Gallagher’s Steakhouse at New York New York Hotel & Casino
We’re not really into red meat so we rarely eat at a steakhouse. One day we were gambling at the New York New York casino. Pre-trip we noticed that something wasn’t right with the express comp balance on our Mlife account (MGM Resort’s players club). So after our gambling session we walked over to the players club desk to have them check what was wrong. The young man that was doing some research for us noticed we just reached a platinum tier status with Mlife. He gave us new players cards and offered us a comped meal since we weren’t staying at New York New York this time. He gave us a meal voucher for $150 and we could pick the restaurant. We decided to give Gallagher’s a try.
We weren’t going to have a three course meal since we already had a slice of pizza two hours before. We decided we just wanted a solid main course and dessert maybe. When we walked in we were greated at the front desk immediately. A very friendly young lady brought us to our table and introduced us to our waitress for the evening. We received the menus and the waitress took our drink order. We took a couple of minutes to absorb the atmosphere. Their classic interior, dark wood and large quantity of framed pictures indicates you are having dinner at an above average restaurant. And above average it was indeed!
Our waitress returned with our drinks and we were ready to order. We ordered the Dry-Aged New York Sirloin and the Center Cut Filet Mognon with a shallot & beaujolais sauce. In both cases we asked to cook our steaks medium to well done. Our waitress suggested we would stick to medium as close as possible so our meat wouldn’t turn out to be dry. We agreed with her, just a little over medium was ok with us. On the side we had Seasoned Jumbo Steak Fries and Buttermilk Breaded Onion Rings.
After about 20 minutes our food arrived. As you can see on the pictures below, the food looked great. The meat looked beautiful and the beaujolais sauce has a wonderful smell. Our steaks were cooked to perfection. The Filet Mignon didn’t show a trace of fat and the Sirloin was very juicy. This was without doubt the best steak we had ever had. And that coming from people who aren’t all that into steaks should tell you something. The Onion Rings were freshly made and the Jumbo Steak Fries had exactly the right amount of seasoning. All in all an incredibly tasty meal. After finishing our steaks we were full and decided to skip dessert. Total bill was $135, tip included.
