Just One Dish: Delmonico's Bacon Appetizer

Where: 3355 Las Vegas Boulevard South [map], 89109

Sometimes you look at a menu and something stands out that you can't help but to keep going back to. For this writer, it’s often a main course that sounds like it will be better than the other dishes. It’s rare that an appetizer is so intriguing that everyone at the table keeps flipping the menu back to the first page to make sure they’re reading it correctly. That was the case during a recent visit to Delmonico at the Venetian to try the Piedmontese steak (which was great). Standing above the other appetizers was the following:

APPLE CURED KUROBUTA BONE-IN BACON
with Pickled Watermelon Rind and Abita Root Beer Glaze
$17

The Strip's New Border Grill Could Be Open As Soon As...

A look at some of the dishes from the new location.

Rumor has it the new Border Grill location inside Forum Shops at Caesars Palace could be opening as early as this afternoon for dinner service. They’re just waiting on the liquor license to be finalized. They've been doing mock service since last week in preparation for what a Caesars’ concierge said would be a “fall opening.”

Taking over the former space of P.J. Clarke's, the new location will have a bar area as well as a patio extending into the area in front of the restaurant. Sources closer to the action say all the restaurant should be open for lunch service tomorrow at the latest, if things go according to plan.

Get Your Giada On For Breakfast Now, Too (But, Dinner Still Requires Patience)

Giada plus three square meals equals a continued reservation backlog.

At The Cromwell, the eponymous restaurant of Giada de Laurentiis now serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. Starting your day with the Food Network personality (or, at the very least, surrounded by her presence) may be your best route if your interest in the dining destination is still high but your patience for waiting is low.

Emeril's New Orleans Fish House Is Back With The New

Where: 3799 Las Vegas Blvd. S. [map], 89109

Sometimes you just have to yell “BAM!” and knock out a wall or two. Emeril Lagasse and his team at Emeril’s New Orleans Fish House decided to do just that and kick it up a notch when they revamped the restaurant that’s been an integral part of MGM Grand's dining scene for a whopping 19 years.

The redesign -- which recently called for the restaurant to close for a few days -- included knocking out a wall to create a more welcoming "patio" dining area at the dining spot's Studio Walk entrance. New custom upholstery in various shades of blue gives a water vibe to the seafood restaurant and definitely makes you forget you’re in the middle of the desert.

El Sombrero: A Downtown Classic Receives New Life

Where: 807 S Main St. [map], 89101
October 9, 2014 at 2:27 PM | by | Comments (3)

Anyone who has made the turnoff from Charleston onto Main has surely seen the facade and spied the flashing sign from when neon flowed from the valley like water from a geyser. The bright pink tubing and teal backdrop proclaiming the location of El Sombrero Cafe.

Inside is a space that is fit for a 1950 lunch spot (the year it opened, in fact.) A cozy room with a kitchen that has seen a big share of restorations and expansions. Now that it's been passed on to new, creative hands, the eatery is ready to resurface in the public consciousness.

El Sombrero Café “closed” a few months ago, much to some food lovers' dismay. Through the various wheelings and dealings that have characterized much of Downtown’s revitalization, it was transferred to leadership who saw the turning of the tide, and had the moolah to get their boogie board and ride along with it. As such, it is once again open, with not only a hip new interior, but also a very unique menu to go along with it.

All-You-Can-Eat Sushi Now Daily At M Resort

Where: 12300 Las Vegas Blvd. S. [map], 89044
October 3, 2014 at 6:22 PM | by | Comments (4)

You’ll have to eat it in the sushi bar area only, but the hours for Jayde Fuzion’s all-you-can-eat sushi option have expanded. The M Resort restaurant has added new hours along with new menu items. Previously, the special only ran Sunday through Thursday, but it’s now available daily with new small plates to sweeten (or its savory equivalent) the deal.

Though, sushi purists may wish to stick to the more traditional rolls, the new menu additions include crispy calamari, chilled Vietnamese salad rolls, pork egg rolls, steamed BBQ pork buns, vegetable tempura, seaweed salad, pickled Asian cucumber salad, edamame and miso soup. The widened variety means even if there’s a seafood-phobe in your group, they can find plenty to eat to make the AYCE deal worth it.

Delmonico Serving Up Piedmontese Beef

Where: 3355 Las Vegas Boulevard South [map], 89109
October 3, 2014 at 4:44 PM | by | Comments (2)

Delmonico has always done things to set itself apart from the steakhouse crowd. In the Venetian|Palazzo, there are three other steak-specific places: Carnevino is Italian, Morels is French, and CUT is an LA/Beverly Hills style. And, none of them are slackers.

Delmonico has been going the extra mile to distinguish itself, adding unique meats to its signature Southern/Louisiana style, most notably a whole pig raised on Templeton Rye was turned into several "Snout to Tail" dishes. The restaurant also has added a truly interesting facet to their steak repertoire, one that many gourmands may not even be familiar with. It now has the exotic Piedmontese Beef.

You’ll have fewer hours in the day to hop in the conga line and have shots poured into your mouth at Senor Frog's.

The drinking will start a bit later now at the TI establishment. The bar/restaurant has officially cut back its hours and now opens Sunday through Thursday at 2 p.m. and at noon Friday and Saturday. Previously, the party could begin at 11 a.m. daily. Closing time is still flexible so you’ve got the power to keep the party going on that end, at least.

A Visit To Vegas' Newest BBQ Joint: Pot Liquor CAS

Where: 6587 Las Vegas Blvd South [map], 89119
October 2, 2014 at 7:05 PM | by | Comments (2)

Just two short weeks ago, Pot Liquor CAS (short for Contemporary American Smokehouse) opened in Town Square. While any non-chain BBQ opening in Vegas is a good thing, there are several points that make this particular brand of smoked meats a bit more than what meets the eye.

A fairly hip space, Pot Liquor CAS has an impressively pedigreed chef at the helm. Chef/Owner Doug Bell was once the exec chef at StripSteak and now serves as corporate executive chef for The One Group. Just before that, he was at New York City's Plaza Hotel, heading up The Todd English Food Hall. With a maestro like that, there are sure to be some interesting eating ahead.
