In Vegas the only thing better than a free buffet is insider info on the top shows, restaurants and attractions. So many of the contests to rate these keys to a fun vacation have majorly padded votes or PR influence. Getting an honest opinion is hard to come by. That’s where VegasChatter and the concierge desk come in. Concierge are the front line in Vegas entertainment options. They’ve seen all the shows and eaten at all the restaurants. They’ve partied in every club and hit up every attraction.
VegasChatter got the chance to attend the Southern Nevada Hotel Concierge Association’s 25th Anniversary, hosted at Wynn Las Vegas. Steve Wynn himself even showed up and presented a few acts from his favorite child, ShowStoppers. These awards are voted on by the concierge and thus carry a little more clout than your garden variety recommendation.
The next time you head to downtown Vegas, come hungry. And, in loose fitting clothing.

The Planet Hollywood sportsbook had undergone some renovations this past March, including some major ones to the bar area. (I first noted it a few weeks ago as a tip to VegasChatter. I am now one of the team's newest contributors.)
During that same trip, my friends and I were able to check it out and see how they were faring during their first weeks of operation. The weekend that we were there was the first round of the NCAA 2015 tournament, and the new restaurant, Ringer, and book were undergoing a trial by fire, as the crowds associated with March Madness and spring break were present in full force.

Another week, another new pizza joint is about to make its Vegas debut. Recently, we've seen the openings of Pizza Rock at Green Valley Ranch (the valley's second location) and Pizza Forte at Sunset Station. Now, Little Tony's, a sister concept to the popular Pizza Rock brand, will start dishing it out at Palace Station next week.

Two new Fremont East eateries, with two different visions. While indulgence is the name of the game at Glutton, which opened Friday, VegeNation, located right next door and which opened Monday, focuses on health-conscious fare.

While small, sharable plates fill the menu of the Italian restaurant, the decor is being described as inspired by Italian Futurism, "the sweeping artistic and cultural movement of early 20th century Italy." What that translates to in real life can be seen in the photographs above and below.
Sometimes, a full restaurant review just won't do. Perhaps, there wasn't time for an A-Z meal. Maybe we just don't want to spoil it all. Or, a dog ate our good pictures. There may still be that one dish worth writing about. A new one, an old one. A newsworthy one or a memorable one (for better or worse). It might be the one dish, or drink, out of the whole experience that gets us to return. Or, stay away.
When a chain restaurant, large or small, offers an exclusive dish, it’s sometimes worth trying just to say you did. That was the case when checking out the new Pizza Rock location at the off Strip Green Valley Ranch. This location offers a dish you won't find at the downtown locale. It was a little outside of my comfort zone, but I just had to try it.

There's a lot of sh*t that happens in Vegas and not all of it can make it on our site as a full report. So, every Friday, we take note of some of the smaller announcements around town that may be of interest, too. Here's the rundown for the week of April 6:
WuHu at Silverton: The off-Strip hotel-casino will add a new restaurant, WuHu Noodle, this June.
Presented without comment: SLS is hosting an 18+ pool party Thursday, April 16 at Foxtail. Doors will open at 8 p.m. for what's being called "the sexiest new pool club in Sin City."
Lately, I've been noticing a ton of Vegas restaurant pics on social media that look as though they could have been taken anywhere in the world. Take this beautiful picture from Wynn Country Club, for example.

Outside of "open" bars or plunking yourself down in the casino for a while, buffets are the last bastion for unlimited booze. Over the last few years, though, there's usually been an up-charge attached to that.
While the Vegas Strip and Downtown receive much of the attention, and foot traffic, sometimes it's nice to hear praise about other casinos that remain just outside the limelight. Places like Silver Sevens, formerly Terrible's. VegasChatter reader and new Las Vegas resident Nick S. dropped us a line to share

Monte Carlo has been busy the past couple years adding more flavor to the Strip's restaurant lineup. Double Barrel opened its house up to the road closing in on a year ago and Sambalatte has been brewing up good cups of coffee for almost a year Strip-side, too. 800 Degrees was heating up pizzas here before it added a second location north at SLS, but the coolest experience that debuted was BLVD Creamery.
