Already you can make reservations for Searsucker from former Top Chef contestant and The Taste host and judge Brian Malarkey, making his first foray into Las Vegas. The restaurant opens at Caesars Palace on Friday, March 27, with a cowboy theme and dishes meant to share.

The restaurant sitting next to Omnia Nightclub, opening March 12 at the resort, features what Malarkey calls “a contemporary spin on American classic comfort foods.”

Dishes here fall into categories such as small plates, robust meats and sweets. Look for a 38-ounce bone-in ribeye “tomahawk” steak, a dish dubbed “eggs + bacon ‘pork belly’” with a soft poached egg with brown butter Hollandaise, another called “beer-braised short rib + horseradish + fried onions with pan sauce and butter potato,” and finally a S’mores bar with salted caramel ganache, honey chocolate mousse, marshmallow, chocolate ice cream and cookie crumble. Order up jalepeño-chorizo “corn off the cob” or fried Brussels sprouts and walnuts with anchovy red wine jalapeño vinaigrette as sides.

The 7,500-square-foot restaurant with room for 138 diners features a design by Thomas Schoos that embraces the retro American roadside diner with dashes of cowboy culture. Coarse rope chandeliers hang overhead, neon “Eat” signs flash and tables made from rustic wood and marble dot the landscape inside. Schoos himself created several large whimsical paintings. A private dining room seats 32 and a “first-come first-serve” bar area round out the restaurant.

Bar service here starts at 4:30 p.m. with the first tables seated at 5 p.m. nightly. With the proximity to Omnia, expect Searsucker to stay open late.
