No, nothing bad is happening to you here.
That’s simply the only way to reach your Wagyu filet.
It’s like you’ve died and gone to meat heaven at MB Steak, a sexy new double-decker steakhouse from David and Michael Morton, open now at the Hard Rock, looking all like this.
Once you make it through the 30-foot tunnel at the casino’s rear, you’ll enter a dining room with charred wood walls and moody lighting.
If it’s a celebratory dinner date you’re having, you might linger there, sharing caviar sliders, a bottle of Syrah and a dry-aged tomahawk steak before calling it a night. A lovely, potentially food-coma-inducing night.
But if it’s something more, say, a friend’s bachelor/ette party, head upstairs to the lounge, where a giant skylight adorned with hanging plants and shelves of beckoning booze will present itself.
Hang out. Grab a champagne-spiked mojito. Split a shellfish platter. And then proceed to ball out with a Japanese Wagyu steak or 32oz pepper-crusted bone-in short rib.
One of those should buy you a minute or two come speech time.
