Say goodbye to locals' favorite The Flame Steakhouse at El Cortez. The restaurant shutters on Aug. 31 to make way for Siegel's 1941, a new 24-hour restaurant.
The new concept plans to have an historic look decked out in archival artwork.
Some items from the Flame, such as the roasted prime rib and seasonal stone crab will remain on the menu, but expect what Siegel's is calling "Morning. Noon. Night." menus.
The name is a tip of the hat to Bugsy Siegel, who bought the resort from J. Kel Houssels with fellow mobsters Meyer Lansky, Gus Greenbaum and Moe Sedway in 1945 for $600,000. El Cortez was originally built in 1941.
More to come.
