The Blind Pig Is Worth The Trip Off The Strip

The Strip has just about everything one needs in the food and beverage department, but sometimes it's nice to get away from the fray and experience a different type of dining experience. Enter The Blind Pig at Panorama Towers.

The newest concept from Block 16 Hospitality -- the folks behind Holsteins at The Cosmo, Venetian's Public House and the off Strip Barrymore -- The Blind Pig boasts hand-crafted cocktails and delicious food from Chef Anthony Meidenbauer. With LBS gone at Red Rock, it’s nice to know the brand's delicious burgers will live on at sister property Holsteins as well as The Blind Pig.

An invite for a media party let us sample the goods at this newly opened venue. The BP Burger ($12), served with gruyere, smoked bacon, arugula and garlic aoli was one of the true standouts on the menu and is almost getting us over the loss of LBS. Almost. The meatballs ($8), pizza ($11-$16) and crispy pork nuggets with a sriracha aoli ($13.50) were also tasty. The menu also features salads ($7.50-$13), sandwiches ($7-$14.50), steak ($18) plus shrimp and lobster mac & cheese ($16.50).

A Few New Things About The Linq

November 4, 2013 at 1:35 PM | by | ()

A view of The Linq from earlier this morning.

We know what we're saying here, but if things go as planned (knocks on wood), we could see the first venues open at The Linq, that outdoor mall being created between The Quad and Flamingo, next month. Including, maybe, the new O'Sheas.

The return of the dive casino (although, it will likely be up to you to make it so) should join the debuts of a handful of other outlets. (Although, we hear that many venues are more inclined to wait until the High Roller begins to send folks soaring which isn't expected until the second quarter of '14). They may include -- and we really can't stress the may part enough as this information was yielded through Internet searches of information that was last updated at anyone's guess -- KOTO, an eclectic gift shop; Sprinkles Cupcakes; and Tilted Kilt Pub & Eatery. Although, it's a pretty safe bet that, at the very least, the last two are more likely a 'coming soon in 2014' thing. Update: We were able to confirm that Sprinkles won't open until "early 2014."
