Celebrity Chef Michael Mina offers delicious steaks, seafood and modern steakhouse fare at Stripsteak in Mandalay Bay. The sleek, modern restaurant opens to the convention center hall and has urban charm.
A variety of shellfish like Maine lobster, Alaskan King crab and chilled clams are a great way to start your meal. Savory appetizers like foie gras sliders, roasted mushroom soup with garlic confit and Parmesan butter also make good starters.
For entrees, choose from great cuts of in-house dry-aged beef. There are also seafood dishes like salmon and scallops, as well as other meats like veal chops, lamb and chicken.
If you do want beef, the 12-foot wood-burning grills can sear your steak to perfection, using different types of wood that create a unique, charred crust. Six circulation machines allow chefs to utilize low cooking temperatures for slow poaching. This allows dishes to cook in oils, butter and juices for eight hours, infusing the meat with flavor and tenderness before it is finished in the wood-burning oven.
