Caesars Palace will soon close its Neros Steakhouse, replacing it with one of New York City’s most historic restaurants, Old Homestead Steakhouse. The new addition to the pantheon of Caesars restaurants is scheduled to open before the end of 2011.
Old Homestead will be located near The Colosseum and the planned Nobu Restaurant and Lounge, opening in 2012. It will feature a 250 seat capacity, with a full dining room, private dining room, lounge and bar.
San Francisco-based EDG Interior Architecture + Design will handle the design duties for the new eatery. The company previously designed Rao’s and Bradley Ogden at Caesars Palace.
Guests can expect several signature dishes from the restaurant’s New York City menu, including the Colossal Crab Cake, 32-ounce Gotham Rib Eye Steak and the Old Homestead New York-Style Cheesecake. New menu items will be created just for the Vegas location.
Our ears perked up when we learned more than 15,000 bottles will be housed on-site at Old Homestead at Caesars Palace.
A couple of goodies about Old Homestead: The restaurant originally opened in 1868. No, that is not a typo. It’s one of the longest continually-serving restaurants in America.
The restaurant was the first to serve Kobe Beef in the United States in 1995, and surpassed 10 million customers served in 2010. See more at the restaurant’s official site.
Neros Steakhouse is expected to close Sep. 18, so enjoy it while you can! Of all the Vegas restaurants we never got a chance to dine in, Neros was certainly one of them.
