In its dazzling contemporary setting among the bold iconic canvases of George Rodrigue’s Blue Dog, Besh Steak is not your traditional steakhouse. 150 rich brown leather seats, some in private curtained booths, are set among crystal puddles of azure blue. A sleek, backlit wall of wine bottles is flanked by a glowing amber bar and an open brushed-silver kitchen. High-rolling guests and food critics alike will be swept away with the cool dining grandeur at Besh Steak in Harrah's New Orleans. Please note that you and your party must be 21 years or older to enter.

The restaurant melds Chef John Besh's devotion to local Louisiana ingredients and techniques with traditional steakhouse menu items. Wine and spirits are also an integral part of the dining experience at Besh Steak, with hand-selected cellar choices to accompany each dish.

We had reservations and our booth was nice and cozy. Our waitress was Trisha and her manners were very rough around the edges which is not what you would expect for a fine dining place.

One of the worst Steakhouses I've ever eating. Makes me consider being a Vegetarian! It's ashamed that it's in the same clip complex as Ruth's Chris Steakhouse. We will never go back to Besh's. I'm surprised he would allow his name to be associated with that place.

A smoke-free Casino!!! The hotel is real southern charm. Exceptionally friendly people- always a smile and a greeting when you enter and leave. the casino is clean, friendly and inviting. The buffet was reasonably priced and many many choices- leave room for great desserts. Uncharacteristically sour note is the assistant manager of Besh- the steak house inside the casino. Heather...

The shrimp etouffee "pie" and barbequed shrimp were the highlight of the dinner. It was otherwise, a regular steakhouse. My steak was wonderful, but not fabulous. It was still a great, just probably not as exceptional as other places in NOLA.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title might suggest that this area is all about business and little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you away from the Central Business District. The CBD offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts District and Tremé, with the river at its eastern extreme, this hub for sports, gaming, shopping, theatre, family-friendly activities, and amazing regional cuisine makes a smart base wherever your interests lie.
