Even though the menu is old school steakhouse the room is a bit more of the traditional Las Vegas “lets make everyone feel hip and cool” type of space. I’ll tell you that the light in the dining room makes me look ten years younger and the bar area is the type of place I could sit around nursing a beer in . The tables that run along the edge of the restaurant have some of the best people watching in Las Vegas and really crank up the energy. Sit further away and against the wall and it almost feels cozy and on the verge of romantic.
While the food is pure steakhouse the dining experience is very Las Vegas. The energy of those heading to a show or about to embark on a night at the clubs feeds the atmosphere while the staff is knowledgeable and personable making for a lively room.
The beef comes from a very reputable butcher in NYC. The Chef, Tim Henderson, displays a work ethic and passion for food and fun that is the recipe for success in Las Vegas. The menu doesn’t attempt to do anything other than to give you a quality Steakhouse experience. If you are looking for simple, pure, classic steakhouse you will be pleased.
- Maine lobster bisque – Yes, it will most likely clot an artery or two but it has all the flavors you expect from a bisque that will carve out a spot in your memory and force you to come back.
- Kobe Meatball – This meatball has some structure. It is a beefy example of an appetizer for a meal. It will fill you up if you allow it so be careful. If you need a little meat to start your steakhouse experience this is the way to go. You could get it to go and then stuff it into a sandwich for an epic meatball sandwich.
- Kitchen Sink Salad – You want to share the kitchen sink salad and thoroughly enjoy the flavors. Shrimp, salami and bacon would be enough but then they toss in some avocado and blue cheese with a zesty vinaigrette and you are blown away.
- Lollipop Ribeye – You might remember this from Nero’s when it was housed in this space. This piece of beef is better and I will ay that the kitchen is working the char on the beef way better.
- BEEF! – You’ll head to Old Homestead Steakhouse at Caesars Palace for beef and you will not be disappointed. Check out the char on that steak and you get a decent idea that somebody is standing in front of the flames that not only knows what they are doing they care about how they do it.
- The sides – The tater tots are frankly too good to pass up and might require you to save a few for breakfast. The Gnocchi hides the flavor inside its fabulous package like a well wrapped Christmas gift. You might need the “Duck Fat” fries and you probably will not be able to stop eating them.
