Neros, the famed steakhouse in Caesars Windsor, is taking socializing over food to a new, elevated level. In fact, it has created a new social dining area, where guests can gather and socialize in what it calls a new sophisticated lounge.
To create this new level of contemporary ambiance, the restaurant actually elevated the floor of a section of the lobby of Neros Steakhouse putting it on the same level as the steakhouse’s bar.
In officially opening the new amenity, Joseph Moore, the casino’s food and beverage director, called the result “dining with flair,” in an area where guests can expect fresh food delivered fast. One of the goals of the new social dining room is to use local materials. Windsor’s Guaranteed A Fine Furniture was tasked with finding just the right tables and related accessories, picking from Ontario craft furniture makers.
Moore also talked of the growing trend to offer patrons both formal and social dining is a growing trend in the restaurant and hospitality industry. But, make no mistake the food being served is well-representive of the standard set by Neros. It is also very diverse with selections from all over the world.
Executive Chef, Patrick McClary, told Eyes on Windsor the new menu did generate a few contrary comments particularly some saying they didn’t like all the items on offer.
But that, McClary says, was really the point. The plan is to give the casino’s guests considerable variety. “If there are things I would not eat,” he suggests, “I could share with others.”
Another aspect of the menu is a lack of seasonal items. McClary says the days of having only some foods at certain times of the year have largely disappeared. Now with globalization of the food industry, popular items can be sourced year-round.
Items on the social dining room’s menu are indeed varied, ranging from Szechuan Asia Duck Drumetters, Bison Tenderloin Kabob to Lumpia, Charred Octopus, Bruschetta and Heirloom Tomato Carpaccio, to name a few of the choices.
The social dining area is now open for business.
