On and Off the Strip: Gordon Ramsay Steak and more
Gordon Ramsay Steak
After a $1.2 million remodel this fall, Gordon Ramsay’s first Las Vegas restaurant feels like a fresh new experience, one that continues to incorporate the superstar chef’s inimitable style with a brighter and lighter take.
Gordon Ramsay Steak (Paris, 702.946.4663) now benefits from a more vibrant color scheme and updated artwork that distinguishes the restaurant from the classic steakhouses on the Strip. The new chef’s table is the prime place to take your party for a one-of-a-kind culinary experience focused on large-format, shareable dishes served tableside, including a half-rack of prime rib. While signature favorites like the Scotch egg, fish and chips, roasted Beef Wellington and the finest cuts of Japanese and American beef are still ready to order, more seafood and vegetarian-friendly offerings have been added. A vegan menu proves Ramsay and team can do it all, from harissa cauliflower steak to a “crab” cake made with hearts of palm.
Off the Strip: VooDoo Steak
It’s probably best known for its stunning views of the Strip from a unique 50th-floor perch, but those who regularly revisit VooDoo Steak (Rio, 702.777.7800) do it for the signature flavors that set this refined restaurant apart. The experience begins with the Witch Doctor, a spirited cocktail of rum and fresh fruit juices served in a fishbowl over dry ice. The lobster bisque is one of the all-time favorites at VooDoo, rich, silky and satisfying. And save room for something sweet, particularly the Forbidden Apple with white chocolate yuzu and milk chocolate peanut crisp.
Trending: MyungRang Hot Dog
Everyone knows there’s a lot more than Chinese food available in the Las Vegas Chinatown District, but have you tried the latest and greatest street-food snack along this foodie favorite? MyungRang Hot Dog (4284 Spring Mountain Road No. 101, 725.214.7286) serves deep-fried dogs with a taste and texture all their own, beef franks skewered and dipped in a light rice flour batter. Start with the mozzarella-stuffed version and enhance with an assortment of condiments and dipping sauces.
