If you’re looking for a fine dining experience that won’t break the bank, you’re in luck at Golden Nugget Las Vegas. The resort’s Vic & Anthony’s Steakhouse offers an incredible three course meal at an unbeatable price.
The prix fixe menu at Vic & Anthony’s isn’t widely publicized, but the restaurant’s “Distinctive Dining Deal” can be found on the official Web site. You’ll need to print the menu (it’s in .pdf format) and present it to your server to get the deal.
Here are the specifics.
The prix fixe meal costs $49.95 per person and features an appetizer, entree and dessert.
The meal begins with a freebie you won’t find on the menu, fresh bread.
Next up is the starter course.
Guests choose from Lobster Bisque, a Beefsteak Tomato and Onion salad or Iceberg Wedge Salad. We went for the latter. Simple and refreshing.
Before diving into the entree, you’ll want to indulge in a cocktail, of course.
Any of the signature cocktails will do. It’s Vegas, after all.
The second course of the prix fixe menu is the true star of the show.
Guests can choose between an eight ounce filet mignon, fresh fish or Shrimp Scampi Bucatini.
If you’ve had any of these dishes in Las Vegas before, you quickly realize any of them would typically cost about as much as your entire meal at Vic & Anthony’s.
Included in the price of the prix fixe meal are a selection of “personal sides.” Choose from au gratin potatoes, haricot vert (that’s French for green beans) or creamed spinach.
While the term “personal side” may give the impression the portions will be dainty, the sides at Vic & Anthony’s are anything but. In fact, any of the sides could be a meal on their own.
The au gratin potatoes were off-the-charts excellent.
We also enjoyed the creamed spinach, despite it being, you know, spinach-based.
The first two courses, along with the bread and sides, are completely filling, but you’ll want to save room for dessert.
The third course gives guests an almost impossible choice: Croissant Bread Pudding, Creme Brulee or Chocolate Mousse Cake.
This is where dining with a companion comes in handy! First we went for the creme brulee. It was some of the best creme brulee we’ve had in Las Vegas, and we’ve had a lot.
The chocolate mousse cake was a thing of beauty and capped off the perfect meal.
This amazing meal, of course, is set against the welcoming, old-school charm of Vic & Anthony’s Steakhouse. The service is top-notch, and the servers are world-class.
Vic & Anthony’s Steakhouse has a winner in its prix fixe menu, and it’s one of our favorites at any restaurant in Las Vegas. Don’t miss out on this great fine dining deal. There’s no telling how long it will last once the word gets out.
