B eyond Sunset Station's bowl- ing alley and movie theater lies a surprising gem of a restaurant you'll be happy you found. Fresh o a remodel, Sonoma Cellar Steakhouse whisks you away from the casino into wine country—the kind of restaurant appropriate for both the entire family and the person you want to impress most. Station Casi- nos swapped out the dark, cave-like features of the old version, opening up the dining room with pristine-white walls and a more spacious design with ample seating. Kick things o with a classic martini (Absolut Elyx, Ransom dry vermouth and Regan's orange bitters) or a taste from the whiskey and Scotch library, which includes Old Rip Van Winkle and Macallan Rare Cask and Re ex- ion. Pair your cocktail of choice with jumbo bacon-wrapped shrimp topped with crispy fried onions and served with a dijon-marmalade dipping sauce before moving on to smoked pork belly with bourbon maple, southern- style grits and rainbow chard. Pork belly also gures into the refreshing steakhouse chopped salad. For dinner, the delicious Alaskan red king crab legs are conveniently cracked open and ready to eat, so tender and sweet you won't even need the drawn butter (though that makes it even better). The bone-in ribeye is Sonoma's house specialty—a 20-ounce steak marinat- ed with tomato, garlic, cilantro and other spices and served with a savory garlic-cilantro sauce. Load it up with a side of mushrooms and Hasselback potatoes and you've got a meal t for royalty. Sonoma Cellar Steakhouse at Sunset Station, 702-547-7777; daily 5-10 p.m. –Leslie Ventura R E D I S C O V E R T H E R E N O V A T E D S O N O M A C E L L A R F R E S H E S C A P E n i g h t b i t e s I N D U S T R Y W E E K L Y | S E P T E M B E R 7 - 1 3 , 2 0 1 7
