Vegas Player magazine puts out a series of video segments featuring Vegas-related subjects, and we enjoyed this one featuring Timothy Henderson, Chef de Cuisine at Old Homestead Steakhouse at Caesars Palace.
We didn’t actually realize Old Homestead gets its meat from a specialty butcher on the East Coast, home of the original Old Homestead restaurant. Henderson says Old Homestead is the only restaurant in Las Vegas acquiring its 21-day dry-aged meat this way.
Some mashed potatoes, and we’re good to go.
We stopped by Old Homestead just before it opened for some pics. (It opens at 5:00 p.m. each day.)
We tend to stop at the bar first. So sue us.
The original Old Homestead restaurant in New York dates back to 1868, the same year the stapler was patented in England by C. H. Gould. “What does the stapler have to do with steak?” you ask. Your insolence is duly noted.
We have the sudden impulse to stand up when women come to the table. Weird.
Another, perhaps more relevant, fact about Old Homestead? The restaurant has a wine list that tops 15,000 bottles.
Not a bad spot for people-watching, we should add.

Bio: The Pulse of Vegas blog includes references to “we” often. But it’s actually written by one (incredibly modest) individual, Scott Roeben, a humorist, photographer, author and longtime Las Vegas resident. “We should probably interview ourselves sometime. We find us fascinating,” he says.
The Pulse of Vegas blog is the official Las Vegas blog of Caesars Entertainment, the folks who run a bevy of Las Vegas hotels. It received the inaugural “Most Valuable Las Vegas Blogger” award by CBS Local/KXNT News Radio.
