It’s a new steak, named after the old steak, but it’s still a new steak.
At the Santa Fe station in northwest Vegas, a newly designed steakhouse will be formed on the west side of the property. It will be called The Charcoal Room, which is the name of the current steakhouse, which will remain open while the variant is being built.

No word, though, on the opening schedule.
This is grass news. There is also news of waves coming from Santa Fe station. The Oyster Bar is currently undergoing a renovation. While its mussels are getting a makeover, folks can take advantage of oysters, clams, gumbos, pan roasts, and cioppinos on the terrace of the adjacent Brass Fork.
