Less intimidating than the Strip’s more buttoned-down steakhouses, Brand is a popular pick for bachelor/ette parties. Open seating overlooking the casino floor at the Monte Carlo makes it feel more like an ultra lounge than a dining destination, but the 40-ounce “Ultimate Porterhouse Steak” for two people with dipping sauces is appetizing, as are side dishes like the loaded baked potato and the macaroni ‘n’ cheese with smoked gouda. You could also just stop by the bar for a quick “French Darling” cocktail with citron vodka and framboise and maybe a plate of crispy rock shrimp or lollipop chicken wings before heading back to the gaming tables.
Dress code: None. Stylish casual attire.
