Resorts World isn’t done revealing all the food and beverage it has to offer. Carver Road Hospitality, the new hospitality company from nightlife impressario Sean Christie, plans to open Carversteak at the resort in December. The 14,500-square-foot restaurant stakes a claim as the city’s largest steakhouse and the resort’s only steak-focused restaurant.
Christie, who launched Carver Road Hospitality in April 2020, says Carversteak will be a new spin on the classic steakhouse with a restaurant that changes its mood and tone throughout the night.
The steakhouse specializes in thick dry-aged American cuts, global artisan beef producers, and Japanese-certified wagyu cuts. Teased dishes include a 12-hour slow-roasted prime rib and lobster thermidor en croûte, as well as caviar poppers, wagyu mini cheesesteak bites, and vegan dishes.
Carver Road Hospitality’s vice president of beverage and hospitality culture Francesco Lafranconi created the cocktails and wine list with a curated whisky collection that sits inside a tasting room. A terrace will showcase an “Avant-Garden” with classic and contemporary cocktails that use the on-site herb garden with its collection of mint varietals.
The main bar and lounge plan to feature the full menu, 24 bar seats, lounge seating, and a 30-foot LCD screen displaying art and sporting events.
Carver Road tapped design studio DesignAgency to create the mid-century modern look of the steakhouse that takes its inspiration from the Las Vegas landscape. Two private dining rooms — dubbed The Knife Shop and Scotch Room — a 70-foot honed quartzite stone bar, and 3,500-square-foot terrace complete with a bar, dining, and lounge gardens overlooking the Las Vegas Strip are just some of the design elements teased. The restaurant’s interior features rotating digital and traditional art pieces alongside a state-of-the-art lighting and sound system.
Christie is the former president of nightlife at MGM Resorts International, and worked as the executive vice president of business development for Wynn Resorts as well as the chief operating officer and the vice president of operations at Wynn Las Vegas. He owned Las Vegas Nightlife Group and was the managing partner of Encore Beach Club, Surrender Nightclub, and Andrea’s at Encore Las Vegas.
The $4.3 billion Resorts World opens on June 24 on the north end of the Las Vegas Strip with more than 40 food and beverage outlets announced so far.
