It's hard to imagine a better place to party on the weekends than a steakhouse in Las Vegas.

Using Josper ovens, rotisseries, and Mibrasa wood-fire grills, Lorena Garcia achieves her live-fire dreams at Chica. On a recent Saturday night, she served a tomahawk steak cooked in a Josper over Brazilian oak and charcoal. She stirred queso fundido with housemade salsa and Oaxaca cheese in a molcajete. She gave us tortillas and invited us to make quesadillas. Guests are dancing to live music as servers greet them with "Welcome to Chica, a Latin steakhouse."

In the ultimate Vegas steakhouse spectacle, our tomahawk is sliced, engulfed in flames, and surrounded by colorful peppers.

Recently renovated Chica steakhouse in Las Vegas is part of a meaty movement. The concept of eating steakhouses on and off the Strip is being reinvented by great chefs. Think hot seafood towers, Wagyu cheesesteak bites, and even a smoke show before swish steak in a hot pot.

Check out these four new steakhouses in Vegas.

As part of the new live-fire kitchen at Chica, the Venetian resort serves cowboy steaks and parrilladas including skirt steaks, tenderloins, pinchos, lamb, chorizo, and chicken. Live music and DJs are played at Chica Nights on the weekends, encouraging revelry. As part of the Latin steakhouse's menu, you can order a watercress Caesar salad, Nikkei tuna tartare, Peruvian octopus roasted in the oven, a mushroom barbacoa, a Wagyu empanada, street corn roasted, and papas bravas. There is also a tres leches cake and a churro bouquet for dessert. An old-school steakhouse baked Alaska, topped with warm lava cake, horchata ice cream, fruit, and corn marshmallows, seems much less festive and memorable than a flaming skull.

Making a quesadilla and eating it with your hands are the best ways to approach food.

It's more than 11 miles away from Las Vegas Boulevard but has the same energy as the most bustling Strip restaurants thanks to chef Gina Marinelli's classically elegant, yet completely modern steakhouse. Harlo stands out with its over-the-top interpretations of steakhouse fare in Downtown Summerlin, a new-school shopping, dining, entertainment and events center development.

With the distinctive flavors of smoked chili butter and charred lemon, a fire-roasted seafood tower features lobster, king crab, bay scallops, prawns, mussels, clams and more. If you'd like to soak up the flavor of this show-stopping seafood presentation, you'll need to dip the toasted baguette in the spicy, briny liquid.

A caviar cannoli, a caviar deviled egg, and a caviar taco are available in Marinelli's playful and creative approach to luxury. There are spiced crisps, gnocco frittos, and potato latkes in addition to caviar service, as well as wedge salads with house-smoked pastrami and Caesar salads with anchovy croutons. It is possible to serve lobster tails, king crabs, grilled tiger prawns, rib eye cap steaks from Snake River Farms, Flannery Beef bistecca alla fiorentina, and Icon Wagyu New York strips as part of a surf-and-turf extravaganza. There are four different chocolate preparations in Harry's Berries strawberry cheesecake and Harlo chocolate dream to finish the meal.

The best new steakhouse on the Strip has been opened by Sean Christie at Resorts World Las Vegas. Daniel Ontiveros serves Maine lobster en croûte plated and sauced at the table at Carversteak, demonstrating fine-dining finesse. You'll want to break up the puff pastry with lobster-Cognac cream and eat it.

Bringing another tableside show to life, Francesco Lafranconi brings you a Martini cart that shakes, stirs, and rolls drinks right before your eyes. From Vespers to dry Martinis, every drink is perfectly balanced and perfectly prepared.

Ontiveros makes appetizer-size Wagyu sandwiches with aged provolone mornay, Japanese Wagyu, Australian Wagyu, and Australian Wagyu. The restaurant also offers Dry-Aged Flannery Beef, Japanese Wagyu, Australian Wagyu, and Australian Wagyu. Mac-and-cheese gratin with aged cheddar is a great side dish. To finish, you can get a Cookie Monster with three oversized cookies that will bring joy to children. Ice cream sundaes topped with macarons, sparklers, and sauce served at the table will make the Vegas Strip come alive.

The X Pot

Las Vegas' X Pot serves top-tier hot pot with top-tier Korean barbecue, just as Cote in New York and Miami does

Located in the Grand Canal Shoppes at the Venetian resort, this restaurant and nightlife destination serves A5 Miyazaki-Gyu Wagyu. In addition to rib eye caps in hot pot broth, you can also eat filet mignon nigiri and short rib cubes grilled on a Hemalayan salt block at this restaurant. A bronze cow and tableside smoke at XS are Vegas excess, and it's a fun alternative to popping bottles. Even more excess can be had with dancing-noodle shows and immersive backgrounds in private rooms.

With their Wagyu hot pot, Wagyu dumplings, sashimi, sushi and truffle macaroni, Wagyu katsu, skewers, gyoza, and sukiyaki, the X Pot is the perfect place to enjoy a good night out.
