About ENVY The Steakhouse While the term “steakhouse” conjures images of a staid and dimly lit men’s club, ENVY’s sleek, open design boldly announces a new paradigm. Pat Murphy’s design for the restaurant is a study in balance: expansive windows and high ceilings create a lofty sense of space, while elements such as a candle-lit, walk-in wine cellar and a 1,500-bottle wine wall, impart warmth and structure. Guests can choose from an extensive hand-selected Las Vegas restaurant wine list as they nestle in one of ENVY’s spacious, welcoming booths. VIP guests can enjoy a chef’s table in a private booth with a front row view of the open kitchen.
