May 19, 2015 at 2:01 PM | by | Comments (7)

Now that Hooters Casino Hotel is going away, it's time to focus our eyes down er, up at the largest Hooters restaurant in the world, opening soon at The Palms.

Tipster PaperPoster has been keeping abreast of the construction progress for the two-story restaurant and its poolside bar, totaling about 15,200-sq.ft. of Hooters hotness. Here are the latest snaps.

Not much going on there yet but recent hooting suggests that the poolside bar will open on June 1, after the Memorial Day festivities. There hasn't been an official date announced but in the meantime, you can get an idea of the poolside view from the Hooters at The Palms Facebook page:

Now, when is O'Nutters opening on The Strip???

New York's Italian Restaurant Darling, Carbone, to Open at Aria in October

May 13, 2015 at 9:26 PM | by | Comment (1)

Amid rumors swirling of who would fill recently vacated Sirio spot in Aria, this morning it was finally announced that the space would be filled by recent New York City hotshots, Carbone. With a budget of over $3 million, they are sure to bring an already unique concept to great heights.

Carbone opened in 2013 in Greenwich Village to excited reviews regarding their old-school feel and tableside treatment by their “Captains", waiters nattily dressed in burgundy tuxedos, designed by Zac Posen.

With a menu pulled from the early 20th century "red tablecloth" Italian restaurants (think Lobster Fra Diavola, Chicken Scarpariello, Veal Parmesan and Octopus Pizzaiolo) and a service that harkens back to the glamorous years of fine dining, Carbone is coming to Vegas not to simply make a copy of themselves, but to apply the same concept to mid-century Las Vegas glory days.

Tableside service is a big part of Carbone, and everything from freshly pulled mozerella, flambe desserts, and Caesars salads will be part of the showmanship. Where Carbone NYC is a somewhat cheeky version of the mobster era, the Vegas version is going to go for a “Rat Pack” kind of vibe. It is sure to be an interesting experience, and since the restauranteurs themselves have already tested their mettle in Manhattan, the Vegas scene is likely to be a similar challenge.

Carbone is expected to open in October.

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 | Comments (3)

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.

Elvis Is Back In The Building At Westgate

Where: 3000 Paradise Rd. [map], 89109
April 27, 2015 at 3:16 PM | by | Comment (1)

Elvis is back in the building. That’s the slogan Westgate Las Vegas is going with, though, they seem to forgotten about headliner Trent Carlini who performed as Elvis for a long run before the new "Graceland Presents ELVIS: The Exhibition – The Show – The Experience." Their newest, multi-faceted Elvis extravaganza has gotten the stamp of approval from Graceland and both Priscilla and Lisa Marie Presley were on hand for opening night.

The full experience includes the new Elvis Presley’s Graceland wedding chapel (featuring wedding and vow renewal packages) and the first permanent Elvis exhibition outside of Graceland. More on the exhibition in a forthcoming post. The third part of the Elvis overload is a stage production show. On the 59th anniversary of Elvis’ first performance in the building, then the International, the new show kicked off.

As planned, Lago, the new dining destination by Chef Julian Serrano, debuted to the hungry masses this past weekend at Bellagio.

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.
