Don’t Cut This Place . . .

It deserves your presence. The Final Cut Steakhouse in the Hollywood Casino has not been my first choice for a steak place. For starters, it’s in a casino. But a bit ago, I wandered on through and had one of the best rib eyes I’ve had in Kansas City – the Final Cut Tomahawk Chop. There’s not much I can say about perfection, but even with the bone-in, this Australian wagyu 28 ounce master was both terrifying and inviting. Fortunately, there’s no law that says you must finish your meal and I didn’t even have to lie about having a dog. 

Everything I had that night was excellent, but what I want to tell you about are four reasons you should give this place a shot if you haven’t already. Two of them are Wednesdays and Thursdays: you can get their KC strip with a loaded baked potato and soup or salad for 20 bucks and add an app or dessert at half price. Or you could also choose their Surf and Turf for just $30 – that’s a 7 ounce filet accompanied by a crab cake, scallops, shrimp or lobster tail with a side and soup or salad. The final coup de grace on those nights is that selected bottles of wine are half-price. To me, that makes Wednesday and Thursdays really special -- those are really good deals, especially for food this good. 

The third reason is that I note this place is racking up the awards, but the one that especially catches my eye is the Award of Excellence they’ve captured the last three years from the Wine Spectator. And although the casino is open, this restaurant is closed Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday. Fourth reason: I can go there Friday nights for a great prime rib dinner for 40 bucks. Fifth and final reason: you do NOT feel like you’re in a casino and this one does have some really interesting sidelights with the Hollywood memorabilia which makes it entertaining, too.
