Vegas Dining News: Rare 120 Steakhouse, Puck’s Carrot Cake, Brand’s Steak Deal

The Hard Rock Hotel has begun hiring at top levels for a new restaurant that will open this spring as part of the resort’s multi-million renovations. Called Rare 120, it’s the newest concept from The Dolce Group, known for L.A. hotspots like Geisha House and Ketchup.

In the press release, TDG describes it as a “new breed of steakhouse where the food is as important as the atmosphere.” Well, for the amount of money I’m expecting they’ll charge for a steak, it had better be more important, so let’s see what they can deliver.

Wolfgang Puck has introduced a new dessert at three of his Vegas restaurants that sounds particularly yummy.

It’s a 15-Layer Carrot Cake which, as the name suggests, consists of fifteen alternating layers of cake and cream cheese filling. The cake is then adorned with candied walnuts and served with a ginger ice cream, which is said to complement the spices in the cake.

The seasonal dessert was created by Director of Pastry Kenny Magana and is priced at $12. It’s available at Wolfgang Puck’s Chinois and Spago, both located inside The Forum Shops at Caesars, as well as at the Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill at MGM Grand.
