Pre-game for the Marathon

Whether you’re running or not, the Bank of America Chicago Marathon is an apt excuse to splurge on pasta and meat with reckless abandon, all in the name of “fueling up.” The carbs and proteins are essential for maintaining stamina for a 26-mile race. And even if you’re not participating, it’s always nice to eat with your friends out of solidarity, right? Here are some fine suggestions for pre-Marathon dining this year in Chicago:
.
Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse: Marathon-runners all know about fueling up with pasta and carbs. But just as important is a good portion of protein to help amp up your stamina. You can easily do so at Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar in River North. This place is meaty Mecca, with protein sources derived from all over. Whatever fits your fancy and whatever puts a skip in your step/jog, Fleming’s has you covered. Start by sharing small plates like sliced filet mignon and petite New Zealand lamb chops before beefing things up with heartier plates like their prime bone-in rib-eye, prime New York strip, peppercorn steak, and truffle-poached lobster. On Sunday night, unwind after the race with their prime rib dinner, available only on Sunday nights.
