A First Look Inside Bavette’s

The new steakhouse at the Monte Carlo features chic and sultry decor, plus a secret speakeasy

Looking at the massive wall where Bavette’s sits at the Monte Carlo, customers would never guess that a 10,035-square-foot steakhouse from Chicago’s Hogsalt awaits. It almost has a speakeasy vibe with a massive wooden door opening to a curved entryway that leads to the hostess stand.

Inside, diners discover rooms within rooms, all dimly lit in an almost seductive tone with chandeliers, Tiffany lamps, and table lamps offering a glimpse of the handsome leather seatings and wood decor. To the left, the bar and lounge area, where customers can order from the full menu. On the right, two private dining rooms. A mix of semicircular booths and tables fill the dining room. At the rear, another hidden room, this time a sultry little lounge. Vintage art and murals by artist David Plunkert line the walls while jazz provides the soundtrack.

The steakhouse with an estimated $5.2 million budgeted for construction costs alone mimics the chic space with a throwback vibe of the Chicago sister restaurant.

Of course, the Monte Carlo is undergoing a $500 million transformation into Park MGM and NoMad Las Vegas. Already NoMad and Mario Batali and Joe Bastianich’s Eataly are anticipated for a 2018 reveal, and the French-inspired, vegetable-forward menu from Primrose already opened. An MGM Resorts spokesperson teased that more restaurant announcements are on the way at the resort.
