Which Vegas steaks are dry aged?
I'm planning a bachelor party dinner for 6-8 in Vegas, and I'm trying to decide between the various top steakhouses -- Prime, Delmonico, Charlie Palmer, SW, Craftsteak, N9NE....
1) Does anyone know how these various steakhouses age their steak?
2) Am I right that the places listed above all charge about the same ammount -- $40-50 for a steak a la carte?
Here's what I know:
Prime - all wet aged
Delmonico - all dry aged
CP - all dry aged
SW - all wet aged
Craftsteak - NY, ribeye, porterhouse are dry aged with all other cuts wet aged
N9NE - wet aged
The catch is that all filet mignon, whether the other cuts are wet or dry aged, are all wet aged due to the delicate nature of the beef. The same goes for kobe beef - always wet aged.
Yes, all of those places listed will be in the same general price range.
Gallagher's Steakhouse serves dry aged beef.
Hours: Sun - Thurs 4pm - 11pm
Fri - Sat 4pm - 12am
Avg Check: $70-$80 per person
Well, I chose Delmonico, in part because the wine list was so widely praised. There seems to be a wide range of opinion about it on this board; I'm very interested to see how it stacks up.
This should have an asterisk next to it. It's consistently rated the best steakhouse by the RJ poll. The same poll that lists the best Mexican as Taco Bell and the best Italian as the Olive Garden.
I'll admit that I've never eaten there but I have heard that it's good. But, to say that it's the tops in Vegas has to be a gross over exaggeration. However, everyone is cetainly entitled to their opinion.
