Meat, the handsomest of the nine food groups, gets its good looks from spice rubs, tenderizers, and long soaks in anti-aging marinades. Ogle seductive slabs with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of steak-house fare and drinks at Lux Steakhouse + Bar.
Lux sates stomachs with hearty steak-house entrees, delectable desserts, and refreshing libations. A passel of Alberta AAA or Prime steaks, such as the 12-ounce classic rib eye ($34), quell carnivorous cravings and can pair with optional surf selections including lobster at market price or a side of inflatable beach balls. Meanwhile, the towering Lux burger, with eight ounces of Kobe-style beef, double-smoked bacon, and an onion ring ($25), presents a multitiered tower of succulence. For dessert, a scorched marshmallow-s'mores cheesecake ($9) sparks childhood memories of fireside tax audits. Diners can sample these edibles while sipping offerings from Lux’s extensive wine list, which includes the Italian red Pasqua Ripasso, served by the glass ($10) or bottle ($40).
The eatery’s warm, modern interior brims with vibrant wall art, leather-backed chairs, and dark stained wood. A New York–style long bar serves up the full steak-house menu, and meal-complementing potables beside a stone fireplace alternately dispense warmth and jolly men bearing toys.

[[m:#### Lux Steakhouse + Bar
Several fixtures lend Lux Steakhouse + Bar an old-fashioned glamour: the leather-backed chairs, the dark, wood-panelled walls, and a menu anchored by thick cuts of Heritage Angus and Alberta AAA steaks. But Lux's decor updates the traditional steakhouse aesthetic with cool blue lighting, glass partitions, and a glowing waterfall that flows down a wall of marble tiles. Behind the long New York–style bar, bottles of aged whiskey share slides of their old barrels, and a global selection of wines by the glass or bottle pairs with both the cuisine and the dining room’s luxurious aura.
