Beauty-Full Girls Giveaway - $50 to Fleming's Steakhouse

UPDATE: Congratulations to Helia who said, "Flemings has an amazing Happy Hour!!! And their carpaccio is so delicious! I'm definitely going to try the Farmer's Daughter cocktail (basil AND strawberries!!!)" for winning the $50 gift certificate to Fleming's Steakhouse & Wine Bar! Enjoy your tasty girls night out! 

Fleming's Steakhouse and Wine Bar asked me to come in to see how a Beauty-Full girl could navigate their way through the more figure friendly options at a steakhouse.  It couldn't have been at a better time since I am ABOUT to get serious about losing this baby weight.  Let's just say that there has been a lot of indulging on my part these last 11 weeks! I was definitely up for the challenge of seeing how Fleming's could be a little more figure friendly for a girls night out.

I asked my BFF, Linsey, to join me for an afternoon of shopping in Walnut Creek and then a girls night out dinner at Fleming's.  After a couple hours of shopping, we were definitely ready to try out their 99 calorie cocktails!  I had the Farmer's Daughter (picture above) that consisted of muddled strawberries and basil. It was delicious and in no way seemed like it was only 99 calories. Another please! I will include the recipe below.  Another one of their 99 calorie cocktails is the Russian Prom Queen (recipe above).

What I liked about Fleming's menu is the amount of options that are available to you if you want to eat on the lighter side. If you are good enough to do your research beforehand, Fleming's has a great healthy weight loss section on their website that recommends what you should order and how to order (dressing on side, ask them to grill in light oil, steamed instead of sauteed, order your petit filet mignon without butter, etc).  They also advise you on the Gluten-Free options and other special diets.  They also have a nice selection of seafood options as well that can be prepared on the lighter side if you are not in the mood for a steak.  I was most impressed at how accommodating they are to any diet or allergy restrictions. They will take items off of an appetizer or entree and can put any sauce or dressing on the side.  After choosing some lighter choices, you feel better about indulging in some of their delicious desserts.  I am still dreaming about their Frozen Lemon Gingersnap Pie.

Fleming's is providing me with a $50 gift certificate to giveaway to one of my lucky readers!  All you need to do is leave a comment below and share with me how you would make your experience Beauty-full at Fleming's.  The deadline for the giveaway will be September 2nd, 2011 at 6pm PST.  You must be a follower of Savvy in San Francisco via Google Friend Connect (on the right side of the blog), Twitter or Facebook to qualify.

  5. I have been in eating at Flemmings since I found one close to my work in Palo Alto and always enjoy indulging in a little happy hour time there! As per my usual order I would get the burger, w/o mayo, and only eat half, as that is already plenty, and order a glass of Syrah to compliment the decadent but not over the top burger,and get my antioxidants while I'm at it!! Maybe my date and I will share a dessert to keep the calorie count down :)
