Quite possibly the defining restaurant for the whole of Downtown Summerlin (the mall south of Red Rock Resort which opened last year), newly opened Andiron sets out for a lofty goal, but does so with a heavy measure of grace.

Graeter's, a much-raved about craft ice cream brand by way of Cincinnati, wants to put the cherry on top of your Vegas Strip visit with its first outpost west of the Mississippi now scooping inside Caesars Palace.
New to this writer who has been on a strong McConnell's kick of late (another small batch ice cream producer but this one by way of Santa Barbara), VegasChatter readers were quick to confirm Graeter's was as irresistible as its serving containers proclaim when we shared news of its Las Vegas arrival last week. @misskatherinne stated it was the "best ice cream out there" while @Dan2330 proclaimed the chain as "top notch." So, I knew it wouldn't be long before I was counter side, and it wasn't.

The dining spot by Brian Malarkey opens to the public Friday evening, although some lucky luckertons are previewing it tonight. We spied the (almost) Top Chef checking out his newest destination earlier today. The eatery takes over the former Munchbar space adjacent to Omnia and features an eclectic, homey decor, with mismatched chairs, area rugs and rustic woods.

Las Vegas has seen celebrity residencies, restaurants, hotels and even salons. But, aside from Nobu hotel and restaurant, big names rarely venture outside of their small ponds, sticking to the discipline they know best. In May, that will change when Suzanne Somers, best known for her ditzy role as Chrissy on Three's Company, launches a residency at Westgate. And, opens a spa there. And, debuts a cafe, too.

Pawn Plaza, a shipping container shopping center being constructed just south of the cable-famous Gold & Silver Pawn by owner Rick Harrison, has announced its first three tenants. And, surprise! They're all dining spots!

A complete revamp in 2014 introduced the Strip's first Smashburger, an Earl of Sandwich, a Phillips Seafood, a Tiger Wok, a Di Fara pizzeria and a Starbucks to the fast-casual destination. Now, three months after its return, two new brands are ready to join their ranks: La Gloria and Graeter's Ice Cream.

Downtown Las Vegas continues to evolve as a work/play/live community. In the past few years, we’ve witnessed the transformation of Fremont East from a depressed area into a thriving neighborhood and nightspot. Closed storefronts and empty lots have been reclaimed by a variety of unique shops and restaurants as well as a mall made of shipping containers. The one thing lacking had been a grocery store. That changed last October with the opening of The Market.

Brooklyn Bowl's fried chicken, the much-raved about creation of Blue Ribbon Restaurants, is finger-lickin' good. Trust us. But, if you're gluten intolerant or just choose to say no to the g stuff, you've never been able to try it. Until now. A GF (gluten-free) version has been added to the menu.
The LINQ bowling alley/eatery/concert hall now offers GF fried chicken made with GF matzo meal "flown in directly from Israel." Apparently, they're buying 4,000 pounds of the stuff thrice yearly so don't be afraid of it running out.

The Cosmopolitan's dining choices have remained unchanged since it first debuted in December 2010. Soon, that will change.

If the whispers are true, Gold Coast's dining scene could be in for a major shakeup.
We hear the off-Strip casino's sole fine dining experience, the Cortez Room, could be closed this year to make way for a rebranding. Word on the street is that the Ports o' Call Buffet is also slated for a closure and that it would be replaced with a 24-hour cafe concept similar to Courtyard Cafe at sister casino, The Orleans. After (barely) surviving a five-night run at the $10 buffet a few years back, we won't be sad to hear that ship has finally sailed.
We reached out to parent company Boyd Gaming for comment. A rep relayed that they didn't have anything to share at the moment, but have a lot planned for their Vegas properties this year.

The green beer will be flowing in just a few days and, on the Las Vegas Strip, no three spots will get their Irish on more than O'Sheas at The LINQ, Rí Rá at Mandalay Place and pretty much all of New York-New York. Here's a rundown of what to expect at each for St. Patrick's Day:

Sometimes you just happen to be at the right place at the right time. Last Wednesday afternoon, while
nursing a hangover enjoying a nap at Oasis at Gold Spike, I was awakened by an email alert with a tempting offer. It was an invitation to head over to El Cortez for a taste of the menu to come for the not-yet-open, mobster-inspired Siegel's 1941.
Siegel's 1941 -- replacing the old school (and sorely missed) Flame -- once targeted a winter opening. Unfortunately, it's still under construction and playing catchup after various delays. A May 28 opening is now in the crosshairs, and the staff I spoke to seem to think they'll make it this time. Siegel's Executive Chef Aaron Neeley (who honed his skills inside restaurants at Caesars Palace, Venetian and Monarch Bistro of Houston, TX) is using the down time to try out some new dishes on diners at Cafe Cortez.
