Well, he didnt restore the Danish cuisine, instead he took it all away and left us with USUAL CUISINE.

We can go anywhere and get regular south florida cuisine.

so sad. He should have left it alone

It is very sad to see what Fleming J. had created be reduced to a South Beach cuisine with the over pricing to match. Thank God part ot the old Fleming group is successful at Pinecrest Bistro just a couple of lights up the highway. There is a place that carries on the old Fleming charm with fresh new menu ideas. So long Fleming, hello Pinecrest Bistro.

I think the food is great! Everyone should be a little open to change. I hear they have put some of the old favorite items back on the menu. I think saying your never going to eat there agian is a little hasty.

Its funny how porochial some of the comments here are. And Samuel's deserves comment.... If your not going to eat there again Sam, at least qualify your statement. Empty statements like this dont help anyone.
And, lets get serious, what the exactly is 'South Beach Cuisine'? I think some of you are perhaps a little bit stupid ....? Or perhaps have never visited Europe ? mmmm, ok, I understand these comments now....

Just a note for all you "I will never eat there again". Tradition is back with all the "free" items included with a very tasty menu with some new twist and smaller menu. I have been going to Fleming a long time and they have done everything to bring in the new and hold on to tradition. The food, service and price is right.(Note: Pinecrest Bistro didn't make it and are now closed without notice to employees) Fleming is still a restaurant of choice and solid. Your loss if you gave up on their commitment to quality and service with or without Fleming J the quality is still there.

I would have to agree with Kristin 100%,Thank you for saying what you did. Pete, Bob, and Samuel are rude. So many new wonderful items have been added to the menu and many of the traditional items were kept. There is nothing South Beach about Fleming..not that there are not wonderful places to eat on the beach however, Fleming is a local, timeless favorite.

I just saw the Kitchen Nightmare episode featuring this restaurant. Few things I want to know...

1) Why did the new owners hire a Cuban to cook Danish food? If they got themselves a proper Scandinavian (hell even a Dutch or German chef) the cuisine wouldn't have gone so downhill. Fidel obviously was unable to cook Danish -- and didn't care to learn.

2) Why have a Hispanic hostess? Again with the whole Hispanic employees thing in a restaurant that's supposed to be about Denmark?!

It's Miami,it's like 70% TO 98% hispanic depending on the area,I know the area as I live about 15 minutes from there,this area is actually closer to 70% hispanic so there are still some anglos there.In reality they could have put a chef from anywhere in there,the problem was more likely that hispanics just aren't interested in this type of restaurant on top of whatever other problems this place had.On top of that the economy wasn't helping as even latin restaurants are closing in Miami.I saw the show realistically they would have needed a total revamp to save the restaurant and I don't think Ramsey went that far.

The lady owner called the elderly "old farts". I'll never go there.
