The Hard Rock has struggled with steakhouses since its original meaterie, AJ’s Steakhouse, closed in 2009. The short-lived Rare 120 quickly flamed out, but the outlook is much better for 35 Steaks (partly named for Elvis’s birth year, 1935). Following in AJ’s footsteps is no easy task, but since opening in 2011, 35 Steaks is hitting all the right notes. There are plenty of steaks, naturally, and other tasty options including chicken or sea bass, but save room for the ‘King’ of desserts—caramelized bananas and peanut-butter ice cream (bacon optional).
