Beverly Hills Getting Its Eighth Steakhouse in 0.6 Miles

Fleming's, due in November on Beverly Drive

As if there wasn't enough steak on the 90210 streets, national steakhouse chain Fleming's is opening its first new store in four years in Beverly Hills, joining such nearby steak-slinging competitors as Cut, Mastro's, Grill on the Alley, Ruth's Chris, McCormick & Schmick's, Wolfgang's Steakhouse, and South Beverly Grill with a new location set to open in November on Beverly Drive. Whew!

According to the Newport Beach-bred chain's announcement, Fleming's has had its eye on the space, previously occupied by the California Pizza Kitchen owners' L.A. Food Show, for a while now. The new 7,200-square-foot restaurant will have room for 250 guests, a two-story wine room, and glassed-in patio so passersby can gawk over everybody's steaks and seafood on their way down to Momed.

So, does Beverly Hills really need an eighth steakhouse in less than a single mile? Maybe not, but then again, Beverly Hills is famous for buying a lot of things it doesn't exactly need.
