Why BARDOT Brasserie Is A Game Changer

The culture of dining in Vegas is mercurial. A trend in restaurants can come and go with a quarterly budget, but sometimes there are upsets that have been brewing underneath the surface, breaking through the zeitgeist and shifting the impetus of future new restaurants. In shorter words, a game changer. That is what BARDOT is.

Many months ago, it seemed a puzzling news item that Michael Mina would re-brand an already running fish restaurant into a French concept at Aria. Then, the doors flung open to a wondrous surprise. A beautiful, classic bar pulled out of the finest brasseries of the "Belle Époque," a dining room decked out in lacquer, gold and tons of marble. The kind of place that would (and can) inspire writers and artists alike with great beauty and traditional aesthetic. For lovers of that kind of timelessness, this could be the most gorgeous dining room in town.

It has been quiet news among the food and beverage crowd and downtown citizens that the great minds behind The Goodwich are the new management of Radio City Pizza (now Radio City Pizzeria but still RCP, for short) on Fremont Street. Where once there was little more than a simple sports bar-slash-pizza place, now there is some of this city's most adventurous Italian fare and craftiest beers.

You Can Now Jump The Line At Brooklyn Bowl Without Getting Into Trouble

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

At The LINQ, Brooklyn Bowl has just launched a great new program called Double Jump for guests who want to receive preferential access to the concerts at their venue.

The idea is simple: guests who dine at Brooklyn Bowl's Blue Ribbon restaurant can now "jump" to the front of the concert line afterwards. They just need to show their receipt to security and they will be allowed entry into the concert area ahead of the general public. We wonder how long until other venues copy this concept.

At Flamingo, A Cafe Closes And Other Changes

Where: 89109

Is Flamingo launching an intensive top-to-bottom overhaul which will bring more room updates? Or, is what's happening around the center Strip hotel-casino meant to update, but not overdo? The big picture over at Flamingo is still unknown, but one thing's certain -- this dirty bird is molting.

Yesterday, the resort's Tropical Breeze Cafe marked its last day of service while the Paradise Garden Buffet scaled back hours last month to just 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. Now, VegasChatter fan Jeff C. brings us our latest report on Flamingo, complete with images captured this past weekend.

Zydeco Po-Boys Bringing Cajun Cooking To Downtown

Where: 616 E Carson Ave, Suite 140 [map], 89109
February 13, 2015 at 4:19 PM | by | Comments (2)

A glimpse at what's to come from Zydeco Po-Boy's Facebook page.

Southern food options are on the rise in Vegas. While Emeril’s New Orleans Fish House and Lola’s have been around awhile, there has been an uptick in Southern-style restaurants. Fried chicken seems to be one of the new “it” foods and Yardbird at Venetian is off to a good start. Now, it’s time to get even more specific as the heart of downtown Las Vegas delves into a sub-genre of Southern cooking: Cajun cuisine.

Zydeco Po-Boys, opening possibly by April at 7th and Carson, will be the first restaurant by Louisiana-born chef Brandon Trahan. After working at notable Vegas establishments like Emeril’s Fish House and Marche Bacchus, Trahan has partnered with Downtown Project to open his first restaurant.

Returning to THE Steak House At Circus Circus

Where: 2880 Las Vegas Blvd South [map], 89109

Sometimes, a full restaurant review just won't do. Perhaps, there wasn't time for an A-Z meal. Maybe we just don't want to spoil it all. Or, a dog ate our good pictures. There may still be that one dish worth writing about. A new one, an old one. A newsworthy one or a memorable one (for better or worse). It might be the one dish, or drink, out of the whole experience that gets us to return. Or, stay away.

Just One Dish is replaced today by just one plate. Most high-end steakhouses list everything on their menu as a la carte. If you want side orders, you’ll have to buy a serving usually meant for sharing. It's not really a big deal, but not the most economical way to eat. Many times, food is left uneaten or you end up eating more than you should.

January 30, 2015 at 9:20 PM | by | Comments (2)

There's a lot of sh*t that happens in Vegas and not all of it can make it on our site. So, every Friday, we take note of some of the smaller announcements around town that may be of interest, too. Here's the rundown for the week of January 26:

March Madness: Yes, the Big Game isn't even over but folks have been talking about March Madness in Vegas since the end of last year. (Shout-out to the March Madness in Las Vegas Facebook group! Holla!) If you're dying for info, we can now share TI's plans. The resort will host basketball fans March 19-21 in its ballroom. Entry will be free and seating will be banquet-style (first come, first serve). There will be a cash bar, concessions and satellite betting stations so you won't miss a moment of action (unless you're in the restroom). Doors will open at 7:30 a.m. each day.
