Best Steak Lunch in Las Vegas
Okay, so *maybe* you stayed up a too little late last night and woke up more than a little hungry. There are always the abundant breakfast buffets, but let’s say you want something a little more substantial, something you can really sink your teeth into. Let’s say you want steak.
Of course, you know you can grab a quick steak at places like Outback, and there’s nothing wrong with that, of course, but here some other places that are well worth the visit and where you can enjoy a beautiful piece of beef and fortify yourself for the day to come, all in comfortable surroundings, a cut above the rest.
Though many of the meccas of meat in Las Vegas are open only for dinner, here are some that serve a mean midday munch.
Echo & Rig Butcher & Steakhouse Las Vegas. Stepping away from the stereotypical steakhouse – “masculine vibe, dark rooms, fancy waiters, slabs of oversized beef and overly expensive pricing – Edge & Ride has created a comfortable, casual atmosphere, where you can enjoy some truly marvelous meat. We suggest the USDA prime flat iron steak, perked with lightly spiced chimichurri, guaranteed to wake you up and get you going, or the filet mignon tips with potatoes, onions, tomatoes and Peruvian demi-glace, a super high-end hobo skillet.
The Palm Restaurant Las Vegas. Close by Caesar’s Palace and the Coliseum, The Palm Restaurant Las Vegas carries on the proud tradition of this world-class restaurant. The Chairman’s Reserve New York Strip, roasted in shallot butter, is the centerpiece of the lunch menu, but if you’re not in the mood for using your knife and fork, there are a good range of hamburgers, prepared with a smashing blend of short rib, brisket and chuck.
Joe’s Seafood, Prime Steak & Stone Crab. As the name implies, Joe’s Seafood, Prime Steak & Stone Crab is heavy on the seafood offerings, and there’s a tremendous selection of fish and seafood here, but when you want steak, you want steak. Period. At Joe’s, there are a few lunch favorites that focus on the red meat, like an eight-ounce filet mignon and a twelve-ounce New York strip steak. Consider getting a side of the stone crabs, which are some of the best you will ever taste (even better when enjoyed with a steak).
Delmonico Steakhouse. Conveniently located in The Venetian, Delmonico Steakhouse is an Emeril Lagasse restaurant that serves a truly impressive collection of incredible red meat, even at lunchtime, all hand-cut, creole-seasoned and char-broiled at 1200 degrees. This is the next level steak you’d expect to see at dinner, but which is rarely served at lunchtime. U.S.D. A. prime bone-in ribeye or New York Strip, as well as the filet, are all served with the traditional accompaniments like creamed spinach and twice-baked potato.
