Phase two of the L.A. Live continues to roll with the Grand Opening of Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar today. The seven thousand foot restaurant at the southwest corner of Olympic and Figueroa has seating for 300 guests in its richly appointed dining room and room for another fifty on the outdoor patio that stretches along Olympic.

The restaurant also features four private dining rooms one of which can be seen from the street as a glass enclosed wine cellar.

A national chain of 61 restaurants, Fleming’s is best known for their steaks. Having attended a pre-opening tasting, this writer can attest to being at a table of happy filet mignon eaters. I can personally vouch for the Caesar and the Potato’s Fleming. It should be pointed out that Fleming’s steaks are wet aged and cut on the premises giving them a freshness that most prime steakhouses cannot equal.

Operating partner Jennifer Adams is a native Angelino and in this spirit has said, “We’ll be doing some events just for the community.”

This writer couldn’t get the cost of construction out of management, but inside sources have put the number at more than six million dollars. Having personally seen the space and tasted the food—it seems to be money well spent. Downtown can feel good about celebrating this addition to the neighborhood.
