New York-based hospitality company announces STK’s fourth location and Executive Chef Stephen Hopcraft
Las Vegas, Nev.; November 23, 2010—New York-based The ONE Group seduces the city by bringing its edgy steakhouse, STK, to the Las Vegas strip this December. With siblings in Los Angeles and Miami as well, STK Las Vegas arrives December 15, 2010, at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas with its high-energy and sexy vibe. The ONE Group has also named Stephen Hopcraft (Bravo’s ‘Top Chef’ and Food Network’s ‘Chefs vs. City’) as executive chef.
Aptly coined, “not your daddy’s steakhouse,” STK redefines the American steakhouse experience by combining the vibrant pulse of an upscale restaurant with the soul of a downtown lounge. When it comes to the meat of the matter, STK offers three separate plate sizes—Small, Medium and Large—providing portions that will satisfy appetites both petite and voracious. For example, diners may choose a 6-ounce Filet Medallion from the Small selection, a 16-ounce New York from the Medium, or a 24-ounce Porterhouse from the Large, all served with their choice of STK’s signature sauces, including toasted peppercorn, lemon mustard, and herb béarnaise.
While the menu spares no expense on bringing premium cuts of meat to the table, Hopcraft will also offer an array of salads, seafood, and non-meat items sure to please any palate. STK has become known for signature side dishes such as Shrimp Rice Krispies, Foie Gras French Toast, Lil’ Big Macs, Sweet Corn Pudding and Parmesan Truffle Fries.
“Las Vegas was the perfect next step for STK,” says Jonathan Segal, CEO of The ONE Group. “Our concept is a lively steakhouse that intertwines great music, delicious food and cocktails, style, fashion and a sexy energy. It provides both the ‘sizzle and the steak’ which we all know is decidedly Las Vegas.”
Original concept created by ICRAVE Studios (Koi, Asellina, Hyde and One), STK gracefully blends two concepts into one – the modern steakhouse with a chic lounge. STK Las Vegas uses natural materials to contrast the resort’s chic urban feel. A large central lounge furnished with creamy leather banquettes and textured crocodile tiles is surrounded by an elevated dining room for more formal dining. Theatrical lights illuminate each table, and smoky mirrors allow patrons to catch a glimpse of the surroundings while a DJ creates an energetic vibe throughout the entire space. This location is the first to incorporate a gold hue to the traditional STK color palatte.
The cocktail program at STK integrates unique interpretations of classics, offering signatures creations such as the Not Your Daddy’s Manhattan with Woodford Reserve Bourbon, Liquor 43, sweet and dry vermouth, as well as creative libations like the Strawberry Rhubarb Cobbler with rhubarb infused Finlandia Vodka, muddled fresh strawberries, and a graham cracker crusted rim.
STK Las Vegas is open seven days a week, Sunday through Wednesday, 5 p.m. – 12 a.m., Thursday from 5 p.m. to 1 a.m. and Friday and Saturday from 5 p.m. to 2 a.m. STK Las Vegas is located in The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, 3708 Las Vegas Boulevard South.
