Old Homestead Steakhouse - Las Vegas
The iconic steakhouse known as Old Homestead--which has been around since 1868--now boasts an outpost at Caesars Palace. Brothers Marc and Greg Sherry, whose family has been associated with the original location for decades, let Vegas get a taste of its fine cuts and legendary history. Complemented by sultry décor, dark wood and burgundy leather booths, Old Homestead's urban dining room and bar feels like a familiar favorite.
It also cranks out prime aged USDA Texas-size slabs of beef. For example, Old Homestead specializes in sirloin, porterhouse or filet mignon, but also non-steak dishes like Colorado rack of lamb, grilled chicken and crabmeat-stuffed shrimp.
Those looking for something extra special may indulge in a 10-ounce Japanese Kobe beef that's $280. The delicacy doesn't come with sides, but the menu offers a number of appropriate accompaniments such as roasted mushrooms, a truffle mac 'n' cheese and bacon creamed spinach.
Those heading to one of the many shows at the hotel may want to take advantage of the three-course meal for $75 per person. It's offered 5-7pm Sunday through Thursday and includes options like French onion soup, black Angus filet mignon and the "big fat" chocolate cake.
