Steakhouse 46 at Flamingo Las Vegas has officially closed up shop, we’re sad to say. This beloved steakhouse was named after the year the Flamingo first opened, 1946.

One of Steakhouse 46's specialties was its basted meats. "We're master basters!" they would proclaim. At which point we were probably fired.

Bonus Flamingo factoid: The original Flamingo hotel cost $6 million to build.

“So, now where will I ever find great steak on the Strip?” you ask, providing us the perfect opportunity to talk up some steakhouses in the neighborhood of the famed Flamingo, five to be exact.

Let’s start with the Steakhouse at Bill’s Gamblin’ Hall & Casino, a restaurant that harkens back to the early days of Vegas, with crushed re velvet booths, a stained-glass dome ceiling and an old-fashioned attention to putting the customer first.

Yes, we take photos of everything. Leave us alone. It's easier than having a life.

Our Steakhouse at Bill’s hook-up: On Mondays, get any bottle of wine half-off with the purchase of an entree.

Next, just across Flamingo Blvd., it’s the Bally’s Steakhouse.

The Bally's Steakhouse has done it all and seen it all. We can't wait to read its autobiography.

This welcoming steakhouse has a storied history, and continues to serve up reasonably-priced, high-quality fare. Our insider tip: Before dinner, have a cocktail at the brand-new Steakhouse Bar. The perfect spot to meet up with friends, or those who are about to be. (Hello, it’s Vegas!)

Next on our Tour d’Meat (not a real term), continuing south on Las Vegas Blvd., is Les Artistes Steakhouse at Paris Las Vegas. Feast your eyes on the meaty gloriousness of Les Artistes below.

Oh, now we have your attention. When it comes to Vegas, it's all about bone-in. (Can't fire us twice!)

Les Artistes is a singular dining experience. It’s supremely romantic, and the architecture is nearly as impressive as the menu. We’ve yet to have anything at Les Artistes we haven’t loved, and that includes our latest visit, where we’re pretty sure we ate escargot, something we never thought we do without being tortured first.

On the other side of Flamingo, in our quest for steak, there’s the Range Steakhouse at Harrah’s.

We haven't personally eaten here yet, but it smells good, so that's a great start.

You’ll find all your favorites, including seafood, and wrap-around windows provide stunning views of the Strip, including the entrance to The Forum Shops across the street at Caesars Palace.

And speaking of Caesars, give Neros a try.

Neros Caesars Palace

No apostrophe, just like there's none in Caesars. Whip those factoids out at your next dinner party.

Neros is more than a steakhouse, but that’s where this well-respected restaurant excels. The Black Angus, USDA-certified prime beef at Neros comes from Creekstone Farms and is dry-aged for nearly a month before being served. Unforgettable.

That should tide you over until we find out more about what’s next for the space occupied by Steakhouse 46. One thing’s guaranteed: There’s always something new to see (or devour) in Vegas.

Oh, and thanks to our friends at VegasChatter.com, one of our favorite Vegas blogs (that isn’t us), for the tip about the closing of Steakhouse 46. Hey, we can’t be everywhere at once.
