Delmonico Steakhouse Celebrates 20 Years of
Distinguished Dining

Throwback Menu Specials Offered May 3-12

 Delmonico Steakhouse will commemorate the 20th anniversary of its opening at The Venetian with menu specials from May 3-12 and other surprises throughout the year.

The anniversary specials will highlight some of the restaurant’s most beloved dishes throughout the years, including house cured tasso and smoked mushroom cream over angel hair pasta with fresh chives; crab mirliton stuffed Gulf oysters with bearnaise sauce; BBQ salmon with andouille potato hash homemade Worcestershire sauce and fried onion crust; bananas foster ice cream pie; and lemon icebox pie with strawberry coulis.

Delmonico Steakhouse has also designed a special commemorative logo which will appear on menus throughout the rest of the year, as well as on the lapels of all service staff.

“I opened Delmonico Steakhouse 20 years ago with the hopes of sharing the flavors of New Orleans with Las Vegas and to celebrate the art of dining,” said Chef Emeril Lagasse. “I’m grateful for the ongoing support of our customers, the Las Vegas community and The Venetian, who share and support these intentions. We look forward to continuing to share our traditions, cuisine and service with all our guests for many years to come.”

Delmonico Steakhouse is Chef Emeril Lagasse’s take on the classic American steakhouse with Creole influences. The restaurant brings back a time when cocktail hour was not to be missed and dinner with friends was a celebration. Located in Restaurant Row at The Venetian, Delmonico Steakhouse takes its name from the legendary, century-old New Orleans institution, Delmonico Restaurant and Bar. The restaurant has been a “Grand Award” recipient of Wine Spectator magazine since 2004, and named a “four-star restaurant” by Forbes Travel and a “Top 5 Steakhouse in the Nation” by National CitySearch. Chef de Cuisine Ronnie Rainwater has also been with the restaurant since shortly after its debut in 1999.

The anniversary celebrations will augment Delmonico Steakhouse’s current popular offerings, including Creekstone Farms steak selections, a rotating weekly chef’s menu with original inspirations from the kitchen, the one-of-a-kind Kitchen Table experience, an award-winning wine list and the unparalleled whiskey library featuring over 700 whiskey bottlings from countries, including Scotland, Ireland, USA, Canada, Japan, Taiwan and India.

Photos: Humanitarian of the Year – Emeril Lagasse Honored by James Beard Foundation

Chef Emeril Lagasse, executive chef and owner of four Las Vegas restaurants, was awarded the James Beard Foundation Humanitarian of the Year for 2013 Monday night in New York. I have attached three photos from last night’s event, with captions below. Lagasse received the award due to his devotion and service through the Emeril Lagasse Foundation, which he founded in 2002. To date, the Foundation has granted more than $5.5 million to children’s education and culinary arts programs in New Orleans, Las Vegas, and the Gulf Coast.

This esteemed award is given to an individual or organization whose work in the realm of food has improved the lives of others and benefited society at large.

“I’m humbled and honored to receive the Humanitarian Award from the James Beard Foundation,” said Emeril Lagasse. “Over ten years ago, I founded the Emeril Lagasse Foundation with the hope of giving back by exposing young people to the culinary arts-especially those who come from disadvantaged backgrounds. Over the years we’ve stayed true to our core values of education, mentorship, passion, creativity, self-discipline. I’m incredibly proud of the work we’ve done, the lives we’ve touched, and I’m deeply grateful to my many friends who have contributed their support along the way. I look forward to continuing on this path for years to come.”
