First Look: Center Cut Steakhouse at Flamingo
It’s time for a meaty new offering at Flamingo Las Vegas. The official grand opening of Center Cut Steakhouse is April 1, and we’ve got a sneak peek at the food and decor at this schnazzy new restaurant offering.
The Center Cut Steakhouse, in the former home of The Burger Joint, features a black and white decor, going for a classic Vegas atmosphere. Unobtrusive plasma TVs throughout the restaurant display photos of classic Vegas.
The real heart of any restaurant, of course, is the food. The menu sports steakhouse favorites like the 20-ounce rib-eye and 24-ounce porterhouse, featuring natural premium beef from Aspen Ridge Farms in Colorado. All the steak dishes are free of hormones and steroids.
The menu also has an ample selection of seafood dishes like Diver Scallops, Scottish Salmon, Maine Lobster, Alaskan King Crab Legs and more.
We caught a glimpse of a three-story seafood monster (pictured below) which took six weeks and three backhoes to prepare. (We may have just made up two of the three backhoes.) The “Seafood Tower” (small, $54 and large, $94) includes a dizzying selection of lobster medallions, shrimp, king crab and oysters.
Also on the menu are free range chicken, The Ultimate Steakhouse Kobe Burger, rack of lamb, as well as tempting salads, sides (like lobster mac and cheese, an organic wild mushroom blend and organic pink mashed potatoes) and mouthwatering desserts.
Take a look at the full Center Cut Steakhouse menu (.pdf format).
Center Cut Steakhouse accommodates about 175 guests, and also has a private dining room we forgot to take a photo of, which is bound to happen, especially if you try the restaurant’s signature Caramel Apple Martini, which this blog would never do while it’s working, believe us.
An existing bar and lounge area just outside the Center Cut restaurant has been renovated to fit with the swanky theme, and offers specialty martinis, classic cocktails and wines by the glass.
Signature martinis include the Pomegranate Lemon Martini, Skinny Maggie Martini, Pear…fect Martini, Cosmopolitan Martini and Cucumber Martini, many of which are made from things we have near heard of before, like the “rock candy syrup” in the Pomegranate Lemon Martini. Yes, please.
Enjoy more exclusive pics from Center Cut Steakhouse at Flamingo, and add this new steakhouse to your “List of Things to Chew in Las Vegas.” Which may not make all that much sense at first glance, but did we mention how great the Caramel Apple Martinis are?
