Just about every major casino maintains a steakhouse, along with an Italian or Asian restaurant, a buffet and a 24-hour cafe.
The Red Hawk Casino is no exception. Its centerpiece is the award-winning, high-end Henry's, specializing in steaks and chops. On the over-the-top sider of the menu is a 48-ounce porterhouse for two, $76, carved at tableside.
For those who want less freight (and weight), Henry's is now serving lunch on weekends, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. The emphasis is on soups, salads and sandwiches ($6 to $20), and the menu looks good.
For instance, pork tenderloin on rosemary focaccia with sage aioli, rare prime roast beef french tip on sourdough with horseradish cream, and Maine lobster roll with tarragon mayo on a soft roll.
Red Hawk is off Highway 50 at 1 Red Hawk Parkway outside of Placerville. More information: (888) 573-3495, www.redhawkcasino.com.
