Food is fuel, and there’s nothing more enjoyable than an expertly prepared steak. Some of the best steakhouses in Las Vegas are just steps away from the casino floor. Grab a seat at Morels Steakhouse & Bistro’s bar and ask the bartender for their special dinner menu. This three-course meal features a different steak selection and choice of side every week, along with a side salad, a macaron ice cream sandwich, and unlimited glasses of Vanishing Point Pinot Noir. Emeril Lagasse’s Delmonico Steakhouse has been serving up Creole cuisine for close to twenty years and is a favorite on the Strip, but what many don’t know is they have an extensive whiskey menu with over 700 choices from eight different countries.Reserve A Table
