Located in the birthplace of modern-day Vegas, Center Cut celebrates The Flamingo's 66yr existence in three ways: a vintagely classy B&W decor w/ enormous leather booths, plasmas screening photo montages from the '40s, and a vast menu of 100% American steaks that, just like professional athletes around the time of the Flamingo's birth, are steroid- & hormone-free.
Sourced primarily from CO's Aspen Farms, cow options range from 20oz bone-in rib eyes, to fresh herb & horseradish-crusted prime ribs, but the king of the grill's undoubtedly the marrow bone-sporting 28oz Tomahawk On the Stone, also about how much weight you'll gain, if you know your pre-metrication units of measurement. The starters are enticing enough to ensure you immediately regret ordering almost two pounds of meat (blue cheese-cured bacon satay, an artful tower of marinated tuna tartare w/ dragonfruit...), while Kurobuta pork chops and king crab legs might keep you from doing so at all... but they won't, so side all that steak with some lobster mac & cheese and ranch-flavored frites.
Should you stray from the suggested wine pairings or classic martinis, there's also a small list of signature cocktails that includes a TY KU-aided margarita, and the suggestively named, X-Rated Fusion liqueur Pink In The Center, which we all are, not that mid-century professional athletes were ready to admit that.
