Tasting a bit of Vegas has never been so thrilling
Many of our locals and tourists alike find the history and legacy of Vegas thrilling and part of the charm of Sin City. For those who may not be as familiar with the namesake of this iconic steakhouse in Downtown Las Vegas at the Plaza Hotel & Casino, let us indulge you.
Oscar Goodman served as the “Happiest Mayor in the Universe” for Las Vegas from 1999 to 2011. However it’s his former career that has audiences captivated. In his career as a defense attorney, he represented defendants accused of being some of the leading organized crime figures in Vegas. To get in touch with that side of Goodman just watch the 1995 movie Casino which portrayed a couple of his former clients and in which he has a cameo appearance.
Fast forward to present day and Goodman is now the namesake behind the Oscar’s Beef-Booze-Broads steakhouse. Be sure to checkout the photo montage of his careers as you saunter into the lounge and restaurant. Now sit back and enjoy the libations and just imagine what it must have been like and order like he would.
