Founded by chef and restaurateur Brad Wise, Trust Restaurant Group’s vintage steakhouse concept Rare Society has five locations operating on the West Coast, and now it’s looking to open its sixth in Las Vegas. Permitting paperwork was submitted recently to Clark County showing Rare Society opening at 6880 Helen Toland St, #100, located in the southwest area’s popular mixed-use development Uncommons Las Vegas.
“Keeping alive the echoes of vintage upscale dining, Chef Wise has reshuffled the deck to infuse a touch of modernity into the concept adding a wood-fired grill for meats, an on-premise dry ager, a progressive cocktail program and sustainably-sourced seafood,” says the Rare Society website’s Our Story page. “Each location, which now includes four in California and one in Washington, boasts the [sights] and smells of premium cuts grilled over American red oak [to] invoke the lore of Rat Pack gatherings and raucous Sinatra dinner parties.”
What Now confirmed the news with Brad Wise on Thursday. Wise declined to share details about the Las Vegas location at this time, however. What Now is awaiting further information.
The Santa Barbara location’s dinner menu opens with a Raw Bar featuring Oysters on the Half Shell, Ahi Tuna Tartare, Chilled Maine Lobster, and more. Starters include a Wood Grilled Whole Maine Lobster, a Wood Grilled Lamb Lollipop, and Dungeness Crab Cake. Under “Proteins” we find custs like the 10-oz. Sanke River Farms Wagyu Tri-Tip, the 20-oz. 40 Day Dry-Aged Bone-In NY Strip, and the 15-oz Pork Tomahawk.
No word is available on the particulars of the Uncommons Las Vegas location’s menu.
