What it’s like at StripSteak at Mandalay Bay Las Vegas?
Ever since StripSteak opened at the Mandalay Bay I have enjoyed the lounge area. It is comfortable, it looks very nice and the atmosphere is a toned down level of hip that invites you to stick around for an extra drink. The bar area is perfect if you are thinking of having a quick quality meal but you don’t want the full blown restaurant experience.
The restaurant is what I term Vegas elegant; there is a luxurious feel to it but not in the way that the restaurant your parents took you to was fancy. StripSteak is modern, somewhat edgy and the dinning room is set up nice for a classy, date night type of meal.
Michael Mina is the Chef and he has decided to cook your steak for way longer than you ever thought possible. What that means is that you are going to be very close to experiencing perfection in the form of a piece of beef.
The process is well documented but I will give you a quick synopsis, a few hours of low heat as your dinner is infused with the flavors of the mesquite providing the heat. These slow poaching chambers change the chemistry of the meat and enlighten your taste buds.
You’ll hear great tales of the Slow Poached Bone in Top Loin, it is epic, it is a masterpiece and frankly StripSteak Las Vegas should give you a picture of it when you leave, however, there are a few other choices that you might need to consider.
- The American Kobe Rib-Eye is so well marbled that you’ll taste every morsel of unstressed fat in each bite. This is a meat eating experience that will move you to an appreciation for grass fed, free roaming organic beef. It will be hard for you to come back from a piece of beef like the Kobe Rib-Eye.
- If you are a big eater, the Porterhouse steak will meet your expectations and fulfill your need to eat in large quantities. You’ll get the same explosive flavors as well as the subtle nuances of the slow cooking process.
- StripSteak is about steak but don’t be afraid to sample the Ahi or the Swordfish. If you are in need of appetizer you should consider the Lobster Fritters or the Tuna Poppers.
Did I mention they have wine? An award winning wine list should help you part ways with a tiny bit more money. You will spend a decent amount of cash at StripSteak however you will find that the food is worth every penny.
