N9NE at The Palms is a chic, trendy steakhouse. The restaurant is adorned with exquisite fabrics, delicate draperies and soft lighting in a bustling, high-energy environment. Known to be frequented by A-list celebrities, the restaurant is a good place to kick off the party before a night out.
Guests celebrating special occasions can retreat to the Center Table, a beautiful space, enclosed by a sheer canopy of drapes and accented by an ornate custom-made chandelier. N9NE also sports a lounge with elevated high-top seating.
For appetizers, the crispy avocado fries are delicious--tender and creamy slices of avocado are lightly breaded and crispy on the outside. Other appetizers include the crab stuffed mushrooms, crispy calamari, jumbo shrimp cocktail and lobster pot stickers.
Main courses include entrees like the braised Kobe beef short rib with horseradish crust and curried root vegetables or the 48-ounce prime ribeye Tomahawk steak for two, grilled and pepper crusted with roasted bone marrow, seasonal vegetables, baby Dutch potatoes and a red wine sauce. Seafood lovers can enjoy the 3-pound succulent lobster thermidor, boasting whole Maine lobster meat sautéed then placed back in the shell where it is topped with gruyere cheese sauce and toasted garlic bread crumbs and finished with shallots, white wine and fresh herbs.
Other menu classics include "Barry's Steak," a 10-ounce grilled prime rib cap served with roasted cipollini onions, shishito peppers and red wine sauce.
N9NE offers a variety of dessert and beverage selections to accompany your meal including hand-crafted barrel-aged cocktails. Signature cocktails include whiskey based libations like the Rock & Rye made with Hochstetler's Slow & Low, served over an ice sphere in a sherry rinsed whiskey glass, or the Fig Infused Manhattan, a flavorful adaptation of the classic made with Wild Turkey rye, Cinzano vermouth, black walnut bitters and fresh figs.
The dessert menu includes whimsical treats like the Some More S'mores, a fun twist on Chef Barry's famous s'mores featuring homemade strawberry, orange Grand Marnier and amaretto hazelnut flavored marshmallows with white and dark chocolate ganache-covered graham crackers served hibachi style over an open flame.
