Tender Steak & Seafood Restaurant Review

: Walking into the lounge of Tender immediately transports guests from the clamor of the casino floor. Plush leather couches and dark woods make each table feel intimate, like sitting in one’s own living room. Proceed further back and the bar opens up to the main dining room, where cozy booths around the perimeter offer a semi-private dining experience. Starters are tasting platters that might include house-cured, apple wood-smoked Skuna Bay salmon with Niçoise-style vegetable salad in truffle vinaigrette. Tender attempts to source most of its products locally as much as possible, such as the honey dates from Pahrump that accompany the artisanal cheese platters. The charcuterie plate is filled with game deli meats, such as antelope pastrami, from small-batch producers. Among steaks are the range-fed Silver Fern Farms (New Zealand) boneless rib-eye, and a 14-ounce Durham Ranch (Wyoming) bison. Specialties include bison osso buco on creamy potatoes with roasted pepper bison reduction and barbecued sweet onions. The wild game tasting includes game from the Broken Arrow Ranch (Texas) with antelope osso buco, venison medallion and wild boar loin with farro, fig chutney and cranberry venison reduction. For dessert, don't miss Tender’s version of Grandma's chocolate cake, a layer cake covered in a ganache dome. The wine list complements the meat-heavy menu.
