At first we ribbed Fleming’s Prime for bringing yet another steakhouse to the beef-blocked arteries of Beverly Hills. But it actually arrived with one hell of a happy hour, bringing a rare deal to fancy-pants North Beverly Drive. Upon opening each afternoon, the restaurant offers “Five for Six ‘Til Seven,” an affordable stretch featuring five small plates, cocktails, and wines by the glass for just six dollars until 7:00 P.M. Dishes change on occasion, but always include the restaurant’s cheese and bacon-topped Prime Burger, along with dishes like tenderloin carpaccio and a jumbo shrimp cocktail, backed by palate-washes like a Jim Beam Manhattan and cava and Cointreau Ruby Slipper. Knowing the 90210, you’ll probably pay more for parking than to get your fade on. 252 North Beverly Dr.
