Old School Vegas Flashback: The Golden Steer, the Mafia and the Rat Pack

This week Glenn dips his fingers into the vault to pull out a lost episode. And it’s awesome. 

Hear the history of Las Vegas through the prism of its oldest steakhouse, the Golden Steer, which opened in 1958. Owner Michael Signorelli tells a great tale about how this became a famous haunt for entertainers, the mafia and high rollers.

The Golden Steer Steakhouse is also known for its famous and infamous customers such as: Tony "The Ant" Spilatro, Natalie Wood, Al Hirt, Nat "King" Cole, Joe DiMaggio, Elvis Presley and Mario Andretti just to name a few.

Here’s a few more: Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr. who found refuge here away from racism on The Strip.

The story is told by owner Dr. Michael Signorelli as well as Kevin Ball, Corporate Vice President - Strategic Sourcing at American Casino & Entertainment Properties (Stratosphere and more). Plus, a special appearance by Bruce Ford, SVP Business Development with Lodging Econometrics.

Eat at The Golden Steer! http://www.goldensteerlasvegas.com/introduction.html

Las Vegas Behind the Scenes!

This week Glenn is in Las Vegas and getting the scoop on the newest happening trends there. First, he speaks with Dan Bernbach, who is in charge of the brand new Park Theater at Monte Carlo, which opens next week. Hear about the theater, the big acts coming to town and how the Mote Carlo is in the midst of a two year transition and re-branding.

 

Then Glenn learns what it takes to have a successful restaurant concept in the most exciting dining city in the world. We look at Vegas F&B through the eyes of Chipper Pastron, partner of MCC Hospitality Group, which owns Morel’s at the Palazzo and Dragon Noodle at Monte Carlo. This guy has been associated with Las Vegas dining since before Wolfgang Puck, which is traditionally credited with kicking off the Vegas dining boom. Not so fast Wolfgang. We learn the truth.
