Acclaimed chef Tom Colicchio’s handsome restaurant (the only other one’s in Las Vegas) is one of our favorites when we're feeling carnivorous. it's not for the faint of wallet, of course, but if you're up to the challenge, there’s a lot to love—corn-fed beef steaks, including a dry-aged bone-in New York strip and rib-eye, and a monumental 32-ounce porterhouse listed as “For the Table” ($130); a couple of Wagyus (rib-eye and skirt) and a grass-fed New York strip. (Each is listed with the ranch where the animal was bred.) What really makes the meal is the great accompaniments (à la carte), that bring out the best in all that delectable meat: exotic mushrooms (three different kinds or a mix), Yukon Gold purée, carrots and rosemary, Texas onion rings and spinach-and-Emmental gratin—to name a few.
