Charlie Palmer Steak "Cut of the Week"

Last summer we posted about the "Sunday Supper" put together by Steve Blandino at Charlie Palmer Steak (Four Seasons/Mandalay Bay), and the combination of both good food and a favorable price point that it brought. While the Las Vegas economy now has the restaurant dark on Sunday's, there is a new concept in play during the week, and after trying it for the first time last week it is worth a mention. Each week they choose one particular cut of meat and turn in into a multiple-course menu, with a "bottomless" wine pairing for the first two courses. At $48 it is an extremely good value, especially since these are full dinner portions - if you price out the food separately, it is close to being unlimited wine, gratis. Last week we got to try a 12 once prosciutto-wrapped pork tenderloin, served with marinated grilled apricots, which was a terrific salty-fatty-sweet combination that was well thought out. This week's menu just hit the e-mail box -

    That sounds pretty darn good, and I agree, with the wine its a great deal! I wonder if I could convince DH to take me there Saturday night (does the special apply on weekends?) before I get on a plane for a red-eye to Florida. Maybe the wine would help me sleep!

      The special does apply on Saturday nights, and you can also use the excuse that you are just a few minutes from the airport as extra ammunition. How could any DH turn that down?

          Was in Vegas last week and tried the 'Cut of the Week" at Charlie Palmer Steak. I highly recommed this to everyone. The food was delicious, the atmosphere exceptional and the staff friendly and accomodating. The portions are very generous, last weeks main course was a 8 oz filet and giant prawn. Also the addition of the bottomless wine pairing with the 1st and 2nd course is a nice touch. One of the best values on the strip....don't miss it!

          I know this may be a silly question but does Charlie Palmer use Prime Beef? Even if this is USDA Choice, it is an astounding deal. One that may make me cancel our Raku reservation this Friday night.

            Does anyone know what the catch is? This deal seems almost too good to be true.

              No catch. We were there the week before Christmas. The Bibb lettuce salad with buttermilk dressing, 10 oz. NY strip with 1/2 lobster, apple napoleon for dessert. The wine flowed.....

          Does anyone know when they post what the 'cut of the week' will be? I am going the weekend of the 1/4 & this sounds like it is definately worth a visit.

            Don't miss it. But also ratchet down the expectations too! Just type in "Charlie Palmer cut of the week Las Vegas" into your google search and it will come up. The food was great when we went and the wine was good. Is is 1982 Latour? No. It's generally $15-$35 per bottle retail wines. Is it a 21-day prime 24 oz. NY Strip? No, but it is very good. All for $60 (yes it's $48 but throw in tax and tip and you get $60). And drink as much as you want...but remember the lesser quality wine hangovers are generally worse. Trust me.
