When the neon lights illuminate the midnight sky of Las Vegas, the cooks at Monte's Pizza Restaurant are still hard at work. They dart about their kitchen, checking on saucepans of marinara and bubbling pots of angel hair pasta before showering dough in creamy ricotta cheese, fresh basil, and plump sausages and loading pies into fiery ovens. Others layer crusty rolls with meatballs, steak, and salami before turning their attention to juicy slabs of baby back ribs sizzling on grills. Throughout the week, this kitchen staff keeps late hours, making its restaurant a popular spot for late-night carousers or sleepwalkers dreaming of enchanted meatballs that will grant them eternal beauty.
A "Pick of the Week" by the Las Vegas Review-Journal, ASCAR Cafe combines a love of automotive sport with some of the best burgers and fried catfish in town. Headlining the menu is the super-charged el camino burger, which piles on american cheese, thousand island dressing, shredded lettuce, and fried onion strings. Seafood items, such as the corvette catfish fillet, arrive fried or blackened with hush puppies and a choice of side like sweet potato nuggets or a slice of cake, though pinstriping will incur an extra charge. Items such as wraps, tacos, and sandwiches round out the offerings, though customers won't want to pass up the shop's signature fries topped with homemade chili and shredded cheese.
The Charcoal Room features top-grade cuts of meat, an extensive wine list, and fresh fish daily. The atmosphere is equal parts fine-dining class and low-key relaxation, like a news anchor whose desk is concealing a pair of sateen parachute pants. Peruse the menu to discover substantial steaks such as the pan-seared bone-in rib eye (22 oz., $32) and petite cuts such as the filet mignon (7 oz., $28). Classic salad styles such as the wedge ($7) or Caesar ($7) are perennially in good taste, complementing meat with the finest of chlorophyll. The boneless baby-back ribs ($10) and lobster mac 'n' cheese ($14) turn the traditionally difficult-to-eat into forkable fare. Since swords themselves always return from the grill too hot to eat, swordfish ($32) makes for a blade-inspired meal not forged by a sweaty blacksmith. Collect a cartel of iron-eaters who prefer their steak prepared on top of more steak and request a corner booth facing the door at The Charcoal Room.

As Dion Katsoris learned how to craft gyros and souvlaki from his Grecian-born parents on the north side of Chicago, Michael Mortensen mastered Mamma Calasse’s homemade meatball on Taylor Street, the main drag of Little Italy in Bridgeport. Though the Chicago natives relocated to Las Vegas as strangers, they bonded faster than crayons left in the sun over a shared love of the Windy City, particularly its sports teams. The duo remains divided on which baseball team reigns supreme—the White Sox or the Cubs—but, to local eaters’ delight, they agree on treating Sin City to a menu of their childhood eats at Taste A Chi-Town Eatery. They pay homage to their Midwestern hometown with deep-dish pizzas and hearty Vienna beef hot dogs on pretzel buns; a page of pitas and souvlaki plates is dedicated solely to Dion’s Greek roots and the Mount Olympus officials that frequent the eatery for business lunches.
From the dark-wood paneling to the burgundy carpeting's oft-traveled fibers, hints of vintage Vegas thrive inside The Golden Steer Steakhouse. Since 1958, the restaurant has been sliding prime rib and new york strips under the noses of anticipant diners?which many times have been affixed to the faces of American icons, including Frank Sinatra, Joe DiMaggio, Elvis Presley, and Marilyn Monroe. The long-tenured staff members add life to the legends, passing down stories at tables and behind the spacious bar, where a Victorian-inspired ambiance offers a tip of the fedora to San Francisco's Gold Rush era. The restaurant's famous cuts of prime rib and new york strip steaks earned it the Las Vegas Review Journal's title of Best Las Vegas Steakhouse in 2010 and 2013. During the spring of 2012, Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman officially named April 7 Golden Steer Day, honoring the steak house's residency in Sin City. In 2013, Zagat recommends this steakhouse above all other steakhouses in Vegas.
