The Flamingo Las Vegas debuts its new steakhouse replete with a bakery in the front, a speakeasy inside with its own menu, and a chef who won the job on Vegas Chef Prizefight.

Bugsy & Meyer’s Steakhouse reveals its $10 million renovation, taking over the former Center Cut Steakhouse space at the resort. The steakhouse takes its name from Benjamin “Bugsy” Siegel and business partner Meyer Lansky, who opened the Flamingo Las Vegas in 1946. At the time, the resort brought Hollywood panache as the first resort-style hotel on the Strip.

Inside, the steakhouse offers a dry-aged meat cooler in the main dining room, a bar and lounge, a raw bar, three private dining rooms, and a hidden speakeasy dubbed The Count Room.

Studio K Creative out of Chicago worked with designer Jonathan Adler to create the look of the space. Adler built a custom-beaded piece of flamingo artwork that took 100 hours to make. She Hit Pause from New York City selected the artwork.

Lamar Moore won the Food Network competition series Vegas Chef Prizefight for the job as head chef. The Chicago-based chef joins executive chef Honorio Mecinas, formerly at Old Homestead at the Caesars Palace, in the kitchen.

Moore’s Southern dishes find a home on the menu, as do lobster tails, Alaskan king crab, foie gras, B&M scampi, Point Reyes cheese fondue, and more. The raw bar kitchen in the main dining room brings shellfish towers with charcoal grilled enhancements. Of course, steaks play a major role on the menu with a mix of domestic prime, wet-aged and dry-aged prime, and imported wagyu, along with prime rib roasts, American wagyu short ribs, pan-roasted lamb loin, fresh Dover sole meuniere, and more.

The 1940s favorite rum cocktails find a place on the drinks menu, as do Prohibition-era and contemporary cocktails. Bugsy & Meyer’s also features a wine list by the glass and bottle.
