Maybe I missed it, but I didn't see mention of Hugo's Cellar at Four Queens.



I've been there and loved that place!

It was delicious!



Is the A5 significantly better than Prime?

Okay, folks, I am going to be in Vegas next month and I am looking for the absolute best steak in the city. I have had USDA Prime beef at many different restaurants in several different cities. I had Wagyu at Craftsteak at the MGM back in December. It wasn't the A5, though. So here is my question: Does the A5 live up to the hype and price? And if so, which restaurants serve it and which do you recommend? I know Strip Steak at MB is one. Are there any others?

Does anyone know if the Wynn serves Kobe beef? I have heard it does, but it's not listed on the restaurant's menu.

Did you check the SW menu? I'd be surprised if it didn't, although I personally think Kobe beef is overrated.

I posted a link to the menu below. It's not on there. It does mention it on the home page, but it doesn't have a price or anything.

And where did you have Kobe? And do you have any steak / restaurant suggestions? I am looking for the absolute best steak in LV and am willing to pay for it.

So I have narrowed it down to choices: Kobe at SW or A5 at Strip Steak. Anyone have an opinion on which I should try?

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.

When there was a Craftsteak in CT at Foxwoods, I had a ~45 day dry aged NY Strip there. By far the best steak I've ever had. I'd love to try one aged for 7 months!

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.

As of now, it looks like I am going to try SW's Kobe over SS's A5. If anyone has any reason why I should make a different decision, please fill free to inform me. I want the absolute best steak in LV. Price is not an issue.
