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.

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:

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.”
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.

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).

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.

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:
@tomcolicchio We want Heritage Steak! When will it open?— VegasChatter (@vegaschatter) August 2, 2013
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:

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.
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.

Now, two months later, the resort is feeling a bit more confident about discussing the expected launch of Heritage Steak:
Silverado / Off Strip / Steakhouses / South Point / Eating / Dining / Restaurants / VegasChatter Reviews / → All Tags
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.
Holly Madison surprised and shocked us a few weeks ago. For the most part she's been out of the Vegas limelight since leaving Peepshow. First of all, this writer didn't realize that she frequented The Steakhouse at Circus Circus. It's not one of the celebrity hotspots we're used to seeing her at. But, we digress. The real shocker from Holly was the following tweet about the butter at The Steakhouse:
Had an amazing dinner @circusvegas Steakhouse as always-they need to bring back the cow-shaped butter, tho!— Holly Madison (@hollymadison) January 7, 2013

It's been just over two months since The Range shuttered at Harrah's to make way for a Ruth's Chris. But, if the Internet can be believed, the resort will soon be able to offer a steakhouse to guests again.
Word has it that Ruth's Chris will make its Harrah's debut in time for the Big Game on February 3. Even better news is that the new steakhouse will keep the same floor-to-ceiling views of the Strip that were offered by The Range. While design renderings have not been revealed, a press release issued last year detailed "a rich yet modern setting showcasing classic Las Vegas images overlaid with the New Orleans color and flavor from the historic restaurant’s roots."
