Legendary New York steakhouse Peter Luger is coming to Caesars Palace, opening at the end of 2022 in the former space of Rao’s next to MR CHOW.

The iconic German beer hall setting has become famous for its oak-topped tables, notoriously gruff bow-tied waitstaff and USDA-Prime steaks. The family owners still follow in matriarch Marsha Forman’s tradition of hand-selecting the best selection of USDA Prime beef, which are then sent to on-site dry-ageing facilities and aged under carefully regulated temperature and humidity conditions. Peter Luger Steak House, 3570 Las Vegas Blvd. S., Las Vegas, NV 89109, 702-731-7110, 877-427-7243.
