MICHAEL MINA’S STRIPSTEAK AT MANDALAY BAY CELEBRATES 10-YEAR ANNIVERSARY WITH THROWBACK MENUS THIS OCTOBER
In a city that is constantly evolving, STRIPSTEAK at Mandalay Bay has remained a guest favorite. This year the popular steakhouse by James Beard Award-winning chef Michael Mina will celebrate its 10-year anniversary. Since the restaurant opened in 2006, it’s been known for being the only restaurant in Las Vegas to butter-poach the finest cuts of meat before finishing them on a Mesquite wood-burning grill. This signature cooking method creates tender, juicy steaks that have kept fans coming back for more. Since its debut, STRIPSTEAK has served more than 1.5 million guests.
Popular dishes such as the American Wagyu Ribcap, Truffled Mac ‘n’ Cheese and House-made Beignets with dipping sauces are complemented with an award-winning list of more than 110 single malt scotches. Every table at STRIPSTEAK is presented with a trio of Duck Fat Fries as a complimentary amuse bouche. A true crowd pleaser, the Duck Fat Fries is the restaurant’s most photographed dish on social media and Yelp. As a tribute to all of the great dishes from the past and present, the restaurant will offer special dish and cocktail selections from previous menus throughout the month of October.
“What a fun 10 years it has been,” said Chef Michael Mina. “I want to thank our amazing restaurant team who continues to execute outstanding cuisine and service nightly, our Mandalay Bay family who has been supportive since our arrival and of course, our guests who return time and again. We wouldn’t be here without you. I look forward to many more good times ahead.”
Beginning October 1, guests will be able to enjoy anniversary specials from the restaurant’s 10 successful years. Items will be available à la carte and priced from $14-$50. Michael Mina’s Root Beer Float, a signature dessert served at a number of the famed chef’s restaurants and STRIPSTEAK favorite, the Rock n’ Rye cocktail will be available to order throughout October.
