6 p.m. — Oscar’s Steakhouse

Former Las Vegas mayor Oscar Goodman has his own steakhouse inside the Plaza with recipes inspired by his family. Try dishes such as Joey C’s filet mignon, Sally’s New York strip, spicy flame-charred Spilotro steak with a side of Ralph’s smashed potatoes, or Joe Pig’s pork chop. Every once in a while, Goodman throws a dinner to talk about his days as a mob attorney for a real slice of old school Las Vegas charm. That glass-domed restaurant was once the Center Stage Restaurant, and appeared in Casino with Robert De Niro and Sharon Stone as well as Pay It Forward with Kevin Spacey.

Downtown’s revitalization begins with the Downtown Cocktail Room, the swanky speakeasy with chichi drinks and a smooth setting. First-timers might miss the front door with its indiscrete sign and even more difficult-to-find front door.
