Brooklyn icon Peter Luger Steak House has been open since 1887, and the family-owned steakhouse just opened its fourth global location at Caesars Palace, complete with a custom dry-aging facility for their meat. The menu, which has set the standard for American steak houses, is famously sparse. Regulars often order without ever looking at a menu. The star of the show is the world-famous Peter Luger Steak for Two, a giant porterhouse that has been dry-aged in-house and cooked in a broiler to order. The steak is finished with butter on its serving platter and goes out sizzling. At lunch, fans line up for the half-pound burger topped with extra-thick cut bacon. 3570 S Las Vegas Boulevard, caesars.com/caesars-palace/restaurants/ peter-luger-steak-house

Some chefs romanticize food, waxing poetically about seasonality and flavor. Others, like NYC’s cheeky cuisiner Eyal Shani, fetishize ingredients. At his recently opened Vegas outpost of the Hell’s Kitchen favorite HaSalon, chef Shani describes veggies as “mysterious creatures” that “seduce” him. At the bustaurant, diners can expect dinner and a show, where cleverly titled dishes like “7 ricotta clouds, not even one more” and “skirt steak bathing in tomato ovaries and spicy” are served amid strobing house lights and fire displays. DJs spin high-energy beats long into the wee hours of the morning, and guests are encouraged to dance on tables.
