Dinner @ Flemings.

Helen and I went to Flemings for a little date night last Friday. It was lovely. We started out getting cocktails and some appetizers at the bar. Watched some of the Heat/Hawks game and took advantage of their 5 for 6 til 7 deal. Seriously people, get into this. It's amazing. Once we sat down at our corner booth, we shared a Cesar Salad. Their fresh loaf of bread with champagne brie and tomato chipotle butter was outstanding.

For my main course, I got the double thick pork rib chop, baked with apple cider, creole mustard, and julienned apples and jicama. It was exceptional. The perfect compliment of flavors for this giant, piece of pork that was still on the bone.


Corkage fee ($20) is where it's at. Brought a bottle of Merdian 2006 Limited Release Pinot Noir. Helen made a good choice.

For sides, we shared the chipotle cheddar macaroni and cheese and Fleimings potatoes.  The mac and cheese will blow your mind. The potatoes had the right amount of spice from the jalapenos and cream. You can't go wrong with meat and potatoes.


For dessert, the chocolate lave cake with homemade vanilla ice cream. It was as savory and intense as it sounds. All in all, I have to say it was the best meal of '09. Food Coma Status.

The end.
