New Afternoon Treats and Drinks at Steak 954

If you haven't wandered past the mesmerizing glow of jellyfish gracing the entrance of Steak 954 because you're put off by the $48 price tag for a rib eye, you can now sample some of chef Stephen Starr's creations for a whole lot less.

The flagship restaurant at the trendy W Hotel recently launched a sunset menu featuring relatively affordable bar bites and sunset-themed cocktails, including

the paradoxically named Sunrise made with rum, passion fruit, pineapple,

and sage. Other inspired drinks include the Laguna with rum, lemongrass

sake, coconut milk, and pineapple juice, as well as the Cortez, mixed

with riesling, acai, and kiwi. Thirsty yet?

Sample a few of the delectable snacks and find out why our restaurant

critic swooned after tasting the dry-aged sliders with aged cheddar

cheese, recounting, "A slider is not just a slider: It's Kobe beef

topped with the sweetest caramelized onions and sandwiched between

rounds of buttery brioche."

There are also big-eye tuna tacos

with avocado salad and chipotle aioli ($10 and pictured above), salt cod

fritters with a citrus aioli ($10), a mini-BLT ($9), and a smoked trout

salad ($9). A raw bar offers East and West Coast oysters with a yuzu

cocktail sauce ($15), a local snapper tiradito ($12), and lobster and

crab coconut ceviche with jalapeño ($14). The new sunset menu runs daily

from 2:30 to 5:30 p.m., a time when the restaurant was previously

closed. Steak 954 also serves lunch, dinner, and weekend brunch.
