Las Vegas, Cooper, and Golden Steer

Just got back from Christmas in Vegas. It was Cooper's first road trip. He had fun playing cards with family and was weirded out by the sub-freezing, windy weather.

We topped off the trip with dinner at Golden Steer. It's the oldest steakhouse in Las Vegas (founded in 1958). Sammy Davis, Jr. wasn't allowed to dine at the casinos he was singing at, so he would go to Golden Steer after work.

Our waiter was a Bulgarian named Venko. He moved to America in 1988 and has been working at the restaurant since 1989. We started with the Caesar salad, which was made table side. The only other place where I've had my Caesar prepared next to me was at the Sage Room in South Lake Tahoe. I had the ribeye and it was tender, juicy, and flavorful. Here is a picture I found on Yelp.
