Just a few blocks north of Wynn Las Vegas sits a local favorite and unexpected treasure. Housed inside the boutique Royal Resort hotel sits the sleek and retro Barrymore, a contemporary steakhouse serving up classic American cuisine, cocktails and plenty of rich Vegas vibes.
Created by Block 16 Hospitality masterminds Anthony Meidenbauer and Billy Richardson—the duo behind Holsteins, Flour & Barley, Public House and more—the Barrymore offers approachable and unpretentious dining with an upscale edge. With its tufted, blue-velvet couches and bronze film reels on the ceiling, the Barrymore transports visitors to the city’s golden era—with a little Hollywood glam—and the menu matches the funky-chic ambiance.
Ease into the decadence of classic Vegas with the pan-seared foie gras, served with strawberry-rhubarb compote and a crispy, buttery square of pain perdu, or roasted bone marrow with pickled vegetables, shallot jam and grilled bread. Pair these starter dishes with specialty cocktails like the Final Act (gin, Luxardo maraschino, yellow chartreuse and lime juice) or something more traditional like a negroni or sazerac.
When it comes to steak, the Barrymore doesn’t disappoint. Go for the 8-ounce, 21-day, wet-aged filet mignon, or the 18-ounce 28-day dry-aged bone-in-ribeye, seasoned to perfection. Add a South African lobster tail to make a meal fit for royalty.
The Barrymore has fast become a new classic, and it’s easy to see and feel why. The Barrymore at Royal Resort, 702-407-5303; Sunday-Thursday 5-10 p.m.; Friday & Saturday, 5-11 p.m.
