Exclusive: Tom Colicchio's Heritage Steak Interior Details

Tom Colicchio's Heritage Steak at The Mirage is 2013's most anticipated restaurant opening in Las Vegas and we've got some exclusive details on what to expect from the interior of the restaurant.

The word heritage implies history, and the interior design harkens towards an earlier time of common materials assembled perfectly, highlighting the craftsmanship of the builders. This, in essence, is Chef Colicchio's aesthetic. Simple ingredients, prepared to perfection with extreme Craft.

Tom Colicchio's Heritage Steak will retain the open air concept under Mirage's atrium, with louvered wood trellises mounted on blackened steel frames providing cover and lighting over portions of the restaurant.

The exterior of the restaurant will be a done in rectangular aged leather panels, with french stitched seams arranged in horizontal brick pattern. The bar area will feature the same leather panels, arranged like shingles with led backlights accenting the stitching and grain of the leather. Other portions of the restaurant will feature glass wall cases filled from floor to ceiling with split walnut logs, also back lit for effect.

The entrance, located on the casino side of the atrium bridge, spills out into a grooved concrete floor lounge area with a bar lining the wall adjacent to Japonais. Blackened steel will be prominent throughout the restaurant - as column support, banquette legs, drink shelves, doorways and fixtures. The overall color of the property will be leathery browns, coppers and and bronze.

The dining room is split into three sections - two for main dining and one private dining room. Each section is covered in its own trellis. The entire dining room is surrounded by rough hewn cedar planks and finished with walnut clapboard flooring. The main dining room features two seating areas framed by walnut banquettes. The main dining room has seven four top tables, two semi circular booths, three two top floating tables and thirty four two top tables in the banquettes which can be easily configured for larger groups.

A private dining room accessible by a bronzed glass door, contains four eight top tables and is surrounded on two sides by a tempered glass enclosed wine vault. A large flat panel display is sunken into the south wall. The private dining room contains an interior curtain to block out all looky loos.

Overlooking the entire dining room is a 25x15 foot long open exhibition kitchen, wherein guests can watch chefs prepare their food before it heads to their table. Get ready for Top Chef Vegas II.

Kokomos bar should remain as is.

Exciting! Here's a diagram.

Comments & Discussion:

Interesting. The nice thing about the passage through the atrium is the stop and flow nature of people meandering, looking at the waterfalls and plants, and taking pictures. One of the things I like most about the Mirage. Hopefully this won't tear up that feel too much.

Oh hey, more of the atrium gardens being ripped apart for another bar and a more appealing entrance. I'm going to have to see it, but my initial reaction is "ew, gross."

Too bad you don't have any details...:)

Love it. Can't wait to see what the rest of the casino remodel looks like.

I'm with blackjacker in that I really hope this doesn't screw up the aesthetics of the iconic atrium. I still don't understand why the Japonais lounge isn't open up on all sides of the rainforest. Maybe Murren thinks diners don't want to be bothers by a theme.

Great info although is this restaurant really all that anticipated? Sounds like another bloated, ridiculously overpriced, celebrity chef tourist trap. As a local, upcoming projects from the Jordans and Jet Tila are far more intriguing than a joint I'll hit once, when I abuse someone's expense account, and then probably complain afterwards.
