The Palms has announced its new steakhouse, Scotch 80 Prime, will open in May. The upscale eatery supplants the closed N9NE Steakhouse as part of the more than $600,000 remodeling currently underway under General Manager Jon Gray. The massive top-to-bottom resort overhaul began soon after the property’s acquisition by Station Casinos last year.
Food & Wine magazine reports that the restaurant with prominent executive chef Barry Dakake back at the helm, as he was at N9NE, will serve certified Japanese Kobe beef.
Scotch 80 Prime will also feature $3 million worth of whisky on the menu. Some of the rare finds include Macallan Fine & Rare 1937 single malt scotch. The restaurant also plans to feature caviar towers with vodka shots, seafood towers set on fire, and a Liquid Nitro Dessert Trolley serving flambéed banana splits.
Kobe beef is meat from the Tajima strain of Japanese Black cattle, raised in Japan's Hyogo Prefecture under stringent regimes established by the Kobe Beef Marketing and Distribution Promotion Association. The meat is regarded as a delicacy, valued for its flavor, tenderness, and fatty, well-marbled texture.
