Tom Colicchio Opens Heritage Steak in Las Vegas

Tom Colicchio’s Heritage Steak, the newest restaurant from the James Beard Award-winning chef, has opened at the Mirage in Las Vegas. 

Notably, the menu focuses entirely on meats prepared over an open flame using a charcoal grill, wood-burning oven and a Grillworks Infierno, a versatile grill that also serves as a hearth, smoker, broiler and more. Colicchio uses a variety of specialized cooking methods when preparing the restaurant’s meats (antibiotic-free, we hear), including Brandt Beef and Snake River Farms, which he sources from ranchers across the United States. 

Dishes include a New York Strip Steak with Pepper Chutney Bordelaise and Duck Breast with Duck Chorizo and Smoked Peaches. (All side dishes are seasonal, making return visits a must.) Heritage Steak’s beverage options include a good range of wines, a variety of specialty cocktails and craft beers on tap. Bonus: A collection of rare and high-end whiskies is also available.

We say the restaurant sounds like an upscale man-cave, with a hearth and a photo mural featuring charred firewood by photographer Amanda Weil. There's a leather-clad wall and walnut-beamed ceiling, as well as a lounge and a private dining room for special events and gatherings.
