Late last year, we heard a rumor the Peppermill was up for sale, but the restaurant refuted those claims. Well, it turns out the Peppermill has a new ownership structure, but it'll continue to be business as usual for years.. upon years.. upon years.

Chef Kerry Simon is closing the doors at two of his Las Vegas restaurants this spring. Simon has been battling debilitating Multiple System Atrophy (MSA). The incurable disease has rendered Simon unable to speak or eat normally and has confined him to a wheelchair.
As their leases expire this spring, Simon Restaurant and Lounge at Palms Place and KGB (Kerry’s Gourmet Burgers) at Harrah’s will close. Simon’s other restaurants in Palm Springs, Chicago, Los Angeles and the Dominican Republic plus Carson Kitchen in downtown Las Vegas will remain open.

The culture of dining in Vegas is mercurial. A trend in restaurants can come and go with a quarterly budget, but sometimes there are upsets that have been brewing underneath the surface, breaking through the zeitgeist and shifting the impetus of future new restaurants. In shorter words, a game changer. That is what BARDOT is.
Many months ago, it seemed a puzzling news item that Michael Mina would re-brand an already running fish restaurant into a French concept at Aria. Then, the doors flung open to a wondrous surprise. A beautiful, classic bar pulled out of the finest brasseries of the "Belle Époque," a dining room decked out in lacquer, gold and tons of marble. The kind of place that would (and can) inspire writers and artists alike with great beauty and traditional aesthetic. For lovers of that kind of timelessness, this could be the most gorgeous dining room in town.

It has been quiet news among the food and beverage crowd and downtown citizens that the great minds behind The Goodwich are the new management of Radio City Pizza (now Radio City Pizzeria but still RCP, for short) on Fremont Street. Where once there was little more than a simple sports bar-slash-pizza place, now there is some of this city's most adventurous Italian fare and craftiest beers.

The sugar high has worn off for Paris Las Vegas.
The Sugar Factory has closed at the center Strip resort with a VegasChatter reader spotting its departure over the weekend. The signage has already been ripped off the venue's exterior.

The idea is simple: guests who dine at Brooklyn Bowl's Blue Ribbon restaurant can now "jump" to the front of the concert line afterwards. They just need to show their receipt to security and they will be allowed entry into the concert area ahead of the general public. We wonder how long until other venues copy this concept.

The Cosmopolitan plans to take the New Year very literally. With new owners (Blackstone Group) and a new leader (Bill McBeath) installed, the center Strip resort will continue to bring the new.

Is Flamingo launching an intensive top-to-bottom overhaul which will bring more room updates? Or, is what's happening around the center Strip hotel-casino meant to update, but not overdo? The big picture over at Flamingo is still unknown, but one thing's certain -- this dirty bird is molting.
Yesterday, the resort's Tropical Breeze Cafe marked its last day of service while the Paradise Garden Buffet scaled back hours last month to just 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. Now, VegasChatter fan Jeff C. brings us our latest report on Flamingo, complete with images captured this past weekend.

There is only so much one can do to distance a burger from anything resembling food. It is a space race of cutting-edge technology to make a sandwich of bun and beef so little like its ancestor. Has society moved beyond the need of the traditional version, something about a hand-pressed patty being too old fashioned and relegated to the age of the 8-track and polyester pants? If so, White Castle is the dark, brutal 1984 glimpse into the future.
Like many native Las Vegans, the only knowledge I had of White Castle was the packaged freezer-section version. Imagine my surprise as not only did people await the opening of Vegas' first White Castle like the naming of a new pope, but those same people interspersed with tourists, lined up around host property, Casino Royale just to eat there. Naturally, out of journalistic integrity and morbid curiosity, it behooved me to recount and critique the experience.
