N9NE Steakhouse, Las Vegas

The Palms
4321 W. Flamingo Road
Las Vegas , Nevada
Tel: 702 933 9900's insider take:

In the kitchen of N9NE Steakhouse at the Palms, it's common to hear chefs yelling things like "Vince Neil ordered the gnocchi—remember, easy on the cream!" Or, "Britney/Jessica/Brad ordered the somethingorother—no basil!" You're virtually guaranteed to sit next to Hollywood celebs at N9NE, who dine here time and again because the kitchen remembers their preferences (however quirky). It isn't subtle: The dining room is thumping with club tunes, and all steaks can be topped with a Maine lobster tail or Alaskan King crab legs. Underneath the glitz and glam, however, is a solid Chicago steakhouse (where the original N9NE is located) that cooks wet-aged steaks in a 1,200-degree oven; the flavor-packed 24-ounce bone-in rib eye is a winner. The bar isn't a bad place to settle in and order a few appetizers: crispy fried Carolina rock shrimp served in a Chinese takeout box; a sashimi sampler topped with tobiko caviar and minced serrano chiles; crab-stuffed mushrooms; and the official dish of Las Vegas, shrimp cocktail.

Open Sundays through Thursdays 5:30 to 10 pm, Fridays and Saturdays 5:30 to 11 pm.
