Carversteak’s 42-ounce wagyu tomahawk rib chop is a showstopper.
For a good time and a good steak, here are two of Las Vegas' most outstanding newcomers.
If there’s one food image that is trending lately on social media, it’s the decadent lobster en croute—a tantalizing whole Maine lobster swaddled in a puff pastry shell with a red pepper cognac cream—found at the city’s newest steakhouse, Carversteak. As the only steak-focused restaurant in Resorts World, the plush venue comes alive with cocktail carts that make gin and vodka martinis tableside. Enjoy flavorful American artisan cuts or tender Japanese wagyu with your choice of one of five knives before wandering to the expansive outdoor patio to soak in views of the Strip.

BARRY’S DOWNTOWN PRIME
The moody, glamorous dining room at this basement chophouse sets the tone for a decadent meal in Downtown’s newest casino. The sexy setting beckons guests to order Manhattan and Old-Fashioned cocktails presented tableside before they dive into the legendary 12-ounce rib cap—a signature favorite from chef Barry Dakake’s time at N9NE Steakhouse. Plant-based guests rave over the vegan menu, and the vegetable meatloaf has quickly gained its own cult status. End the evening by snapping photos of the brandy-induced flames of a classic baked Alaska or share a decadent slice of London rose chocolate cake topped with 24K rose gold leaf.
