SW Steakhouse - Las Vegas

I took a hiatus from Vegas for about a year, which was both financially and liver health beneficial. I broke the hiatus for a celebration of a college friend's engagement with 11 other Michigan buddies - a worthy cause. I can only do Vegas for two nights, with one of them usually a nice and fun dinner. One of the other guys planed the dinner for Saturday night at SW, the steakhouse in the Wynn resort. We had a great table outside by the water and waterfall, which apparently does little "shows" every so often. Our favorite was a giant frog singing Garth Brooks. Funny.

The meal was very good, but the steak was excellent, some of the best I've had in a while. I started with a cesar salad, but it was in a fun presentation. The lettuce was on the left side, lightly dressed, with a drisle of more dressing on the right side of the plate. The table ordered a bunch of sides to share, and my only complaint is that they weren't that large to share. James loved the truffle creamed corn, which was excellent, and I liked the creamed spinach since it wasn't overly creamy. We also had mashed potatoes and a lobster mac 'n cheese.

But the star of the show was the steak, something everyone agreed with. I went with a 9 oz. fillet and it was tasty. They serve the meat with a nice char on the outside, which made each bite nice and salty with a crisp. I made sure to take intermediate bites of sides so that steak would last, but I loved how this was a great fillet that is different that other fillets of similar quality.

SW might not be the best meal in town, but it was very good with some of the best steaks I've had in a while. If you sit outside the scenery is also great.  Everyone had a great time eating and toasting our "bachelor", which only led to more fun for the rest of evening.
