Tom Colicchio’s Heritage Steak Nears Debut at The Mirage

“Top Chef” judge Tom Colicchio’s new restaurant at The Mirage, Heritage Steak, has lost its construction wall but is gaining momentum as it nears its opening date, Aug. 19, 2013.

Buzz has been solid about this new offering, and we popped by for a pic of the newly-revealed exterior of the restaurant’s lounge area.

Now, we get to judge.

Heritage Steak has been fully integrated into the lush atrium area at The Mirage. The restaurant and lounge wrap around waterfalls sure to make dining at the new restaurant a soothing experience.

This is where the lines will be.

Chef Colicchio has tapped Anthony Zappola as executive chef at Heritage Steak. Read more at Las Vegas Weekly.

Steaks will be cooked over open flame and the “glow of the hearth will be infused in the restaurant’s design.” Oh, we’re big fans of infusing.

When you stop in to check out Tom Colicchio’s new Vegas digs, don’t miss out on your 15 minutes of fame. In the hotel’s lobby area, you’ll find a large video wall featuring Tweets of those who mention The Mirage or the #MirageLobbyTalk hashtag. A few minutes after your Tweet, your message will appear for all to see.

We assume this only works for clean Tweets, but worth a try.

Thanks to tipster Russ Morgan of the Five Hundy By Midnight podcast Facebook group for giving us the heads up about the construction wall being down at Heritage Steak.

Delicious things to come!
