The Venetian Hotel Resort Casino, the Italian-inspired resort that opened on the Vegas Strip in May 1999, made a name for itself by combining world-class dining with upscale shopping, spa services and luxurious accommodations within one seamlessly integrated property. And while this destination hotel has a uniquely Mediterranean quality to it, it's home for many diverse fine-dining establishments, including one—Delmonico Steakhouse—with a decidedly New Orleans feel to it. Deep off the hotel's main lobby, Delmonico stands out amid the sea of Italian art and atmosphere for which The Venetian is known. Upon approaching it, you'll notice almost immediately its white awning and its glass doors, emblazoned with a signature D. If you choose to peek in through the glass doors, you'll be peeking into the lounge area, which houses the bar and a flat screen TV for diners who can't miss their favorite program. If you're not the peeking type, maybe you're the entering type; walk directly through the dark, inviting wooden doors to enter the lounge and, ultimately, the restaurant.
