  • Dinner at Oscar's Beef - Booze - & Broads: Plaza Hotel & Casino - July 10th, 2017

    Former Las Vegas Mayor Oscar B. Goodman opened Oscar's Beef * Booze * Broads, a uniquely Las Vegas steakhouse, inside the iconic dome of the Plaza Hotel and Casino overlooking Fremont Street and the heart of Downtown Las Vegas. The decor of Oscar's is glamorous and incorporates memorabilia from Goodman's 12-year tenure as mayor and classic photographs of Las Vegas over the years. Oscar's steakhouse features perfectly aged steaks cooked over a 600 degree grill. Flavorful, tender and juicy, Oscar's beef is cooked to perfection and is accompanied by high-quality, made-from-scratch sides.



    Located adjacent to the steakhouse is Oscar's famous bar, serving a wide variety of delicious, hand-crafted cocktails, including legendary martinis, the former mayor's signature drink.



    A must-visit restaurant when it comes to fine dining in Downtown Las Vegas, Oscarís Beef Booze Broads offers a classic an unforgettable steakhouse experience. Former Las Vegas Mayor Oscar B.

    In addition to great food, Oscarís Beef Booze & Broads pairs a great meal with the unique opportunity to have one of Oscarís ďBroadsĒ visit with customers during dinner. These attractive women will be dinner companions who can discuss subjects such as politics, sports, wine, Las Vegas history or things to do downtown or on the Strip. When not dining with customers, they will roam the Downtown Las Vegas restaurant as hostesses, adding to the glamorous and uniquely Vegas style of Oscarís.

    There were no "broads" the night we dined as it was a Monday. They may only be there on the weekend.

    The menu! The menu is full of classic steakhouse fares. They have your fancy steaks, seafood, and lots of tasty sides. What kicks this menu up a notch is that many of the items are named after Vegas big wigs and many known Mafia figures. Gotta love Oscar and his style!

    It was nice to see a few changes on the menu since our last visit. The "forever" 24 ounce Ribeye special is still not listed on the menu but your server will give you the details. Even though I didn't order it this trip, it still remains one of my Las Vegas favorites.

    Our server was Lenore who has been there like forever. Most of Oscar's servers have been there since the restaurant opened and Lenore is one of those servers. Lenore is very professional but very subdued. She was constantly attentive and we reminiscing about Center Stage reataurant, which was the previous name of Oscar's and how the Zipline ruined the Fremont Street Light Show view from Oscar's.

    The Mob Meatballs are a MUST appetizer. I order them evey time I go to Oscar's. Roast chicken, aromatic vegetables and parmigiana cheese meatballs simmered in a tomato basil sauce topped with Ricotta. ($16) They were wonderful.



    Next was JASPER & HUNCHY'S TOMATO SALAD - Seasonal tomatoes, burrata cheese, EVOO, micro greens ($11)

    Fresh ingredients made for a fantastic appetizer.



    Dorene had CONIORTE'S CORN & CRAB BISQUE soup. Roasted sweet corn and Alaskan king crab ($9) Very creamy with a lot of crab.

    Predictable me had CRAZY PHIL'S ONION SOUP - Variety of onions caramelized with sherry infused white veal stock ($9) Oscar's version
    rates right at the top of my list for French (Phil's) Onion Soup.






    For main courses, Dorene chose GRILLED VEGETABLE LASAGNE - Sundried tomato marinara, fresh mozzarella ($25)

    Not sure what happened here or if it was the way this dish is normally served but I have never seen a Lasagne served without layers of pasta.
    This one was. I think Dorene was disappointed by this version. If this is a normal way to serve this item, perhaps it should be mentioned there is no
    pasta? It was still good but to Dorene, not a traditional dish.



    I chose Bone- In Filet which was a special that night. ($64)

    The last time we were at Oscar's I ordered a meduim rare steak and it came out vary rare. This time it was perfect. But note the course salt on the top.

    There was also a lot of salt on the Steak fries and even on the asparagus we ordered. It was just a bit too much salt at one meal and I did feel the affects
    about an hour later.



    We shared two sides.

    French fries.

    Even though they were over-salted, the taste was amazing, the best I have ever had. ($9)



    We also shared a side of asparagus. Notice the salt.



    Oscars is a little hidden gem in the heart of downtown Las Vegas.

    What a great experience, from the moment we walked in we were treated like royalty.

    Ambiance: Gorgeous! The center glass chandelier really sets a romantic and modern vibe. The first thing you notice as you walk into the restaurant is the dome shaped glass window. It's jaw dropping! The wide side glass windows really opens up the space and gives the entire place a truly unique dining experience.

    Service: You really can't ask for better service there. We had the manager Justin come check on us a few times. Lenore even though not very upbeat, just very laid back kind of server, was great.

    Steakhouse Hours: Daily 5pm - Close (Lounge Opens at 4pm)
