If you’re treating yourself in Vegas, chances are, you’re in the mood for a really, really good steak. We sat down with three chefs of the best steakhouses in Vegas to see what they’re dishing up.
STK (The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas)
Featured dishes: Ribeye Cap and Mushroom Pot Pie
Vibe: Trendy steakhouse with an in-house DJ
Tip: This is the perfect pre-club dinner spot.
Dubbed as “Not Your Daddy’s Steakhouse,” this celebrity hot spot combines a luxury steakhouse with a nightlife vibe. Beef aficionados will love the ribeye cap—chef Stephen Hopcraft separates the best part of the ribeye, layers three rib caps on top of each other, and slices them so they bond. Other than the ribeye cap and mushroom pot pie, we recommend the Lil BRGs (add foie gras!), Tuna Tartare, and the Sweet Potato Donuts for dessert.
Bazaar Meat by José Andrés (SAHARA Las Vegas)
Featured dish: Albondigas (Spanish meatballs)
Vibe: Off the wall and artsy, yet upscale
Pro Tip: Expect to spend two to three hours here for the full dining experience.
James Beard Award-winning and Michelin-starred chef José Andrés goes beyond the traditional steakhouse at Bazaar Meat with a social and shared plates dining experience. Rated as one of the top steakhouses in America, this Philippe Starck-designed restaurant is the place to go for inventive meat cuts. We recommend a few dishes (besides the albondigas): Cotton Candy Foie Gras, Jamón Ibérico de Bellota, and the signature Suckling Pig.
Featured dishes: Double Porterhouse and Charred Spanish Octopus
Vibe: Luxurious and intimate, with a rock and roll twist
Tip: Pregame Magic Mike Live next door with the cotton candy Magic Mike cocktail.
MB Steak is a luxury steakhouse that represents a long family line of restaurateurs. Brothers David Morton and Michael Morton launched MB Steak to be an old-school Vegas steakhouse with an upscale ambiance. Start with the Charred Spanish Octopus, and then move on to the 32-ounce Double Porterhouse—both perfect to share. Be sure to take advantage of the restaurant’s private valet as well.
