Fleming's Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar is hosting a paired wine dinner which offers a chance to taste wines from Sonoma and Napa.
Trivial Fact: The P.F. in P.F. Chang's China Bistro stands for Paul Fleming, who also created Z'Tejas Southwestern Grill, Pei Wei Asian Diner and the Flemings Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar franchise.
I'm a big fan of all of these restaurants (and wish they'd open at least a Pei Wei near me) but ironically I don't recall having ever visiting a Fleming's Steakhouse. Here's what's in store:
Blue Cheese Flatbread

GLORIA FERRER, Blanc de Noirs Sonoma County NV
Bodega Bay Crab Cocktail
California Dungeness crab, citrus relish, fruit infusion

Layers of Gala apples, laced with cinnamon & nutmeg with an aged Wisconsin cheddar crumble
