10 Great Las Vegas Steakhouses
By Larry Olmsted
Las Vegas and steakhouses go together like red meat and excess, and no other city, not New York, Chicago or Omaha, can match the array of protein temples Sin City offers up. Not only does Las Vegas have many excellent places to eat steak, but here they come in every shape, style and price point, with dry aged USDA Prime alongside the very first restaurant in the U.S. officially licensed to serve real Japanese Kobe beef. There are plenty of traditional, old school steakhouses like the Golden Steer, the city’s oldest, which has served Ali, DiMaggio, Elvis, and even the Chairman of the Board himself, Sinatra. Here tuxedoed waiters debone Dover sole and toss Caesar salads tableside while big cabs are poured and diners slowly sink into deep red leather banquettes. Today the Steer is hotter than ever, and on any given night you might see contemporary regulars like Nicholas Cage or Mario Andretti chowing down.
