Off Strip Dining: Blue Ribbon Fried Chicken

July 16, 2015 at 1:00 PM | by | ()

You may be familiar with the Blue Ribbon brand name from their restaurants in New York, Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar and Grill at the Cosmopolitan or their food service at Brooklyn Bowl at The Linq.

Blue Ribbon is known for creative menus and quality food, but the dish they’re known for at all of their locations is fried chicken. Now they’ve taken their fried chicken to the Las Vegas suburbs and opened Blue Ribbon Fried Chicken at Downtown Summerlin.

Downtown Summerlin is evolving from being a just another shopping center to being a dining destination with excellent options ranging from quick serve restaurants like Blue Ribbon Fried Chicken to fine dining like Andiron Steak to simple desserts like Gelato Messina.

The Cows, The Dutch… Who Isn’t Bringing New Fast Food to Vegas?

July 2, 2015 at 1:06 PM | by | ()

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.

Why You Must Go to LAGO On Your Next Big Night Out

May 1, 2015 at 5:20 PM | by | ()

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.

Should You Indulge In Glutton?

Where: 616 East Carson [map], 89101

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.

Our First Thoughts On Little Tony's At Palace Station

Where: 2411 W. Sahara Ave. [map], 89102
April 29, 2015 at 3:35 PM | by | ()

The Dillinger in all its massive glory.

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.

Want To Skip The Strip Fight Weekend? Two Options Just A Road Trip Away

April 24, 2015 at 8:01 PM | by | ()

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.

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.

Just One Dish: Shrimp and Crab Salad Sandwich At Delano Beach Club

Where: 3940 Las Vegas Blvd. S. [map], 89119
April 23, 2015 at 3:49 PM | by | ()

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!

Hot Doggin' It At New York-New York

Where: 3790 Las Vegas Boulevard South [map], 89109

Hey Phil, if you're gonna spew, spew into this.

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.
