Best Las Vegas Steakhouses Serving Christmas Dinner
New York claims to be the city that never sleeps, and maybe that’s true, but Las Vegas is most definitely another city that never sleeps, so you’d expect to find a lot of places for eating, drinking and, of course, gambling, even on Christmas. Here’s a “lucky seven” listing of some of the best Las Vegas steakhouses serving Christmas dinner.
STK. STK has steakhouse locations all over the country, but the place never seems so “at home” as it does in Las Vegas. With dynamic interior design, contemporary vibe and ultra-hip clientele, STK creatively reinterprets classics, with artistically reimagined dishes like beef short rib cassoulet and lobster thermidor…with king crab. This is the kind of steakhouse that never lets you forget that you’re in Vegas, baby.
The Palm. The Palm is family owned and Italian focused, much like old Las Vegas. If you’re a smart gambler, you bet only on a sure thing, and that’s the way it is at The Palm on Christmas: you know you’re going to get the best. That’s why you came to The Palm. Whether you’re celebrating your winnings or another year well-spent, The Palm puts that aura of specialness on your meal, with menu items like a four-pound (!) Nova Scotia Lobster and a Prime Double Cut New York Strip Steak. The choice can be mind-boggling, but hey, it’s Christmas: you should treat yourself to both.
Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steakhouse. On a special occasion like the holidays, Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steakhouse offers the pitch-perfect level of excellence to match your holiday mood. There’s a selection of 45-day dry-aged steak – including the Double Bone Prime Ribeye – superb. If you’re looking for something just a little bit over-the-top, there’s Japanese A5 and Australian Wagyu that may force you to recalibrate your understanding of what makes a great steak. You may never have tasted steak this good. It doesn’t get much better than this.
Morton’s The Steakhouse. You cannot walk into a Morton’s The Steakhouse without feeling like it’s a special occasion, so on the holidays, you get a double-whammy of good cheer. Known throughout the country for unimpeachable quality, Morton’s The Steakhouse delivers USDA prime steak, right next door to the hoopla of the world-renowned casinos and other entertainment venues. About 2% of the country’s beef gets the “prime” designation, and when you sit down at Morton’s, you’ll feel like you’re in your prime.
Vic & Anthony’s Steakhouse. Located within the Golden Nugget casino, you’ll feel like you just hit a big jackpot when you see the beautiful beef the team at Vic & Anthony’s Steakhouse sets down before you. Because it’s the holidays, consider going for something special like a dry-aged USDA prime ribeye or, get this: a Tasmanian “Cape Grim” tomahawk or an A5 Japanese Wagyu. This level of steakmanship at Vic & Anthony’s Steakhouse is a little over the top, but it’s the holidays…and you deserve it.
Tom Colicchio’s Heritage Steak. “Top Chef” host/judge Tom Colicchio brings his mad kitchen skills to bear when preparing some of the finest red meat you’ll find anywhere in Las Vegas. Located in the Mirage, Tom Colicchio’s Heritage Steak is a perfect location for a holiday meal, with woodfire-grilled steaks like prime New York Strip and dry-aged double cut rib eyes, as well as a hefty selection of Wagyu, including Australian Flat Iron and Japanese A5. Did you have a good year? Here is where you want to celebrate that good fortune. Or did you have not-such-a-great year? Well then, after you’ve had a steak here, you’ll feel a whole lot better about the future.
Hank’s Fine Steak & Martinis. “Midcentury modern” is the term used to describe Hank’s Fine Steak & Martinis, with its chandeliers and exquisite wines, it hearkens back to the Vegas of an earlier era. The holidays are all about tradition, and you’ll taste that tradition of excellence when you tuck into a classic meal at Hank’s. Christmas specials include celery root bisque, Kurobuta pork roast and salt-crusted cod…and of course there’s always prime steak, aged for at least 28 days, served with style, making you feel like a kid on Christmas morning.
