NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., March 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Brunch lovers, rejoice. Spring is the single season where brunch is celebrated at Fleming's. Beginning with Easter and followed by Mother's and Father's Day, Fleming's Prime Steakhouse & Wine Barserves an elegant three course sit-down menu with a focus on deliciously traditional dishes. Brunch hours on April 8th, Easter Sunday, are 11:30 AM to 3 PM. The prix fixe menu, offering mouth-watering choices in each course, is $34.95 per person with a children's version for $16.95. Blood Orange Fizz, a new brunch cocktail bright with citrus flavors, is offered at a special price of $6.95. Fleming's traditional a la carte menu will also be available.
"Sunday Brunch always brings back memories of great family get-togethers and traditional dishes," said Russell Skall, Fleming's Executive Chef who created the menu. "There are four excellent entrees, but my favorites are the Filet Mignon Benedict and the New Orleans-StyleFrench Toast—both modern classics that don't get any better."
For the Benedict, tender filet mignon is cooked to order, topped with impeccably poached eggs, then crowned with buttery bearnaise sauce tasting of fresh lemon, shallots, and tarragon. Fleming's New Orleans-Style French Toast is made from thick slices of rich brioche bread soaked in Grand Marnier-flavored cinnamon batter, then cooked in butter until crisp and golden brown on the outside with a velvety interior. A generous dollop of housemade chantilly cream and fresh berries make for a decadent topping. Shrimp or Filet Frittata and a Steakhouse Filet Mignon Cobb Salad round out the main course offerings. Guests start with Fleming's signature Wedge Salad or a Fresh Fruit Medley, and desserts don't disappoint, with choice of Creme Brulee, White Chocolate Bread Pudding or Walnut Turtle Pie.
The children's menu for those under 12 begins with a fresh fruit salad followed by four kid-pleasing entrees, a sundae or sorbet for dessert and includes a beverage.
A brunch cocktail, the Blood Orange Fizz, has been created by Maeve Pesquera, Fleming's Director of Wine, and is priced at only $6.95. Solerno Blood Orange Liqueur, Stoli Vodka, fresh lemon juice and a splash of club soda is served on the rocks.
