What you should try at Center Cut Steakhouse at Flamingo Las Vegas:
- Trio Bacon Satay – Imagine a thick slice of heaven served to you with chili peppers and cheese. If I had a beer and this bacon I would not have to have much more of anything to make me happy. Pork lovers will consider ordering a second portion.
- Crab cakes – I know you’re thinking, “Crab Cakes in the desert?” Yeah, the chef did his time making some real crab cakes so you’ll be impressed by his need for a crusty on the outside creamy on the inside piece of adult candy.
- Lobster Bisque - Crippling creamy greatness. There is a slight sweet finish that tells me this lobster sat on the ocean floor snacking on something sweet.
- NY Strip – While I could use more char on my steak this very nice piece of beef delivered in the flavor category. If you like your beef to taste like beef Center Cut Steakhouse is serving just that.
- Rack of Lamb – Please, whatever you do, consider the lamb. It may just change your life. You’ll say, “I’m not a fan of lamb” but what I’m saying is consider the richness that is THIS rack of lamb. The flavor is different than beef only in that it is more complex and has a layering effect on your taste buds. The meat is tender and seems to melt in your mouth delivering the richness of the flavor. I’m lucky enough to try a lot of food and I’m now putting this on my “must have” list.
