Foodies! There’s a new spot opening in Henderson this weekend that will feature dry-aged beef, chicken, pork, fish, and even vegan options as well.
According to an article posted by Janna Karel on Vegas.Eater.com, chef and owner Matthew Meyer will be opening 138° at the same location as his previous restaurant, Served Global Dining. Opening night is this Saturday, October 15th, serving dinner from 5pm-10pm. Brunch service will begin the following Saturday, October 22nd, with lunch service soon after that.
Per Karel’s article, the chef has instituted an in-house dry aging process for beef sourced from Nevada ranchers and other local producers. Protein-based menu items will be cooked on a woodfire grill.
The 138restaurant website does not show too much as of yet, except for their logo and this tagline: “Craft Steaks. Killer Burgers. Bourbon + Brunch.” The posting on Vegas.Eater.com does show photos of some of the featured menu items for the new eatery, which will be located at 1450 W. Horizon Ridge Parkway, Suite C-205 in Henderson.
Meyer explains that the restaurant’s in-house dry-aging process will condense the flavors in the proteins on the menu because it removes most of the moisture. Karel’s article quotes him as saying: “Over time, bacteria and enzymes in the meat break down and you get different flavors that can be nutty, or like truffle, blue cheese, and buttery popcorn.”
Some of the featured menu items include shrimp and grits, chilled lobster borscht, seed-crusted lamb loin, and a house burger made with brie and an A-1 style steak sauce. Bon appetit!
