A rendering of Lago's main dining room.

This year, there's not too many restaurant openings on the Strip to get really excited about. Bellagio, however, will offer one of the exceptions to the rule when Lago by Chef Julian Serrano takes to the Vegas dining waters in April.

Off Strip Dining: Andiron Steak & Sea

Where: 1720 Festival Plaza Drive [map], 89135

Andiron Steak & Sea is the latest restaurant in the Blau Associates takeover of Las Vegas suburb, Summerlin, which has already brought the area dining destinations, Honey Salt and MADE L.V.

Quite possibly the defining restaurant for the whole of Downtown Summerlin (the mall south of Red Rock Resort which opened last year), newly opened Andiron sets out for a lofty goal, but does so with a heavy measure of grace.

The Strip officially welcomes its newest restaurant, Searsucker, this weekend at Caesars Palace.

The dining spot by Brian Malarkey opens to the public Friday evening, although some lucky luckertons are previewing it tonight. We spied the (almost) Top Chef checking out his newest destination earlier today. The eatery takes over the former Munchbar space adjacent to Omnia and features an eclectic, homey decor, with mismatched chairs, area rugs and rustic woods.

Las Vegas has seen celebrity residencies, restaurants, hotels and even salons. But, aside from Nobu hotel and restaurant, big names rarely venture outside of their small ponds, sticking to the discipline they know best. In May, that will change when Suzanne Somers, best known for her ditzy role as Chrissy on Three's Company, launches a residency at Westgate. And, opens a spa there. And, debuts a cafe, too.

You can add dessert and Mexican fare to your choices at the still newish Forum Food Court at Caesars Palace.

A complete revamp in 2014 introduced the Strip's first Smashburger, an Earl of Sandwich, a Phillips Seafood, a Tiger Wok, a Di Fara pizzeria and a Starbucks to the fast-casual destination. Now, three months after its return, two new brands are ready to join their ranks: La Gloria and Graeter's Ice Cream.

Brooklyn Bowl Now Serving Gluten-Free Fried Chicken

Where: 3545 Las Vegas Boulevard S. [map], 89109

Brooklyn Bowl's fried chicken, the much-raved about creation of Blue Ribbon Restaurants, is finger-lickin' good. Trust us. But, if you're gluten intolerant or just choose to say no to the g stuff, you've never been able to try it. Until now. A GF (gluten-free) version has been added to the menu.

The LINQ bowling alley/eatery/concert hall now offers GF fried chicken made with GF matzo meal "flown in directly from Israel." Apparently, they're buying 4,000 pounds of the stuff thrice yearly so don't be afraid of it running out.

Dining Changes Rumored For Gold Coast

Where: 4000 West Flamingo Road [map], 89103
March 16, 2015 at 3:59 PM | by | Comments (9)

If the whispers are true, Gold Coast's dining scene could be in for a major shakeup.

We hear the off-Strip casino's sole fine dining experience, the Cortez Room, could be closed this year to make way for a rebranding. Word on the street is that the Ports o' Call Buffet is also slated for a closure and that it would be replaced with a 24-hour cafe concept similar to Courtyard Cafe at sister casino, The Orleans. After (barely) surviving a five-night run at the $10 buffet a few years back, we won't be sad to hear that ship has finally sailed.

We reached out to parent company Boyd Gaming for comment. A rep relayed that they didn't have anything to share at the moment, but have a lot planned for their Vegas properties this year.

Open Bar Options On And Off The Strip

March 16, 2015 at 3:05 PM | by | Comments (8)

Drinks from Double Barrel Roadhouse.

VegasChatter Twitter follower @wclsc59 recently asked us about the best Vegas venues for open bar options. If youíre aiming to drink for an extended period of time, the standard $12-$14 cocktails at many bars will add up quick. Many open bar options will be more budget friendly, but remember, just because your wallet can handle it, doesnít mean your liver can!

If youíre in the Ďburbs out at Red Rock's Mercadito (or can get there), brunch comes with a two-hour open bar featuring cocktails, wine or beer plus three brunch items to share. Itís $38.50 per guest and includes standard brunch drinks like margaritas, mimosas, Bloody Marys and a variety of fruity concoctions.

At El Cortez, A First Taste Of Siegel's 1941

Where: 600 East Fremont Street [map], 89101

Sometimes you just happen to be at the right place at the right time. Last Wednesday afternoon, while nursing a hangover enjoying a nap at Oasis at Gold Spike, I was awakened by an email alert with a tempting offer. It was an invitation to head over to El Cortez for a taste of the menu to come for the not-yet-open, mobster-inspired Siegel's 1941.

Siegel's 1941 -- replacing the old school (and sorely missed) Flame -- once targeted a winter opening. Unfortunately, it's still under construction and playing catchup after various delays. A May 28 opening is now in the crosshairs, and the staff I spoke to seem to think they'll make it this time. Siegel's Executive Chef Aaron Neeley (who honed his skills inside restaurants at Caesars Palace, Venetian and Monarch Bistro of Houston, TX) is using the down time to try out some new dishes on diners at Cafe Cortez.

At Westgate, Starting The Day At Sid's Cafe

As the number of 24-hour coffee shops and cafes inside Vegas casinos continues to dwindle, itís refreshing to report on the addition of a new one. Sidís Cafe at Westgate Las Vegas isnít content to be your typical greasy spoon. Sure, it offers the usual late-night ham and eggs, but at Sidís, they're served with fancy napkins under an enormous chandelier.
