There are precious few secrets on the Las Vegas Strip. Everything is so big and in-your-face, it’s kind of impossible to keep things quiet. But we’ll let you in on one of tastiest secrets the Strip has to offer, as long as you promise to keep it to yourself.
Morels French Steakhouse & Bistro is a bit of a hidden gem all by itself, a regal and relaxing place for steamed mussels, steak frites, oysters, cheese, Champagne and so many other wonderful things. (There’s a Morels at the Grove in LA, too.) But the least-known wonderful thing about the Vegas location is a new, secret, prix-fixe steak menu available only at Morels’ handsome bar.
Executive chef J.L. Carrera selects a different cut and side dishes each week to go along with a baby iceberg salad and macaron ice cream sandwiches for dessert. A recent week offered a 28-day dry-aged, grass-fed New York sirloin served with whipped potatoes and Brussels sprouts. The three-course feast costs $58, a steal of a deal even before you discover another secret perk—unlimited glasses of Vanishing Point Pinot Noir. Morels French Steakhouse & Bistro at Palazzo, 702-607-6333; Monday-Thursday 8 a.m.-11 p.m., Friday-Saturday 8 a.m.-midnight, Sunday 8 a.m.-10 p.m.
