While there is an ever going debate about the best steakhouse in town, the Venetian has thrown there contender into the mix with Delmonico Steakhouse. Chef Emeril Lagasse has pulled out all the stops on this one and Delmonico is becoming a household name in Las Vegas among the many options that diners have when it comes to steakhouses these days. Critics are raving about the succulent steaks, which until now was not Emeril’s specialty. Known mostly for his popular chain of restaurants serving southern and Creole specialties with a few grilled entrees thrown in, he really got it right with the opening of Delmonico. Soft earth tones and white table linens set a casual mood while serving much more than just casual food. Delmonico also offers an extensive wine lists with selection that can reach as high as $3k per bottle. For those who would rather put the money toward a down payment on their house, wine is sold by the glass as well.
Appetizers like the lobster bisque use southern spices for a spicy kick. Also start with homemade mozzarella bruschetta, classic steak tartare, or the Delmonico antipasto. You will also find the signature New Orleans influence in the pork with cooked greens and creole mustard reduction as well as in the andouille potato hash. The bone-in filet, bone-in rib eye, and the NY strip are the favorite steak options. All are juicy, tender, and mouth watering. Seafood options include barbequed salmon, Creole boiled Gulf shrimp cocktail, Ahi Tuna, and pan seared sea scallops with fennel. Home style sides like the twice baked potato, creamed spinach, and mashed potatoes will satisfy any hunger you might have left after enjoying a delicious slab of meat. For a lighter dish, try the sliced tomato salad, Delmonico baby greens and fried homemade mozzarella, or the hearts of romaine and creamy blue cheese dressing. Also, don’t forget to try the Key Lim pie for dessert.
