Forget ordering sides at steakhouses. Thanks to the growing number of Las Vegas steakhouses with vegan menus, it’s entirely possible for a group of vegans and non-vegans to break bread together at quite a few of them. If you’re at The Palms and want to try out an upscale, sleek dining experience check out Scotch 80 Prime which comes complete with a vegan menu. It’s another vegan option at The Palms, and we’re stoked to have it.
Order yourself their signature Old Fashioned (hold the cherry) and settle in to a fine dining steakhouse experience at Scotch 80 Prime.
There are a handful of vegan options at Scotch 80 Prime to check out. Start your meal with either a chilled white asparagus gazpacho with toasted almonds, cucumbers and grapes or dig into an heirloom tomato salad with Fuji apples and frisée drizzled with an aged balsamic vinegar.
For your main course, there are a choice of two entrees. We are head over heels for the Mesquite grilled Abalone mushroom steak that comes topped with baby leeks, mushroom glaceé and black truffles (it’s those black truffles that rope us in. Seriously. The world would be a better place if everyone went vegan and if every dish had some version of black truffles in it). There’s also a cauliflower steak which is pretty typical of steakhouse offerings across the board in Las Vegas … so if you aren’t opposed to mushrooms, that’s the money dish.
Of course, what’s a steakhouse without a variety of vegan side dishes. At Scotch 80 Prime, they’ve got Heirloom Pee Wee potatoes. These lil’ babes come cooked in EVOO and topped with garlic confit and finé herbs. Other vegan sides at Scotch 80 Prime are wood charred corn in a sherry lime vinaigrette with cilantro and Fresno peppers, as well as grilled green asparagus.
Wrap up your meal with a selection of sorbets (just remind them you’re vegan so they don’t include the tuile).
