Anthony's Prime Steak At M Resort Is Worth The Trip

Where: 12300 Las Vegas Boulevard [map], 89044
February 13, 2014 at 4:36 PM | by | Comment (1)

M Resort is one of the nicest hotels in all of Las Vegas. Unfortunately, it's located away from the action of both The Strip and Downtown and is sometimes forgotten, even by people that live in Las Vegas (ahem, this guy). That's sad, but it leaves M Resort as a special place for people that enjoy a more relaxed Vegas experience.

Recently, this writer's intention of trying a new restaurant on the Vegas Strip was detoured when the idea of trying Anthony’s Prime Steak and Seafood at M Resort came up. This was the excuse I needed to drive a few miles away from The Strip to spend some time at M and I'm glad we did.

Anthony’s is located at the east end of the casino with many of its other dining options. It’s convenient to the lobby and parking lot. When I sat down Tuesday night, the restaurant was entirely empty but tables began filling by the time my dinner had ended. This was a night for steak so there was no funny business before receiving an 18 oz. dry aged, bone-in filet mignon.

Palms Reveals A Revamped N9NE

Where: 4321 W Flamingo [map], 89103
January 14, 2014 at 11:41 PM | by | Comments (2)

N9NE is looking fine (Whee! Rhymes!) at Palms after closing for a quick remodel.

The off-Strip steakhouse is back with a stylin' new decor, a revamped menu and the addition of Center Table (seen above). Described as a "semi-private dining experience with prime location in the heart of the restaurant," Center Table is encased in sheer drapes so we're going to call it the 'look at me.. no, don't look at me' table. Meanwhile, a redesigned lounge (pictured below) provides a better view of the restaurant as a whole.

Morels' Holiday Meal Is A Legit Deal

Where: 3325 Las Vegas Boulevard South [map], 89109

A couple years ago, this writer was staying at the Palazzo and noticed a sign for a special at Morels French Steakhouse on the elevator TV screen. Later, I found out that it was $40 for a full dinner, which included salad, NY Strip, mashed potatoes and creme brulee. I added some wine and charcuterie to the meal and it was delicious.

Even though the steak was a smaller cut than what was offered on the menu (12 ounce vs. 16 ounce), this was still a bargain as a full-sized NY Strip was $50 on the menu. When adding the salad and dessert this was a small savings and a great excuse to try an often overlooked steakhouse near the entrance of Palazzo.

Heritage Steak Is Wood-Grilled And Delicious

Where: 3400 Las Vegas Blvd South [map], 89109
November 1, 2013 at 2:44 PM | by | Comments (3)

There isn’t much that excites this writer than the prospect of finding a great new steak. That steak may be located on the Vegas Strip in a fancy steakhouse or in Downtown Vegas at a regular restaurant that may be as famous for their chicken parmigiana as their steak.

Even before Heritage Steakhad a name, my excitement was high for a new restaurant from Tom Colicchio. Then, Colicchio tweeted with us and things got a little swoony. Eager as I was to try Heritage Steak, it took me a while to get to The Mirage. But, a couple of beers into a conversation and a check of the OpenTable app and I had a reservation. Turns out that was a good thing:

At Silver Sevens, Ribs Are Back, Oktoberfest Arrives And So Does A New Resto

Where: 4100 Paradise Road [map], 89169
October 15, 2013 at 6:42 PM | by | Comments (0)

Silver Sevens fell off of our list of cheap dining destinations after their café really let us down. The steak and lobster special, priced at $7.77, should never be repeated. The price hike on the BBQ ribs put Ellis Island way ahead in the race for baby-back value. We still haven’t made it to the buffet, but from what we hear, we’re not missing anything. Silver Sevens was slipping further and further from our thoughts, until we saw the sign:

“Baby Back Ribs $9.99.”

They’re back!

Maybe our complaining worked. Or, perhaps it was a pre-planned effort to boost October BBQ sales. Whatever the case, we are glad to see order restored to the universe. At $9.99 for a full rack of baby back ribs, this is once again an exceptional value. Just as before, it’s not listed on the menu. You’ll need to ask for the deal and it also requires a (free) A-Play card.

Our First Taste of BLT Steak at Bally's

Where: 3645 Las Vegas Boulevard [map], 89109
October 7, 2013 at 8:10 PM | by | Comments (3)

Sometimes a full restaurant review just won't do. Perhaps, there wasn't time for an A-Z meal. Maybe it's a restaurant we've written about before. Or a dog ate our good pictures. There may still be that one dish worth writing about. A new one, an old one. A newsworthy one or a memorable one (for better or worse). It might be the one dish, or drink, out of the whole experience that gets us to return. Or, stay away.

