In Vegas, you can have your steak and eat it, too. Opening in early 2014, Bally’s Las Vegas welcomes the New York favorite, award-winning restaurant BLT Steak.  

BLT Steak first opened in New York in 2004 and became one of the country’s most recognized steakhouses. The restaurant pairs classic steakhouse fare with a bistro-like setting. There are also BLT Steak locations in Los Angeles, Miami and Atlanta, to name a few. 

If you’re all about star-gazing, BLT Steak is popular among celebrities including Meg Ryan, Halle Berry, Clive Davis, Zack Braff,  Steve Carrell and “Real Housewives” Bethenny Frankel. With its upcoming location in Vegas, we’re sure you’ll spot a celebrity or two!

Come hungry and dress comfortably – we already know you’ll eat tons. The famed steakhouse is best known for its signature popovers – warm, airy golden Gruyère-laced dough puffs – served before every meal.  As much as we don’t want to spoil our appetites, these irresistible bites make it so hard to stop after one. The restaurant’s “blackboard specials” highlight the best seasonal dishes incorporating local ingredients.

It’s on and poppin’: BLT’s signature popovers are coming to Vegas!

Other menu options include tuna tartare, chopped vegetable salad, Dover sole, peanut butter chocolate mousse and USDA Prime and Certified Angus® steaks, like 28 day dry-aged NY strip to bone-in rib eye. 

How about some fine wine to go with your steak? Modeled after other BLT Steak’s award-winning lists, the wine list will feature more than 500 wines with Old World selections from the regions of Burgundy, Bordeaux, Piedmont, Tuscany and Riojo, among others.

“BLT Steak is a restaurant that is known around the country for its quality food, commitment to service and inviting atmosphere,” said Jeffrey Frederick, Caesars Entertainment regional vice president of food and beverage in Las Vegas.  “We look forward to bringing a restaurant of this high caliber to Bally’s guests and offering the first BLT Steak in Las Vegas to the local community.”

The Las Vegas location will occupy Bally’s Steakhouse current space. Here are some fun facts about the upcoming restaurant:

  • BLT Steakhouse will expand to 9,300 square feet (more than twice the size) and add 250 seats
  • The new restaurant will include a 50-seat curving bar and accompanying lounge.
  • The 184-seat main dining room can be converted into smaller, more intimate spaces for special events.
  •  BLT will have two private dining rooms, seating 10-12 guests.

The ambience will be just as divine as the food. The restaurant will feature rich wood finishes and neutral tones highlighted with amber, tangerine and stainless steel accents. Finally, the fireplace will be the dining room’s centerpiece. Think fancy with a warm, cozy touch.

BLT Steak joins Bally’s revitalization which includes the addition of VÉRONIC Voices, Drai’s After Hours and the Bally’s South Tower renovation. BLT Steak’s 2014 opening will be the next step in the Bally’s transformation.

    Would you know if the Servers from Bally’s Steakhouse are returning to BLT? We have been coming to the Steakhouse for 23 years and can’t fathom the thought of not having the “best” Servers in Las Vegas not be there. There are plenty of fine Steak Houses in Las Vegas, but the servers are what make the big difference.

    Hi Kevin, I believe if the same servers would like to stay in the space, they’ll just have to reapply/interview since it’s new owners taking over! You just may get a few of your longtime favorites!
