LAS VEGAS (June 19, 2020) – With the recent reopening of Flamingo Las Vegas, the highly-anticipated Bugsy & Meyer’s Steakhouse will accept first reservations on Thursday, July 2, 2020. Guests are transported back to the resort’s reimagined vintage roots when reserving a table inside the modern, one-of-a-kind, $10 million destination steakhouse. Restaurant reservations can be placed now by visiting the restaurant page on FlamingoVegas.com.
The restaurant’s name is a nod to Benjamin “Bugsy” Siegel and business partner Meyer Lansky, who famously opened the Flamingo Las Vegas back in 1946 to bring Hollywood glam to the desert. With the Flamingo, they created the first resort-style hotel on the Strip and forever changed Las Vegas.
From menu, design, and atmosphere, Bugsy & Meyer’s Steakhouse takes notes from the past and adds fresh and elevated twists. It features a bakery façade, dry aged meat cooler, centerpiece bar and lounge, raw bar, three private dining rooms, ornate dining room, a hidden speakeasy-- The Count Room, and more. Once inside the space, the showstopping design from Studio K Creative out of Chicago and renowned designer Jonathan Adler, will have guests in wonderment at the extraordinary amount of detail throughout. Bugsy & Meyer’s partnered with SHE HIT PAUSE art consultants out of New York City to create a specialty curated art collection, which includes a custom beaded flamingo piece created by Adler that took nearly 100 hours to make.
Joining the stunning steakhouse is the winner of the Food Network competition series, “Vegas Chef Prizefight,” Lamar Moore. Moore hails from Chicago, Illinois, and notably competed in the toughest job interview of his life, trying to impress a panel of judges, like Anne Burrell and Scott Conant, for the title of Head Chef at Bugsy & Meyer’s. Moore joins Executive Chef, Honorio Mecinas, who brings with him more than 15 years of Las Vegas Strip experience.
While Moore looks forward to incorporating his Southern flair and possibly even featuring his finale-winning fried chicken, the Bugsy & Meyer’s menu features steakhouse classics and throwbacks, a raw bar and more. Bugsy & Meyer’s in-house 60-day dry aged program is showcased in the restaurant in a glass encased show cooler. Hand selected cuts include domestic prime, wet aged, dry aged prime, imported wagyu and more.
Entrée enhancements include a single lobster tail, Alaskan king crab, foie gras, B&M scampi, Point Reyes cheese fondue and more. Traditional sides are included on the menu, but guests won’t want to miss signature sides like The Heater…Baked & Stuffed with white cheddar, The House sausage, and caramelized onion; truffle potato puree; and lobster mac & cheese. Seafood is a cornerstone of the menu, especially with the raw bar kitchen in the main dining room. Enjoy premium shellfish towers with charcoal grilled enhancements. Other dish highlights include prime rib roasts, American wagyu short ribs, pan roasted lamb loin, fresh Dover sole meuniere and more. Dessert is no slouch with staples like The Big Apple, made with a white chocolate yuzu mousse, caramelized apples, soft caramel, and hazelnut café crumble.
The cocktail menu pays homage to the past while presenting new takes on the classics and originals. Hailing from the Caribbean and a favorite spirit of the 1940s, rum cocktails are heavily featured. Other creations include prohibition-era libations and unique contemporary cocktails. Bugsy & Meyer’s also offers a vast wine list with selections by the glass and bottle.
