Fleming's has done us all a solid here, and finally produced something meaningful. The concept is simple: take the already amazing (and apparently useless, according to Samsung) iPad and turn it into a portal to experience the whole cellar at Fleming's. Search their extensive menu of wines by the glass, filter by country, grape, preferred hangover... Hell, you can even play spin the bottle, and you don't have to kiss the troll it lands on, because the bottle always lands on a delicious glass of vino. And you can spend as many minutes as you want in heaven with the goblet of liquid velvet.
Also pleasantly delicious, a perfectly cooked filet, resting on top of a base of yummy sautéed mushrooms, and ordained with a brush of melted butter and some beautiful sprigs of fresh rosemary. I'll take it!
Lighten this load of protein dripping with fat (I swear, I'm not trying to talk dirty, it's just coming out of my fingers this way) with a beautiful salad of arugula, purple and golden beats, and goat cheese.
I can also recommend another installment of filet, this time served atop a creamy risotto and sprinkled with microgreens. I also had the opportunity to try the short rib. Yum. Period (aka swig of wine).
If you have been using the wine iPad properly, you should, by this point in your meal, be properly lubricated for a delicious bite of Fleming's carrot cake. Have it. Eat it. Make love to it. Just try not to get thrown out of the restaurant.
Thank you to Fleming's for sponsoring a dinner, with a few of my favorite winos, to try out this app and your delicious food. My face flushes at the thought of the next time the your wine iPad and I meet again.
