Celebrate the holidays with Fleming’s

Fleming’s introduces a holiday cocktail and 3-day New Year’s celebration

It’s that time of year, when the chill in the air and decorations on the houses say the holidays are here. Each year, Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar creates a special holiday cocktail just for the occasion. This year, Fleming’s decided to create a contemporary whiskey cocktail; something as cozy as a hot toddy, but cool and sophisticated as a martini. With Maker’s Mark, Chambord and holiday juices of cranberry, citrus and pomegranate to add tartness, Fleming’s has created the Merry Maker’s, available now through December 31 for $10.95.

Join Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar for New Year’s with Veuve Clicquot. In typical Fleming’s fashion, the restaurant is going over-the-top with a three-day New Year’s celebration: Thursday, Dec. 30; Friday, Dec. 31; and Saturday, Jan. 1.

Begin the evening with a glass of legendary Veuve Clicquot Champagne, $25. Then indulge yourself with a Fleming’s favorite, or enjoy a special New Year’s selection and selected wine pairing available New Year’s weekend only. Seating is limited for the three-night celebration at both Chicago area Fleming’s locations: 25 E. Ohio St., 312-329-9463; and 960 Milwaukee Ave., Lincolnshire, Ill. 847-793-0333.

The New Year’s celebration menu features Filet Mignon & Crab-Stuffed Shrimp, filet mignon with Madeira sauce, two giant black tiger shrimp stuffed with crab and topped with crisp bacon, lemon garlic butter sauce, served with a butter poached Portobello mushroom, $79.95. (Suggested pairing: Rodney Strong, Merlot Sonoma County, 2006/2007); North Atlantic Lobster Tail, a colossal one-pound lobster tail with lemon vanilla butter, served with lobster mac & cheese, $59.95. (Suggested pairing: BENZIGER, Chardonnay Carneros, 2007/2008); or New York Strip & Giant Shrimp, petite New York prime steak wrapped in bacon, two giant black tiger shrimp broiled in the shell with chimichurri herb pesto, $69.95. (Suggested pairing: CATENA, Malbec Mendoza Argentina, 2008). Cost does not include wine, tax or gratuity.

The nationally acclaimed Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar offers the best steakhouse dining – prime meats and chops, fresh fish and poultry, generous salads and side orders – with a unique wine list known as the “Fleming’s 100” that features 100 wines served by the glass. Fleming’s is the recipient of numerous prestigious awards, including Wine Enthusiast’s annual Awards of Distinction and Wine Spectator’s annual Awards of Excellence.
