PY Steakhouse Restaurant Review: PY Steakhouse seems a world apart from the ever-busy Casino del Sol. Soft lighting, plush seating, artisanal cocktails and artfully presented plates all add up to a fine evening even if you aren’t a big winner at the poker tables. Begin with the grilled romaine Caesar salad or the Southwestern corn crème brûlée, rich with lobster and avocado. Seafood lovers have several tempting entrée choices, like the shrimp from nearby Guaymas, Mexico, that’s served with fresh fusilli. As to be expected, steaks are the draw. Dry-aged cowboy rib-eyes, Prime NY strips and center-cut filets are cooked to order. Add one of the “enhancements,” such as foie gras, shrimp scampi or lobster, and you’re a high-roller. Sides are plentiful and have a distinct Southwestern taste. Au gratin potatoes with green chile and bacon pair well with just about anything on the menu, and the Brussels sprouts with mesquite-grilled pork belly will make a vegetable fan out of anyone. There’s an admirable wine list, but the cocktails, built with the same passion and care that the kitchen takes with dinner, are the way to go. From the short dessert list, we like the sticky fig cake. P.S. on PY: Tapas and Early Bird menus are available.
