I got tea as a beverage. Even though I am a Southern girl, I prefer adding my own sugar (QUEEN). The full spread consisted of: Jumbo Shrimp Cocktail (I could have eaten a dozen) with horseradish cocktail sauce, seasonal soup that was Lobster Bisque, choice of mouthwatering Filet Mignon, Breast of Chicken or Crab Cakes..HMMM! I will take the Crab Cakes. What a wise decision!! Many of my friends asked me if I tried the crab cakes after I told them I went to Fleming's.. (YES). My sides were Yukon Gold Mashed Potatoes, Lobster Mac & Cheese. Awesome!!
Now that's alot of FOOD! I have to breakdown my feelings on each item. The Crab Cakes, of course, are a favorite. I was torn between them and the Chicken Breast. I made the BEST decision for my taste buds because that lime butter sauce with that roasted pepper really had a good flavor. The Lobster Bisque was so good. If you get the option to try this soup, please get it. They are not always on the menu. Now, that's the SOUP OF THE DAY! Next, let's talk some sides. The mashed potatoes and mac & cheese were really good to eat together. If I had to choose which was my fave, I would go for the mac & cheese. I am crazy about mac when my mom or my sister cook's it. Adding a lobster taste to it, just makes me cry! It was so good. I am a girl that like's many options. I would suggest plate sharing sides. Let's not over complicate things and have separate plates!
I did not eat the Cheesecake. I was too full to open my mouth.
Did you know? Fleming's had a private room that is perfect for parties and events. It is really nice for group events and the service is also excellent.
Walkin out Fleming's singing..Pretty Woman..walkin down the street! That's a side blog note I wanted to make. Something about walking out this restaurant had me feeling like Julia Roberts walking down the street.
This place is perfect for....having quiet time at the bar with yourself and a cocktail, I love dating my husband. This would be a great date night spot! Single Girls..still looking for that next spot? Come and try. Also, those girls nights and private parties. I say YES!
Let the Good times roll!
