More than 20 years is a long time for a restaurant to be open in Las Vegas. Sonoma Cellar, the steakhouse at Sunset Station in Henderson, made it through the china anniversary and instead redecorated with a chic new decor paired with a revamped menu.
The renovated space features a light gray stone façade with white trim on the exterior. Inside, the restaurant takes on the look of a wine cellar with stone walls and iron fixtures. Pops of emerald green stand out against the light gray and white space.
The restaurant doubled its bar space with bar stools in emerald green, a white bar and cream club chairs set against mirrored walls. The main dining room features cream colored chairs and emerald colored booths. Curved arches hug the room.
Louisiana-born chef Britt Beeland had his own renovation in the kitchen with a new menu that features meats through Niman Ranch and aged in-house. The new menu features a crab cocktail served with white remoulade, Penn Cove mussels, table side steak tartar, bone marrow, and smoked pork belly made with a Southern grits mousse, bourbon maple and rainbow chard. Old favorites such as the 20-ounce rib eye, shrimp cocktail and oysters return.
A bar menu from 4 to 6 p.m. daily hits on Beeland’s Louisiana roots with Cajun dishes such as fried green tomatoes, Buffalo frog legs and crab dip.
The wine cellar features 280 varieties.
Sonoma Cellar is open for dinner daily from 5 p.m., with happy hour starting at 4 p.m. in the bar area.
