The Flame Steakhouse Review:
The Flame Steakhouse has ambient lighting and is a refreshing calm spot in the busy El Cortez Hotel. White linen tablecloths give the restaurant an old-school vibe but modern touches like mod-retro lights and red booths give the interior an updated touch. Two muted flat screen TVs play scenes from Italy. The overall feeling evoked is a tranquil oasis away from the hustle of the casino floor.
Appetizers include items like panko crusted fried shrimp, BBQ baby back ribs, and shrimp cocktail.
In addition to traditional Caesar salads and French onion soup, a unique "Chicago Style" garbage salad is offered. Garbage salad has chopped iceberg lettuce, tomato, artichoke hearts, Kalamata olives, marinated mushrooms, Genoa salami, cucumber, sweet onions, garbanzo beans and cheddar cheese in a lemon vinaigrette dressing.
The Insalata Caprese is a generous portion of buffalo mozzarella, beefsteak tomatoes and basil drizzled with olive oil and aged balsamic vinegar.
For entrées, The Flame Steakhouse offers a simple and to-the-point menu that includes New York steak, a 20-ounce porterhouse, filet mignon, beautifully prepared lamb chops with mint infused jus and rosemary. How could you go wrong?
Seafood entrées include Alaskan king crab, Atlantic salmon, and shrimp scampi. A seasonal fish, sea bass, is cooked the way you like it and topped with a lemon caper sauce. A must-try is the fried lobster tail -- succulent lobster tail fried to a golden brown and served with drawn butter and lemon.
There's also a Florida stone crab special worth trying. Jumbo stone crab are served over a bed of ice, served with cottage fries and coleslaw for $28 per pound. This special is good Fridays and Saturdays only.
A highlight on the menu is the creamed spinach. Delicious, fresh spinach is sautéed and creamed and served with a hint of nutmeg.
For dessert, try the apple streusel, topped with caramel and served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
Other desserts include a chocolate ganache cake and pecan crunch cheesecake.
The Flame Steakhouse is a great place to eat in the downtown El Cortez Hotel. It's quiet, casual and you get a good meal at a reasonable price. The next time you're downtown, give it a try.