While previewing the fixtures, furnishings and rooftop pools of the coming Gansevoort last week, media types were given a taste of another project Caesars executives are working on. Unfortunately, Giada wasn't making our mouths water. Instead, and with little fanfare, sample bites from the upcoming BLT Steak were passed.

BLT Steak -- yes, sister to Mirage's BLT Burger -- will replace Bally's Steakhouse early next year. The advertised signature popovers were absent, but guests were treated to Tuna Tartar (dressed with soy-lime atop a tad too much avocado), Ginger Marinated Tomatoes (with Burrata cheese) and BBQ Short-Rib Sliders (with aged white cheddar and homemade pickles).

At The Mirage, Heritage Steak Arrives, And So Has Its Menu

Where: 3400 Las Vegas Boulevard South [map], 89109
August 19, 2013 at 12:23 PM | by | Comments (3)

After hearing it straight from Tom Colicchio's mouth Twitter account, the date has arrived. The top chef's second Vegas restaurant, Heritage Steak, opens tonight at The Mirage.

The renovated Kokomo's space continues to feature views of the resort's verdant atrium, but its entrance has been changed, moving from off the lobby to off the casino floor. Kokomo's lobby bar is still there, dubbed now just Lobby Bar, but it no longer allows entry into the restaurant. A solid black wall blocks it completely from view. Heritage Steak offers another bar of its own, located close to Japonais where its entrance can now be found.

Oh, You Know.. Just Tweeting About Steak With Tom Colicchio

August 2, 2013 at 10:29 PM | by | Comments (2)

We've been trying to wait patiently for the opening of Top Chef Tom Colicchio's second Vegas outpost, Heritage Steak at The Mirage, but that's not really one of our strong points.

A once hoped for July debut was pushed back to August, but August when? And, would that just be bumped to September instead? With anticipation killing us, we took a shot in the dark by tweeting up the man himself:

Of course, we didn't really expect to receive a tweet back. Especially after almost a whole day went by. But, then something amazing happened:

The Vegas Dining Deal You May Not Know About

May 23, 2013 at 2:33 PM | by | Comment (1)

In case you missed it, VegasChatter has been over-the-top impressed with PRESS, the new lounge/lobby bar/small bites restaurant/breakfast spot/early morning coffee bar/late night coffee cocktail bar/poolside retreat at the Four Seasons. It's universally a multi-purpose success. Seriously, we'd be willing to pay rent if they'd let us sleep on one of the comfy banquettes.

If coffee, hand-crafted cocktails and Baked Alaska doesn't have you convinced, there's another compelling reason to visit the Four Seasons. One that's been a staple of the resort for years, but somehow remains a lower profile restaurant in the Strip dining scene.

How Does Gordon Ramsay Steak Stand Up A Year Later?

Where: 3655 Las Vegas Boulevard South [map], 89109
May 8, 2013 at 1:28 PM | by | Comments (2)

When Gordon Ramsay Steak opened at Paris Las Vegas last year, it was the toughest table in town but garnered pretty darn good reviews from the fortunate early-goers. Another VegasChatter writer gambled on the menu's higher prices and walked away with one of his top five steaks of the year.

With Ramsay expanding his restaurant empire seemingly into any space with a heartbeat over the past year, we wondered how his Vegas first held up under his ever diversifying attention. When the occasion recently arose to splurge on a unique dining experience, this writer took the plunge for his first visit to GR Steak.

The Mirage Announces An Opening Month For Heritage Steak

The Mirage closed Kokomo's to make way for a Tom Colicchio steakhouse back in January, but only attached a vague "summer" opening to its debut.

Now, two months later, the resort is feeling a bit more confident about discussing the expected launch of Heritage Steak:

Tasted: Silverado Steakhouse

March 26, 2013 at 1:26 PM | by | Comments (0)

A while back, we were told that the Silverado Steakhouse at South Point was one of those hidden Vegas gems. Recently, we finally got a chance to check it out. Many casinos will tuck their best restaurants away from the entrance so you have to walk through the casino before you reach your destination. That's not the case with Silverado, which is located by the main entrance and garage parking.

Arriving early for our dinner reservation allowed us to take that lap through the casino, anyway. Thankfully, the Silverado Steakhouse is located by the door and fresh air so we could get the smoke out of our eyes from the walk. There is no bar inside the Silverado Steakhouse, rather it's a few feet outside of the restaurant if you want to meet people.
