The Edge Steakhouse is a high-end steakhouse, and from service to meals, it is all beautifully executed, in fact, I personally can say it is better than Ruth Chris’s or Morton’s IMO! Perhaps if you have been there you are thinking the same thing, so you are welcome because I just expressed your thoughts, lol!
Where is Edge Steakhouse?
Where is the Edge Steakhouse? Right inside the Westgate Resort. Once you are dropped off, take a few steps inside the main foyer, and to the right of the Casino, walk down the steps. You are about to experience a very refined, casually elegant restaurant called ‘the Edge Steakhouse’.
The Executive Chef – Steve Young
We were rushing from our Matt Goss Show to the Westgate Resort (it was a little late). As we briskly walked to the steakhouse I was greeted by Executive Chef Steve Young. Wait!!!!!!! At the door, waiting for me, was the Executive Chef? He already won me over, business first and incredibly genuine, unlike most Chefs I have interacted with (and I have met a lot of Chefs in my world!)
Fantastic, fabulous, hands-on, charismatic, he’s the whole package and so much more – that’s what Executive Steve Young is made of! So for all of you who were fans of Iron Chef, visit the Edge Steakhouse and learn what Fantabulous really is. Trust me when I say Executive Chef Steve Young is the ‘next big thing’ I believe he already is. For those more discerning diners, if you are after perfectly articulated and translated meals, he’s your guy and the Edge Steakhouse is the winning bet!
Executive Steve Young offers indescribable and unsurpassable culinary talent, with a charisma and passion that translates into everything he creates! The Culinary King of Vegas offerings signature American Steakhouse gastronomy experiences that are meticulously plated~ Dana Vento
What You Need To Know
Chef Steve created everything on the menu, he is hands-on in the kitchen and works WITH his staff. IN addition to creating a most impressive menu offering he actually ages his cuts of prime meats right in the restaurant, you can see it from the exterior through glass windows. This is something he added to the restaurant on his own.
5-course Chef Tasting Dinner
Want to have some ‘off the menu’ fun and enjoy the ‘best of the best’ without having to do the thinking? Let the 5 Course Chef Tasting arrive at your table. I need to be honest, I threw Chef a curveball when I spoke with him in person and told him about my dietary restraints.
However, my curveball did not even challenge his level of skill as he rolled with it and completely astounded my palate. While I am not divulging what my restraints are, it is safe to say, I ate like a Queen!
Wagyu Beef Tartare \ Kaluga caviar, truffle aioli.
Each painstakingly selected ingredient contributes to the greatness of the dish.
Spicy Shrimp \ Sweet Chili Sauce
Have you ever tried Bang Bang Shrimp? The Spicy Shrimp just insults that so badly, it’s just best to say, this offering is preferred by connoisseurs of spiced shrimp without a doubt. Just open up, eat, and repeat.
Beef Fat Toast ~ YOLO
Round circles of what looks to be ‘melba-like’ are offered and I can just suggest that you be the first to the dish. If you are a toast person, these are your dream come true.
These tasty morsels will disappear. Oh, my magnificent and I am not a meat girl! Yes, I accepted the carbs and welcomed them into my mouth beef fat and all! YOLO!
Artisan Style Yorkshire
I am a detail girl, and I loved the squared off butter, but the single serving Yorkshire was where it was at.
Pan drippings of beef fat create the taste that is brilliantly served in single portions sizes. Muffin pan baked?
Butter Baked Oysters
Oysters are offered in nduja butter and topped off with lemon and herb breadcrumbs. I can offer this, ” it is bound to please the most demanding of taste buds!”
Baby Beets Salad
What could be more delicious than, pistachios, burrata, and lemon vinaigrette? The masterfully executed Baby Beets Salad will have you salivating, and scraping the dish for more.
A Saporific Take on Cauliflower Soup
Made fresh, poured fresh and beautifully present, cauliflower soup is fit for the gods.
Pork belly, celery, and green apple.
Modestly portioned, market fresh, Hokkaido Scallops, robed in butternut squash, pine nuts, pomegranate and Brussel sprouts.
The dish will tease and tantalize you, and leave you vying for more!
40 Day Dry Aged Rib Eye & Wagyu Strip Loin ~ An Epicurean Feast
A staple of any great steakhouse is measured by the intensity of both the flavor and quality of the beef you are about to cut into.
Allow me to quantify this by stating the quality of beef: melt-in-your-mouth, farm-fresh flavor, artisan and authentic and signature style.
Butter Whipped Potatoes
Shall I put it this way, and by all means complimentary, “would you like some potatoes with that butter?” Mashed, made fresh and no doubt calorie-free, satisfying and comfort-driven. After all your beef needs a resting bed in your belly, lol. (ok trying to keep luxurious light and airy).
Roasted Mushrooms with Boursin Cheese
The aged sherry vinegar is the key to the taste, but there’s so much more to savor. This dish is bursting with intense flavors and alluring aromas yet simple and unexpected.
In fact, something my family has served in their kitchen and on the table for years. Perhaps that is the eloquence and genuineness of the dish? For most this will be a fresh twist on a mushroom dish.
Brussel Sprouts & Cauliflower & Quinoa
Just to round this beautifully executed meal off, here are a few more options.
Direct your attention to the Quinoa and roasted vegetable salad, offerings hearts of palm, radish, asparagus and topped with watercress. Elegant, luscious and mouthwatering and oh so on trend!
Vanilla Bean Cream Brulee
Where the shortbread cookie stole the show. A presentation shows off the Vanilla Bean Cream Brulee in a very bright way. The taste is just plain good, but the shortbread cookie gets a head nod from me. Simple, uncomplicated bliss, a plateful, please?
Death By Chocolate Cake
Let me just say this, “its decadence and rich flavor will just make you swoon!” I won’t ruin it for you, just know it is layer by layer of chocolate in different dimensions.
By day, jeans and a tee are great, and sometimes you will see a whole lot less or a whole lot more. Daytime is casual and fun. However, nighttime, and depending on which hotels and resorts you visit have a different and sometimes ‘unspoken’ dress code. Nighttime in Vegas is all about styling.
From shoes to dresses, live it up. Sparkle, bling, heels, dresses (or very little black dresses, lol) all trend. It’s Vegas Baby.
You will find a ‘spot-on’ staff, who attentively serve you even without your ask. Alex is a pro at pampering~
From fresh silverware between courses (you all know I am crazy about service) to fine table linens.
Innovative side dishes, accompany creative entrees and of course vegetarian dining, as well as the famed red meat offerings, truly make the Edge Steakhouse signature.
Lavishly Living Gastronomy Out Loud In Vegas
While my meal was hosted by the Edge Steakhouse in Las Vegas, content and images are all my own. Of course, you get it now, this is the restaurant that you have to visit if you really want the Good Eats Vegas is known for.
Now an exposed gem, make sure to get a reservation and indulge in the sophistication of this fine-dining experience. ~ Cheers DANA!
