Center Cut Steakhouse at the Flamingo closed on Thursday night to make way for a new steakhouse at the 70-plus-year-old resort. Cafe To Go and the Laurel Lounge also closed at the resort to make way for the new restaurant, teased by Caesars Entertainment to open in early 2020.
The Flamingo already filed paperwork for estimated $5.5 million renovation for a steakhouse dubbed Steaks & Alibis.
“The new steakhouse will pay homage to the resort’s iconic history of more than 70 years, while serving fresh and intriguing dishes in a modern, chic design. The steakhouse will be located where Center Cut, Café To Go and the Laurel Lounge were located,” Caesars Entertainment says in a press statement.
Center Cut opened in 2012 in the former Burger Joint space with a roster of rib-eye steaks and porterhouses that used beef sourced from Aspen Ridge Farms in Colorado. The black and white décor with pink accents gave the restaurant a classic Vegas atmosphere.
