Sharing a meal out strengthens family bonds in a civilized way, unlike invading the neighborhood block party and laying siege to the bounce castle. Subjugate your hunger with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of contemporary fare and drinks at Steelz in Henderson.
Steelz, which opened its doors to diners at the beginning of September, arrays tables in what Las Vegas CityLife deems "much more than typical bar food," including specialty pizzas, burgers, and signature entrees. Sift fingers through or hide precious heirlooms inside a starter basket of sweet-potato, spicy harissa, or garlic-and-rosemary fries ($4.99) before sending jaws into smoky territory with the brie Angus burger, topped with applewood bacon, caramelized onions, and roasted-red-pepper aioli ($9.99). Four models of flatbread pizzas dapple their crispy stages with innovative toppings, such as the barbecue-chicken pizza's grilled poultry tidbits, spicy honey-molasses barbecue sauce, and spiced pears ($12.99). Apricot honey glaze and mango salsa lend the grilled salmon a tangy finish ($17.99), and diners can sweeten sides of sautéed spinach by arranging Israeli couscous bits into a connect-the-dots depiction of a winking Popeye.
Underneath red hanging lights and silver chandelier tendrils, metallic countertops host several of Steelz's house libations. Raspberry vodka and liqueur mingle with a champagne float in the Steelztini ($9), which beckons puckered lips and nearby hummingbirds with its sugared rim. Red and white wines pair up with meals, and Stella Artois, Blue Moon, and Shock Top beers cascade from the tap. Meandering eyes can anchor themselves to tabletop screens and wager at 24-hour video poker or peer upward at several of the bar's sports-friendly TVs.
