[Worth the Strip]

Pop into the new BLT Steak for cheesy bliss

BLT Steak’s signature popovers are worth a visit all by themselves.

Rarely does a much-hyped bite from a fancy new restaurant make good on its publicity-fueled promises. But these popovers? Heavenly. If Bally’s Steakhouse was gutted and remodeled as BLT Steak solely so we could devour these big, fluffy cheese pillows, it would have been worth it.

Still brand new, BLT Steak is a huge, hearty chophouse worthy of consideration for your next Strip splurge; it’s also headquarters for the long-running Sterling Brunch. Whenever you visit, your dinner will begin with a basket of these hollow, Gruyère-laden beauties. Every imaginable texture is represented, from its crisp exterior to its slightly chewy, almost custard-y insides. Add a bit of butter and sea salt for extra pleasure. You’re used to skipping bread to save room for all that steak and all those sides. Good luck ignoring the perfect popover.

BLT Steak Bally’s, 381-2728. Sunday-Thursday, 5:30-10:30 p.m.; Friday & Saturday, 5:30-11 p.m.
