Voodoo Steak at the Rio

We first met Chef Honorio Mecinas when he teamed up with his brother Chef Mel Mecinas, Executive Chef at the Four Seasons in Scottsdale, for a special event. On our next trip to Las Vegas, reservations at Voodoo Steak, where he is Chef de Cuisine, were a must. Since that very first visit, we've returned again and again. We've taken close friends, treated my parents, and hosted a fantastic wedding dinner for my stepdaughter and son-in-law, and had great service, and wine pairings from Sam.  On our most recent visit last week, we were a group of 8, including my best friends from Massachusetts, and everyone raved. Voodoo Steak and Chef Honorio never disappoint.
