I love steak and have made it my mission to visit every fine
steakhouse in Vegas – on and off the strip. Not just every steak dinner
but every meal I have, is measured up to Delmonico Steakhouse.
The first time I stepped into Delmonico Steakhouse was for a bachelor
party of 12. Now, it’s nearly impossible to wow 12 people at once but
Delmonico did just that. Not every return trip has been that amazing,
but all have been above average. Most restaurants will never match the
service and quality of food we received. Every steak was prepared
perfectly as each of us asked. That’s no small task. Caesar salads were
prepared table side and nobody at the table ever had to look for the
wine bottle because every two people had a server watching over their
Delmonico Steakhouse at Venetian is an Emeril Lagasse restaurant and is not related to the steakhouse by the same name in New York City.
While Delmonico Steakhouse prides itself on delivering New
Orleans-style cuisine with the signature bold flavors that only Chef
Lagasse can offer, I focus on the steak at a steakhouse. While I’ve
sampled the famous, and delicious, gumbo and friends tried some of the
seafood appetizers (Barbecue Shrimp is the favorite) my mouth always
comes back to how good the steak here is. I prefer a New York Strip
because it’s mild in flavor, but the Filet Mignon is also an excellent
choice if you want a smaller cut of beef.
While it seems every restaurant now opens with a celebrity chef
Emeril was one of the first celebrity chefs and Delmonico steakhouse
shows why he’s famous. The food, wine and service are all top notch. The
man’s reputation precedes him and it is well deserved.
You can find Delmonico Steakhouse along with most of the other fine dining at The Venetian near the Blue Man Group Theater.
