We still don't know what it will be called, but today we have a better idea of when to expect the new and improved Bill's, for lack of a better name.
VegasChatter friend Paige C. was watching The View earlier today when an appearance by Giada De Laurentiis -- who will helm the forthcoming boutique hotel's celebrity restaurant -- caught her attention. The Food Network personality talked up her Vegas venture... and then mentioned when it would arrive!

The Quad's website still heralds it as coming soon in late 2013, but we don't need a trip to
Flavor Town The Strip to tell you that Guy Fieri's forthcoming restaurant is another Vegas delay in the works.
Also still in the works? Its name. There have been reports that say it's Guy's American Kitchen like his NYC outpost, but a Caesars rep confirmed to us there is no official name yet. They hope, however, to announce one next month.

A couple years ago, this writer was staying at the Palazzo and noticed a sign for a special at Morels French Steakhouse on the elevator TV screen. Later, I found out that it was $40 for a full dinner, which included salad, NY Strip, mashed potatoes and creme brulee. I added some wine and charcuterie to the meal and it was delicious.
Even though the steak was a smaller cut than what was offered on the menu (12 ounce vs. 16 ounce), this was still a bargain as a full-sized NY Strip was $50 on the menu. When adding the salad and dessert this was a small savings and a great excuse to try an often overlooked steakhouse near the entrance of Palazzo.

When visiting El Cortez, itís important to remember where you are and manage your expectations. El Cortez is one of the most historic casinos in Vegas and may have been the casino that truly started the Downtown Vegas revival when it was renovated seven years ago. With all of the more recent renovations, though, the ones at El Cortez feel more vintage than they were intended. Aesthetically, El Cortez is a mid-level Downtown Vegas casino. Still, we love El Cortez.
Besides some of the best gaming odds in any Las Vegas casino, El Cortez also has some of the most random and cool casino promotions. Personally, this writer learned how to gamble at El Cortez and it holds a special place in my heart. For months, Iíve noticed that El Cortez had a $5 beer and burger special available at Cafe Cortez. With all of the new restaurants coming on board in Downtown Vegas, I've been a little too distracted to try it, but finally had the opportunity to dive in recently.

The dining spot, which replaces Nobhill Tavern at the resort, has been hosting the invite only crowd in recent days, but will officially welcome everyone starting tomorrow, December 4 at 11:30 a.m. You can make reservations now, though, via OpenTable.

Remember the last time you dined at Mandalay Bay's food court? We're getting a blank stare, aren't we? In fact, some of you are probably thinking, "Mandalay Bay has a food court?"
Located next to Shark Reef Aquarium and fronting some of the resort's convention space, Mandalay Bay's food court has been uninspiring and, let's face it, unappetizing, for some time now. But, our interest was perked when the space was shutdown for remodeling earlier this year and Fifth Avenue Restaurant Group (responsible for the new food court at Bally's and the revamp at Luxor, among others) took the helm.

If all goes as planned, we should start to see portions of The Linq debut this month, including the return of O'Sheas by New Year's Eve. And, while we know a good deal of the brands to come (the latest accounting is below), there are still spaces that are TBA. Today, however, there is one less.

There's already one on Las Vegas Boulevard, but far from the action. However, if Chili's gets its way, its new locale could be center Strip.

If you've been yearning for a new place to get a burger in Vegas, your time is now.
After being the first to tell you about the coming of Ketchup Premium Burger Bar to Miracle Mile at Planet Hollywood back in August, we can now be the first to tell you that it's officially open. Yes, it's a riveting exclusive first look, for sure.

After a once anticipated debut of spring, the Downtown Container Park has instead arrived in time for the holiday shopping season. Well, at least some of it.
The flyer below proclaims all the shops and eateries expected to open today at 1 p.m. PST, but even this list was a bit too hopeful.

Vegas Observations / Treasure Island / TI / Kahunaville / Restaurants / Dining / Eating / Drinking / → All Tags
When we last checked in at TI, we found that the party seemed to be missing at party bar Kahunaville. The lack of crowds, paired with the barrage of offers for discounted frozen drinks, suggested to us that the 13-year-old restaurant and flair bar may be on its way out. Weíve since heard from the owners, who insist that Kahunaville is here to stay.
Kahunaville suggests that its Island-style casual atmosphere is lacking elsewhere on The Strip. The island theme may be unique (assuming you've never made it over to Margaritaville), but other party bars like Rockhouse and Carnaval Court, both just across the street, arenít exactly upscale. On competing with Senor Frogís, TIís new and similarly themed party restaurant, Kahunaville chooses to focus on the increased traffic moving through the doors. If guests at TI are, indeed, doing some in-house bar-hopping, then the arrangement may be mutually beneficial.
