Get ready to see reality TV crews around Venetian.
TLC's Cake Boss and Jersey boy (but, not that kind) Buddy Valastro will open his first restaurant at the resort this fall. And, that's first restaurant as in ever. Buddy is teaming up with the folks who brought us VegasChatter's runner-up for best restaurant of 2012, Honey Salt, for a culinary endeavor aptly named, Buddy V's.

Bradley Ogden left Caesars Palace to make room for more Gordon Ramsay, but luckily for Las Vegas he isn't staying away for long. His return becomes official Friday, May 31 when his latest venture Hops & Harvest opens in the former Bottles and Burgers location out in the 'burbs at Tivoli Village.

You can count on Las Vegas to bring out your wild child, but these restaurants will take your trip from adventurous to amorous. So, bust out those credit cards (these places aren’t cheap!) and put on a collared shirt (how romantic can you be in a tank top?) and get ready to impress your special someone with some candlelight and a bit of bubbly. Here are our five favorite restaurants to visit when we're in the mood for love:
Eiffel Tower Restaurant at Paris
A restaurant in a fake Eiffel Tower in the middle of the Las Vegas Strip could’ve been ridiculously cheesy, but this place gets everything right. From personal service (ask for Lyle!) and the awesome views of the Bellagio Fountains to the velvety red decor, it’s like Valentine’s Day every day inside the Eiffel Tower Restaurant.

You know you love Las Vegas when you take time to grab a scoop even when you're on vacation. VegasChatter writer jproz is from Canada, eh, but has spent the last few days enjoying his latest dose of Vegas. That didn't stop him, though, from excitedly sharing a first look at PUB 1842, one of several new restaurants headed to MGM Grand.
Jeff tells us construction walls just went down earlier today for the Michael Mina concept which replaces the chef's former SEABLUE restaurant. Bright red doors mark the entrance while wood beams run along what appears to be "patio" seating. (Patio meaning along the indoor pedestrian walkway.)
Vegas Returns / GameWorks / Town Square / Arcades / Restaurants / Openings / → All Tags
A few months back, we were feeling pretty confident in sharing news that GameWorks, shuttered in March of 2012 on the Strip, would return to Vegas with a new home at Town Square. Now, we can confirm the early heads up from our Richard Lane. (To do: See if Richard can take a short trip to Primm with us.)
Local TV news outlets are reporting today that GameWorks will reopen this November, with bowling, laser tag, and virtual gaming alongside more traditional arcade experiences. It'll serve up food again, too, with a 225-seat restaurant.

Everyone likes to know more than the person next to them. There are advertised specials all over Vegas for the best this and the best that. There's nothing very special about reading an ad that's available to anyone with two eyes. What you won't see shared very often are the unannounced specials at many casino restaurants.
The other day we were fixin' to get a simple salad at the Grand Cafe at Red Rock Resort; but, before we ordered a $12 salad, we decided to check with the waitress to see if there were any specials. Lo' and behold, our plans for a relatively healthy lunch went down the drain when we found out that the special was a burger and fries for $6. Not bad. They also had a $10 steak special, but that didn't feel right for 1 p.m. These specials change pretty often and in this case saved us 50% on lunch. Nice!

"Crystals is not a mall..."
Those are the words of an MGM Resorts executive during a first quarter earnings call so it makes sense that the company is leaving that burger shack to the coming promenade between Monte Carlo and New York-New York. No, here at this high-end shopping destination only a burger palace will do. Bobby Flay's Burger Palace, to be exact.
Plenty of people watch what they eat these days, but we didn't realize how much what we eat is being watched. Or, more specifically, what we might eat. Last weekend as VegasChatter zipped up and down The Strip checking into various Vegas hotspots, we were warned at just about every turn where not to eat. Or, at least to be careful.
Exhibit A: Finding ourselves at Palazzo with a group of friends craving pizza, we landed at Grimaldi's. Being our virgin visit to this location and figuring there's probably pizza points or some
useless badge to be earned, we let the world know where we were at:
@vegaschatter Be careful! I got food poisoning there last time I was in town.— Bill Barnwell (@billbarnwell) April 28, 2013
VC fan Bill Barnell was quick to warn us of the food poisoning he didn't order, but took home as a parting gift. Ouch (easy for us to say).

Mandalay Bay isn't done reinventing itself.
With LIGHT nightclub, Daylight Beach Club, Kumi restaurant and Cirque's Michael Jackson ONE all opening soon(ish) and the Delano replacing THEhotel next year, the south Strip resort is still finding time to ask, what else? (And, let's not forget the renovation of Red Square, the planned renos of its food court and Mizuya, the opening of Citizens Kitchen and that still empty space once home to Shanghai Lilly.)
