Oscar’s Steakhouse features perfectly aged steaks cooked over a 600 degree grill. Flavorful, tender and juicy, the beef at Oscar’s is cooked to perfection and is accompanied by high-quality, made-from-scratch sides. The restaurant’s entrées and appetizers are inspired by family recipes and tailored to meet the tastes of even the most discerning diners. And of course, Oscar’s offers a wide variety of delicious, hand-crafted cocktails.
In addition to great food, Oscar’s Beef · Booze · Broads pairs a great meal with the unique opportunity to have one of Oscar’s “Broads” visit with customers during dinner. These attractive women are reminiscent of the iconic showgirls who accompanied the former mayor to events during his tenure. However, instead of being showgirls, these women will be dinner companions who can discuss Las Vegas history or things to do downtown or on the Strip. When not mingling with customers, they stroll through the restaurant as hostesses, adding to the glamorous and uniquely Vegas style of Oscar’s.
Former Mayor Oscar B. Goodman
Known best as the “Happiest Mayor in the Universe,” Oscar Goodman served three terms as mayor of the city of Las Vegas. In April of 2007, he captured 84 percent of the vote in his re-election effort to a third four-year term. During his tenure as mayor, he had many accomplishments in the heart of downtown. They include Symphony Park, a phenomenal 61- acre planned development which includes the Lou Ruvo Brain Institute, designed by renowned architect Frank Gehry. The park also includes the Smith Center, a 350,000-square-foot performing arts center, as well as plans for boutique hotels, high-rise residential units, business, medical and retail opportunities. At the conclusion of his last term in 2011, he did what no other mayor has ever done in the country: swear in his wife, Carolyn Goodman, as the new mayor of Las Vegas.
After his tenure as mayor, Goodman has remained active in the Las Vegas community. He continues to serve as Las Vegas’ primary ambassador as chairman of the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA) Host Committee which is made up of local business and civic leaders who engage the Las Vegas community in support of major trade shows and destination events. Goodman also assists in rolling out the “red carpet” to welcome attendees of special events and meetings and conventions to Las Vegas.
Chef Jeffrey Martell C.E.C.
At 16, Chef Jeffrey Martell took a job in a local seafood restaurant in New Jersey, looking for some extra spending money. Instead, he fell in love and found his passion for food. He followed that passion all over the United States and built a career based on attention to detail, creativity and excellence in execution.
Martell attended the Academy of Culinary Arts in Mays Landing, New Jersey. After completing his culinary education, he worked for a restaurant company, refining his style and expanding his approach in restaurants throughout the country, including at Nick’s Fishmarket in Chicago, Nick’s inside the five-diamond, five-star Rittenhouse Hotel in Philadelphia, and Sarentos on the Beach at the Boca Raton Resort and Club.
He then moved to Las Vegas, where he helped open the Resort at Summerlin (later renamed the JW Marriott Las Vegas Resort & Spa and Rampart Casino) as the Executive Sous Chef for the steakhouse. From there, he moved to the Orleans Casino, where he worked with former Chefs of the Year Christopher Johns and Larry Chumley.
After meeting his wife, Martell relocated to Florida for three years, serving as Executive Chef of the Pilot House in Key Largo. He and his wife then came back to Las Vegas, and he served as Assistant Executive Chef at the Excalibur Hotel and Casino. He also began teaching at a local culinary school and became an active supporter and board member of Chefs for Kids, an organization helping the at-risk children of Southern Nevada. Martell’s work with Chefs for Kids as well as with various diversity initiatives and employee events at Excalibur earned him the recognition as a finalist for Volunteer of the Year for MGM Resorts International. Most recently, Martell was recognized as the American Culinary Federation (ACF) Las Vegas Chef of the Year for 2011.
Chef Martell brings his renowned culinary experience and community commitment to Oscar’s Beef · Booze · Broads where he prepares some of Oscar Goodman’s favorite recipes and the best steaks in Downtown Las Vegas.
