I tried the Kobe Experience at SW in the Wynn and it was great but my palette had a hard time distinguishing between the five different types of beef. Of course it was comped because I wouldn't have paid the $250 out of my pocket to try it. If a steak costs me more than $60 I start to question myself.

I keep hearing from people (most recently my barber) that the steakhouse at the Circus Circus is the best steakhouse of all time.

What do you mean by "the five different types of beef"?

From what I am told, and it is not on the menu, but you can get a riserva steak at Carnevino at the Palazzo. The riserva steak has been dry aged for roughly seven months. At most steakhouses its about 28 days.


Seven months??? Nasty! I wouldn't even eat meat out of my own freezer aged that long. On the other hand, I just googled this fascinating meat and it sounds intriguing. Priced at $100 per inch of cut steak and stinky as aged cheese. Worth reading this review.

maybe Steve Wynn should lay off spray tanning his meat

oh boy that sounded suspect. I better excuse myself.

For the money Circus is the best.

It is a beef tasting plate at SW in the Wynn. It includes 5 different high end types of beef (not all Kobe).

Wow, this could be exactly what I'm looking for here. So I can get 2 oz. each of five different types of beef (two of which are Kobe and A5) for a total of 10 oz. for $280? I just need to request the "beef tasting plate"?

How isn't it on the menu, I wonder? Even the Kobe beef that SW has isn't on its online menu. I had to call and confirm. Just seems odd that restaurants like that would leave off their best beef.



Maybe it isn't always available.

Or maybe they want to develop a buzz, only those "in the know" can get it: like In 'n Out "animal style" option.

I don't remember what they called it, but "Beef tasting plate" is how I refer to it. I am sure that had some fancy name for it. if you just mention the five different steaks on one plate they will probably know what you are talking about.
