The long-awaited Peter Luger Steak House Las Vegas is now accepting reservations through OpenTable. The Caesars Palace location marks the first domestic expansion for the storied brand in more than 60 years.

First opened in 1887, the legendary Peter Luger Steak House in Brooklyn continues its 135-year commitment to aging and serving America’s highest-quality beef. Sol Forman and his family purchased the restaurant at an auction in 1950 from the namesake’s sons. Once acquired, Forman’s wife, Marsha, hired a retired USDA inspector to teach her the secrets to selecting beef, a skill that has since been passed down through four generations of Forman family owners.

The family visits the New York meat markets, hand-selecting the best from an already narrow selection of USDA Prime beef. If chosen, loin and rib cuts are stamped with the family’s approval and brought to their on-site dry-aging facilities, where they are kept under carefully regulated temperature and humidity conditions until they are ready for butchering. Peter Luger Las Vegas has designed a dry-aging facility specifically for this location to ensure that the rigorous, time-tested standards are met.

“Caesars Palace is an iconic resort, and this partnership has allowed us to bring our family’s restaurant to the other side of America,” said Daniel Turtel, Vice President of Peter Luger Steak House. “From the classic industrial design that recalls the Brooklyn original to a state-of-the-art dry-aging room that keeps everything in-house, Caesars has worked with us tirelessly to bring our beloved brand to the heart of Las Vegas. We’re eager to open our doors.”

The menu, which has set the standard for American steak houses, is famously sparse. Regulars often order the Steak for One, Two, Three or Four without ever looking at a menu. The restaurant also offers Rib Steak for One or Two, seafood options and a variety of renowned appetizers, salads and sides. The star of the show is the world-famous Peter Luger Steak for Two, a giant porterhouse that has been dry-aged in-house to perfection before being butchered and cooked in a broiler to order. The steak is finished with butter on its serving platter and goes out sizzling. Additionally, Peter Luger fans line up for its signature Burger, which is only available at lunchtime. This traditional and flavorful half-pound lunch special is made with a patty full of USDA Prime chuck and dry-age trimmings. The burger is served simply, with or without cheese and a slice of raw onion. Guests can choose to order a side of Peter Luger’s famous extra-thick cut bacon for a meatier burger. Exclusive to the Las Vegas location, the Chilled Shellfish Tower perfectly complements Peter Luger’s notable signatures. The tower is stuffed with shrimp, oysters, Maine lobster and king crab.

“Caesars Palace has a long history of firsts and has played an instrumental role in elevating the culinary landscape of Las Vegas,” said Terrence O’Donnell, Vice President and Assistant General Manager of Caesars Palace. “We are so proud to bring the timeless tradition of Peter Luger to the West Coast for the first time. We know our guests will love the understated elegance and commitment to quality Peter Luger will bring to the wide array of dynamic offerings at Caesars Palace.”

Designed by Jeffrey Beers International, Peter Luger Steak House Las Vegas draws inspiration from the original Brooklyn location, featuring exposed brick, wood paneling, oak floors and tabletops, and industrial windows. The new restaurant spans 8,700 square feet and seats more than 300 people throughout the main dining room, large central bar and multiple private dining options.

The octagonal-shaped main dining room features a triple-height ceiling that creates an open and airy atmosphere with large contemporary bronze chandeliers, recalling the New York originals. Brick arches gracefully frame the room, adding Brooklyn charm that beautifully contrasts with modern design elements. From the main dining area, guests can watch the chefs prepare Peter Luger’s signature dishes in the impressive display kitchen. The private dining room offers an intimate, elevated dining experience with customized lighting and an exquisite wine display as the perfect backdrop. Artfully displayed curated photographs, paying homage to Peter Luger’s rich history and culinary tradition, are found throughout the restaurant.

Peter Luger Steak House Las Vegas will be the restaurant’s fourth location globally, preceded by Peter Luger in Brooklyn, Great Neck, N.Y. and Tokyo. Peter Luger Las Vegas opens this fall near MR CHOW at Caesars Palace. The restaurant’s operation hours are Wednesday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Monday and Tuesday from 5 to 10 p.m. For more information, guests can visit caesars.com/caesars-palace/restaurants/peter-luger-steak-house.
