Take a bite out of summer with a Chilled Seafood Tower at Fleming's Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar.
This appetizer is offered in two sizes. The smaller dish serves two to four appetizer servings, and the larger one serves four to six. Yet the large tower also makes a perfect entrée for two. Pair it with a bottle of Champagne for the perfect summer feast.
The Chilled Seafood Tower arrives and is set atop a copper stand. This glass dish is filled with a bed of crushed ice that mounds over the top. The ice gives it height and that “Wow!” factor and keeps the seafood chilled from the first bite to the last.
Lobster Tails and Alaskan King Crab Legs rise from the ice. Jumbo Shrimp and Snow Crab Claws encircle the sides of the dish. And small bowls of Super Lump Crabmeat and Seafood Ceviche—of scallops and squid—are nestled into the ice. Cocktail sauce, creamy mustard sauce with a hint of brandy, and lemon halves (wrapped in cheesecloth and tied with a ribbon) accompany the meal.
Fleming's Chilled Seafood Tower is festive and delicious from first bite to the last. Yet it is more than a meal. It is a culinary experience.
