Earlier this year, we questioned the popularity of fast food dining in Vegas. We found that even after the novelty factor associated with a grand opening wears off, crowds will still line up for their favorite chain restaurants. In-N-Out proves that daily, as do more recent additions like White Castle and Steak ‘n Shake.
Vegas loves its food and fast-casual operators across the country have taken note. It’s no surprise that the nation’s most popular chains continue to choose Vegas as home for their newest locations.

Whether your taste buds prefer to speak Italian or Spanish, holy moly chef Julian Serrano's newest restaurant Lago translates to a-m-a-zing in any language. Bellagio's lakeside Circo-replacement is a bright, airy and elegant space that screams experience upon entering. The original menu is primarily Italian tapas covering meats, seafoods and pasta but also offers entrees for those that save room.
With floor to ceiling views overlooking the famous Bellagio fountains, window and outdoor seating will be at a premium for what many diners will expect to be the star attraction. And while Lago offers prime viewing, the resort's dancing waters easily become second fiddle to Serrano once the first bites begin to arrive.

After the announcement of Glutton's downtown arrival, there wasn't much info released until its opening. Until very recently, there even wasn't much of a publicly available menu. But, it seems the new dining destination is up and running at what feels to be cruising speed after serving up its first customers on April 10.

If you’re a Pizza Rock fan, you now have another place to enjoy Tony Gemignani’s delicious creations: Little Tony’s at Palace Station. Several of his classics like the popular Cal Italia and the ginormous Dillinger have made the move, but the menu also offers a lot more like specialty pasta dishes not seen at his other two restaurants in downtown and at Green Valley Ranch.
The design elements are more like Tony’s San Francisco restaurants. There’s no giant semi truck in this location, sigh. Comfy leather booths and red brick give an old school pizzeria charm. New to this location are also the cast iron pizzas plus several pizzas not available in his other Nevada restaurants.

Fight weekend. If you read that with more dread than excitement (especially when combined with Derby madness and Cinco de Mayo celebrations), there are two more off-beat events set for the same weekend that will get you off the Strip. Way off the Strip. Avoid the masses due to overrun Las Vegas Boulevard by hitting the highway and motoring 80 minutes north to Mesquite or 30 minutes southeast to Boulder City.

During a recent stay at Delano Las Vegas, we were able to speak with staff members at miX on when the long-running fine dining destination with a view would officially close for good. We knew the time was coming, as we've mentioned previously, but there was no set date as to when the restaurant would serve its last meal. A server now tells us the last day miX will be open is May 30th.

In a nearly unprecedented move, Restaurant Guy Savoy is opening early to put on a prix-fixe brunch for Mother's Day, Sunday, May 10 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. It's been two years since it's last opened for any brunch event so this is almost like Willy Wonka opening his doors. Almost.

Usually at pools and beach clubs the food is pretty basic. The menus include classic staples like burgers, sandwiches, fruit platters, chicken strips etc. Nothing extraordinary. When I visit pools, the last thing on my mind is the food. I’m usually more interested in the drinks (don’t judge). So, when I recently visited Delano Beach Club, the last thing I expected was to be blown away by a food item on their menu. But, I was.
My guest ordered the Shrimp and Crab Salad Sandwich and I initially cringed. The sounds of crab and shrimp salad didn’t appeal to me, especially in the heat and while drinking the beach club’s sweet, sugary drinks. I was wrong about the sandwich, though, and pleasantly surprised. It was fantastic!
With the opening of his newest restaurant, former Top Chef contestant and Food Network judge Brian Malarkey brings his unique spin on American food to Las Vegas. Occupying the former space of Munchbar, Searsucker adds yet another dining choice to Caesars Palace.
The next time you head to downtown Vegas, come hungry. And, in loose fitting clothing.
Sure, we've all said we're stuffed at one time or another, but try shoving 61 hot dogs down your throat in ten minutes. Now that's stuffed. Ah, yes, it's that time of year again when Nathan's Famous hot dog eating contest returns to New York-New York's Brooklyn Bridge and passers-by stop to gawk while trying not to vom.

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.
