It's always a bonus when a Vegas steakhouse isn't in a hotel lobby or part of a chain. Nectaly Mendoza and the team at Herbs & Rye—the standard for craft cocktails in town—expanded their Vegas imprint with Cleaver, which has enough charm, comfort, and character to attract both locals and trade show attendees from the nearby convention center. There's even a few oddball quirks like portraits of comic legends like Chirs Farley and Bill Murray dressed in vintage military garb. The steaks are similar to what you'd find at Herbs & Rye, but butchered in-house and cooked with an especially perfect char. Bone-in cuts, including the Brooklyn filet, Tomahawk ribeye, and Kansas City strip are highlights. The restaurant is deceptively large, with numerous dining rooms around different corners. The happy hour is awesome (half-off select steaks) and extended during the pandemic all night long from 5 pm to midnight.
