Brunch Pick: Fleming’s

Filet mignon Benedict
Springtime begs one question louder than any other: “Where should we do brunch this weekend?” To answer that question on Easter Sunday, Mother’s Day, and Father’s Day, Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar, in Summerlin, will offer a delectable three-course brunch ($34.95).
Created by executive chef Russell Skall, the menu is both indulgent and refined. Start off with either a wedge salad or fruit medley and then choose from main courses such as New Orleans-style French toast topped with Chantilly cream and berries; filet mignon Benedict with herb béarnaise; shrimp or filet mignon frittatas; and filet mignon Cobb salad. Don’t forget a side of potatoes O’Brien.
Dessert options include crème brûlée, white chocolate bread pudding, and walnut turtle pie. And it wouldn’t be a proper Sunday brunch without a little booze. For that, wine director Maeve Pesquera offers up a Blood Orange Fizz “celebration cocktail” combining Solerno Blood Orange Liqueur, Stoli Vodka, fresh lemon juice, and a splash of club soda. 8721 W. Charleston Blvd., 702-838-4774
