Chicago Steakhouse at Gold Strike Has New Look

 Chicago Steakhouse at Gold Strike Has New Look

Gold Strike Casino recently renovated the Chicago Steakhouse and it reopened last week with new decor, new items on the menu and a whole new dessert menu that will make your taste buds dance. So I did what any foodie would do, I made a reservation and prepared myself for a mouth watering meal.

I was greeted by the steakhouse manager, Andreas Karaminas, and taken to my seat in the beautifully redecorated dining room. The new decor brings a contemporary twist to the upscale steakhouse. For photos of the new decor, click here.

I started with the seared scallops as an appetizer. They arrived to the table on top of a bed of homemade sweet potato and bacon hash. The scallops were melt in your mouth good and the flavors of the hash pulled it all together. For my entree, I asked my server Brandon what he recommended and that was the Miso Marinated Black Cod in a Soy Burre Blanc sauce. Raymond told me that this was the Chef’s favorite dish and if I didn’t like it, the Chef would probably cry. To be honest I am not a fish person, but I would order this every time I eat here. It was that good! The flaky cod perfectly seared and covered with the sauce was yummy. No worries Chef, it was perfect.

Even though I was stuffed I couldn’t leave without trying out some of the new desserts. I am a lover of creme brûlée and there were two new dishes that called my name. First was the apricot creme brûlée that took the ordinary dish up a notch. Then there was the Creme Brûlée cheesecake. I wanted to scream to the whole restaurant how good this cheesecake was. Think New York style cheesecake with a crispy creme brûlée topping. Pair either of these desserts with an after dinner cordial or coffee and your stomach will be thanking you.

Director of Culinary Operations Chef Andrew Smith and Chicago’s Room Chef Chris Zelienski and their entire staff have done a wonderful job on the new menu items. Next time you are craving a steak, seafood or just dessert be sure to think of Chicago Steakhouse. Chicago is open 7 days a week 5:30pm – 10pm Sunday through Thursday and 5:30p – 11:00p Friday and Saturday. Reservations are recommended. Call 662-357-1225 for table reservations or reserve online at OpenTable.com.

Authors note: The Steakhouse is not the only restaurant getting a new look at Gold Strike so is their buffet. The Buffet Americana will open later this month. Be sure to check back as we will have a review on the new buffet when it opens.
