It Sounds Like Casino Royale Will Have A Denny's Again Before Year's End

Where: 89109
August 29, 2014 at 3:30 PM | by | Comments (5)

Torn down for expansion (and for, yes, another Strip-front pharmacy), Denny's should return to the center Strip sooner than we thought.

A representative of the 24/7 diner chain tells us the Casino Royale location -- which sees $8 million in revenue a year! -- is tentatively scheduled to reopen this November. Until now, we thought a return wouldn't happen until 2015.

At MGM Grand, A Closure For Remodeling Will Be Over Like 'Bam!'

Where: 89109
August 29, 2014 at 2:14 PM | by | Comments (2)

A multi-year Grand Renovation project at MGM Grand has slowed down after kicking out new rooms, casino carpet, dining spots and nightlife, but some of the resort's oldest longest running destinations aren't being ignored.

Emeril's New Orleans Fish House will close September 2-11 while it kicks its design and menu up a notch. The plan will add new fare as well as an oyster bar while a remodel of the space will make it more airy and introduce new promenade-side seating as well. Don't worry, though, about the menu changes. We're told guest favorites will remain.

The Vegas Strip Will Soon Have Two Border Grills

Where: 89109
August 29, 2014 at 1:09 PM | by | Comments (5)

Soon, you won't have to trek all the way to the south Strip for crowd fave, Border Grill.

A forthcoming Forum Shops location just held a hiring call last weekend. That already told us a debut was soon, but VegasChatter reader @CCORD can pin it down a little more. He sent us a Border Grill newsletter that touts an official opening this October. Will a September soft opening be possible? Keep those fingers crossed as best you can around that marg; but, if not, October will be here before we know it.

You'll find Border Grill in the old PJ Clarke's space at the Forum Shops. The Mandalay Bay location will not be closing so don't panic about that.

Verandah's Indoor Dining Room Closing For Remodeling

Where: 89109
August 28, 2014 at 1:40 PM | by | Comments (2)

At Four Seasons, guests have enjoyed a lovely room redesign for closing in on two years now. And, long-time readers know how im-PRESS-ed we've been with the redesigned lobby bar. Now, the focus is turning to the resort's informal yet still classy cafe.

VegasChatter has learned Verandah's indoor dining room will be closed September 1-22 for remodeling. Its patio, however, will still offer breakfast and lunch service. Dinner, however, will not be available. The closure also means the resort's yumtastic weekend breakfast buffet also will be off the menu until renovations are complete.

Why We're Heading For The Bar At CarneVino

Where: 3325 Las Vegas Blvd. [map], 89109
August 27, 2014 at 3:07 AM | by | Comments (0)

CarneVino has, for quite some time, had one of the best bar programs on The Strip. Old-school bartender class and new-school mixology wizardry are combined with fantastic steaks for quite an experience. But, if you're not in the mood for a 100+ day, dry-aged ribeye, they now have a bar-only "Cicchetti" menu.

Basically, an Italian version of true Spanish tapas, cicchetti are little bites laborers in Venice get with their beer in the afternoon. They'll get up to the bar, order a brew, and in the time it takes to shuffle over to the ice chest, open it, and exchange Euros, the patron will take a toothpick and nibble on a pepper-stuffed onion, an anchovy-stuffed olive, a little charcuterie. You get the idea. Simple, lovely, and great for both the patron and the bar.

Restaurant Week Plates Up The Best For Less Once Again, And All For A Good Cause

August 25, 2014 at 10:50 AM | by | Comments (0)

Las Vegas' Restaurant Week is coming up shortly, and with it a chance for diners to loosen their belts a few notches. A spot out there you've been meaning to try? A dish you've been hearing so much about? Here are just a few of the best spots to make the most of this Restaurant Week now underway through August 28.

One of the best ways a Restaurant Week dining menu can benefit you is by putting a typically expensive restaurant back into your price range. For example, Estiatorio Milos at The Cosmopolitan is notoriously expensive, but their $50.14 three-course dinner is an incredible steal. Just the entree of grilled Mediterranean sea bass is knocking on the door of fifty, but with a salmon tartare and their famous grilled octopus as appetizers, this is a deal. A sommelier wine pairing with your courses is $30 more.

Just One Dish: Escargot Pie at Comme Ça

Where: 3708 S Las Vegas Blvd [map], 89109

There are times when you sample a dish and taste everything that goes into the preparation. The time, effort, research, skill; you can practically hear that "ah, ha!" moment. Just absolute inspiration from step one to finish, that is how Chef De Cuisine Daniel Ontiveros brought the world the Escargot Pie ($19) at Comme Ça inside Cosmo.

The Cafe At THEhotel Gets A New Name With No 'The' In It

Where: 3940 Las Vegas Boulevard South [map], 89109
August 18, 2014 at 2:10 PM | by | Comments (5)

THEhotel at Mandalay Bay will cease to exist in just days now. It's transformation into Delano Las Vegas remains firmly (defiantly?) set for September 1.

The new name will bring refreshed rooms and a rejuvenated spa menu (see what we did there?) while a redesigned lobby will add new lounge and dining spaces to the all-suite tower. Still to come will be the rebranding of miX and the arrival of its own pool (yes, miX is going away and, no, there won't be a pool "on site," so to speak.)

You Can Now Dine At Tahiti Village's 17° South... If You Want

Where: 7200 Las Vegas Boulevard South [map], 89119

It's probably something you've never even thought about doing and may not even after you read this, but if you want to dine at Tahiti Village's restaurant, you totally can now -- and not be a guest.

All these years of disinterest and we've never known that we actually weren't even welcome at 17° South (which we believe used to be called Tahiti Joe's). Until this week, the restaurant had only been available to guests of the property, located south of Mandalay Bay. Now, however, anyone can head here for lunch or dinner.

After opening for a week then closing for nearly a month, Japanese Cuisine by Omae had still garnered quite a buzz. Recently, lunch service opened back up, and there are many reasons to hurry over. Chiefly, the September 3rd end to lunch service!

Turning The Spotlight On F.A.M.E. At The Linq

Where: 89109
August 12, 2014 at 8:34 PM | by | Comment (1)

F.A.M.E. Street Market, the new(ish), multi-faceted Asian-inspired spot in The Linq, sports several different food vendors, art, music, and entertainment. Hey, that spells "Fame!" (Or, rather, "fvame," but just go with it.) It's a pretty lofty claim by any standards, but how can you explain the concept to someone that may have just wandered into the space?

The most accurate description you could give anyone of F.A.M.E. is something along the lines of "a food court with only Asian food and also Fuku Burger is there." Aside from one of the mack-daddy names of the Las Vegas food truck scene, many of the other little specific outlets really cannot escape the feel of a cafeteria. Plastic trays, table numbers... really the only thing out of place is the beer (there are a couple of interesting ones on tap, mind you).
