Edge Steakhouse, Las Vegas

Succulent steaks in old Las Vegas
VERIFIED LUXURY
Edge Steakhouse in Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino wasn’t around to have played a role in the town’s Rat Pack heyday, but you would never know it from the fine service and throwback atmosphere.

Edge Steakhouse opened in July 2015 in the former Burger Bistro footprint. At 3,270 square feet, the Vegas steakhouse seats nearly 200, and features an intimate bar, an octagonal main dining room, a secondary dining room and two private rooms.

Housed within one of the private dining rooms is a portion of Edge’s extensive wine library — more than 450 selections, including Premier Grand Cru Château Margaux, Latour, Haut-Brion and Napa Valley favorites, such as Screaming Eagle, but also by-the-glass darlings such as the Prisoner Wine Company.

The full menu of modern steakhouse fare, as well as an abbreviated menu, are available in the bar and lounge area, which is warmly lit by red and clear crystal chandeliers.

Our Inspector's Highlights
• It’s easy to imagine Edge’s main dining room as a place to power-dine. Here, all eyes are on the centermost table, which is flanked by decorative columns.

• The Vegas restaurant’s guests run the gamut from CEOs and sports executives to conventioneers and moon-eyed couples.

• As this is a steakhouse, beef — specifically Snake River Farms American and Miyazaki Japanese wagyu, and Niman Ranch prime — is the obvious choice.

• Whether you choose the spotlight or the shadows, service is a mixture of formal and friendly, but never strays into casual. Management is present, but never obsequious.
Things to Know
• When the steakhouse’s doors open at 5 p.m., the place can fill up by 5:05 p.m. So make reservations (call 702-732-5277 or visit OpenTable.com) or arrive early if you prefer not to live on the edge.

• Dine on delightful steaks for dinner from Tuesday through Saturday from 5 until 10 p.m. The Las Vegas restaurant is closed on Sunday and Monday.

• The business casual dress code invites you to dress the part of dining out in Vegas. Ladies will feel most comfortable in a cocktail dress or skirt and jackets are not required for gents, but it wouldn’t look out of place here.
The Food
• First come the house-baked popovers: hollow, chewy skins that instantly melt a ramekin of whipped butter. Like a certain famed doughnut, you’ll want to catch them fresh from the oven.

• A zingy Caesar salad can be prepared tableside for parties of two or more, and the Edge Salad, with butter lettuce, avocado and grilled asparagus, comes topped in a flurry of house-made fingerling potato chips.

• While steak is the focus here, it’s not the only option. Even the humble roasted chicken — Mary’s Chicken, for those who know, in dark demi glace — is served in Le Creuset bakeware with roasted garlic mashed potatoes, asparagus and mushrooms in pan jus.
The Bar
• In the wood-paneled bar and lounge there is a communal table for eight, two bistro-height tables and six seats at the bar.

• Go all in on a bottle or pair by-the-glass wines with each course. If cocktails are the object, inquire what’s aging in the diminutive barrel.

• Behind the bottles, a large silver-framed flat-screen TV is tuned to the main event of the moment, and behind that sits a tiled mosaic that breaks up the dark wood.

• Elsewhere Klimt, Renoir, Van Gogh and other masters’ prints dot the walls.
