Napa Valley is hundreds of miles away, but no need to travel that far to enjoy its bounty. Oakville Steakhouse, part of the Tropicana’s (troplv.com) recent updates, bills itself as Napa Valley–inspired, and delivers with premium steaks, seafood and a wine list that’ll have you dreaming of vineyards and the California sunshine. Situated on the second floor, away from the bustle of the casino, Oakville is an elegant setting for an evening out, with live music on Fridays and Saturdays. Steaks and chops are the standouts here, with dry-aged and prime selections such Texas Wagyu, rib eye and porterhouse, among others. Sides include asparagus, spinach and sauteed mushrooms, and the generous portions are meant to be shared. For non-carnivores, the seafood selection is just as extensive, with scallops, salmon, sea bass, octopus and more on the menu.
