Oscar Goodman opening Steakhouse at Plaza

The newly remodeled Plaza hotel downtown on Fremont Street has announced yet another new restaurant, as former Mayor Oscar Goodman will be opening Oscar's later this fall.

The steakhouse will have a Las Vegas theme, featuring classic Vegas photographs and Goodman's personal memorabilia from his 12 year run as mayor.

In addition to the steakhouse, the area will also feature an Italian restaurant and "speakeasy." There will also be a new cocktail bar and lounge that will serve customers of both restaurants.

Oscar's will be located inside the dome of the Plaza overlooking Fremont Street.

The space was formerly occupied by Firefly - a tapas restaurant which closed late last year. Many people were hoping that Firefly would return once the hotel renovations were complete, but the Plaza owners were reportedly unhappy with the restaurant's performance.

I'm not sure how badly Las Vegas needs another steakhouse, but with Oscar Goodman's name attached to it I'm sure it will do well. I do like the classic Las Vegas theme, so it might be worth a visit to check out some of the photos and memorabilia.
