    Eggs Benediction

    By Al Mancini

    But few breakfast dishes have left themselves as open to artistic interpretation as eggs Benedict. And the chefs of the Strip are putting some of the wildest spins on the staple that you could imagine.

    Surf & Turf, Sundaes for Days and Chicago Burgers ’n’ Beers

    By Grace Bascos

    High temperatures don’t mean we have to be relegated to eating light. There are a few heavier dishes that, even in this heat, are in my dining rotation. On the surf and turf tip, STK has you covered.

    Five Tables to Dine For

    By Al Mancini

    For mere mortals, just scoring a reservation at a hot or venerable restaurant can feel like an accomplishment. But for celebrities and other VIP diners, the real demonstration of importance is securing the right table.

    Loaves to Love

    By Al Mancini

    Las Vegas has some of the finest bread services I’ve ever experienced, many of which are as memorable as the restaurant’s entrées.

    By Grace Bascos

    The Grand Cafes at Station Casinos (SCLV.com) around the Valley have just made deciding what to eat in three courses even easier.

    Best Breastaurant

    The concept of scantily clad, top-heavy female servers is hardly innovative (see Hooters … and pretty much every casino floor in town). But when the recession bludgeoned the restaurant industry, several establishments decided the best way to lift the bottom line was to lower the neckline—hence the increasing number of successful “breastaurants” such as the Tilted Kilt and Twin Peaks.

    Dessert Ménage à trois, STK

    By Grace Bascos

    The cocktails at STK aren’t meant to be merely sipped, thanks to this trio of summery desserts. The dish consists of a Jager Bomb, made of silky Red Bull gelée topped with a light and fluffy Jager mousse; Tequila Sunrise, orange cake coated with tequila crème; and a Cosmopolitan, vodka cake paired with raspberry-infused Grand Marnier mousse.

    Sinners & Saints Dessert Menu, STK

    By Grace Bascos

    As if a meal here isn’t decadent enough, Halloween’s desserts ask how good or bad you want to be. For the sinners, the Devil’s Pitchfork is a decadent chocolate cupcake filled with Godiva liqueur ganache while the saints enjoy Angel’s food cake flowing with sweet liqueur. And because it’s Vegas, they’ve tossed in a pair of edible fruit-leather panties for good measure. $12, Oct. 31 only, in the Cosmopolitan, 877-893-2003.

    Lil’ BGRs, STK

    By Grace Bascos

    We’re all familiar with a certain sandwich jingle that begins, “Two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese …” but STK takes that big sandwich and makes it the Lil’ BGR, a four-pack of sliders packed with big flavor. The beef patties in this case are Wagyu beef, and the special sauce is carefully seasoned for a little kick, while tart Japanese pickles cut through the richness. And it all fits nicely on a toasted, sesame-seed bun. Want to go even more over the top? Add truffles or foie gras. You won’t find this burger under those golden arches.

    Best New Restaurant With a Scene

    STK didn’t need to bank on the Cosmopolitan’s ultra-hip image; the restaurant brought in its own cool reputation from its acclaimed outposts in Los Angeles, Miami and New York. No, this is “Not Your Daddy’s Steakhouse,” as the motto declares. Mostly that’s because STK targets women, luring them in with a versatile menu and a non-stuffy, upbeat atmosphere that features live DJs and female-friendly events such as Magnum Mondays (buy a bottle of Veuve and get a free upgrade to a magnum).

    Bread Basket, STK

    By Grace Bascos

    Some say it’s a sin to fill up on bread before a meal, but this starter at STK is worth paying that penance later. The soft, doughy bread arrives warm to the table, ready to be pulled apart. Soft blue-cheese butter is slathered all over the top, making for a rich and funky spread that is punched up when you dip a piece into the accompanying chive oil. The combination of the flavors infused through both oil and butter is explosive and decadent. Complimentary, in the Cosmopolitan, 698-7990.

    Jonathan Segal

    By Sean DeFrank

    Jonathan Segal can rattle off a list of what is absolutely sacred in America, and one of those things, he says, is the steak house. As all-American as cattle and apple pie, the steak house enables us to eat what we really like—big, juicy cuts of meat. Considering that Segal is a transplant from the U.K., his insight into the American appetite is stunning. His first foray into steak came in 2005 with the opening of STK in New York.
