Why should you detour to the far north end of the Strip just for dinner? We can’t think of a better reason right now than this innovative steakhouse from award-winning chef José Andrés. In a dramatic space designed by Philippe Starck, the dining room looks like an Argentinean ranch or a hunting lodge on steroids, with leather seats, antler chandeliers, and an alligator’s head sticking out of the wall.
Start by choosing a bottle from the world-beating wine list or a crazily creative cocktail from the bar, then pique your appetite with cotton candy foie gras, a caviar flight, or a giant chicharrón. Steaks are in the spotlight, but so is seafood and the suckling pig, roasted in a wood-fire oven and served either as a whole or quartered. The dishes are imaginative and daring in their combinations of flavors, like the sea urchin served with Spanish blood sausage. Go big or go home, guys!
Making reservations is strongly advised, because this place is incredibly popular with a well-heeled crowd of young trendsters.
Dress code: None. Stylish casual attire.
