Pan Asian

Posted by Clint under Top Foodie Blog
This is cooking from the soul. Mix fresh ingredients with passionate cooking and what you get is one of the best Asian spots in the city. I haven’t actually eaten *IN* the restaurant, but have gotten take-out several times and each time the food has been consistently good. Both the garlic chicken ($8.95) and the [...]

Hash House a Go Go

Posted by Gidget Eats under Restaurants, Top Foodie Blog
If you go to Hash House a Go Go and don’t leave stuffed, it’s your own dang fault. While in Las Vegas my brother suggested we try Hash House a Go Go and mentioned their reasonably priced, absurdly large portions. They advertise themselves as purveyors of twisted farm food, putting a spin on old standard [...]

Great Bao Asian Café

Posted by Clint under Top Foodie Blog
This is one of the more unique locations for an eatery — inside a hair salon. But, make no mistake, what you’ll find amid the massive space filled with hair products and styling stations is a tiny counter just past the reception desk that serves up some delicious food. Don’t be scared. It’s ok to [...]

Settebello Pizzeria Napoletana

Posted by Gidget Eats under Restaurants, Top Foodie Blog
On the way back to our resort from Settebello Pizzeria Napoletana we racked up a $100 taxi fare. The explanation is a long story but I can confess that eating at Settebello is worth the hassle. A meal won’t cost nearly that much and it’s cheaper than flying to Naples. Luckily we got out of [...]

Jean Georges Steakhouse

Posted by Clint under Top Foodie Blog
Restaurant Week 2011. This was the final place we dined for RW. It wasn’t as good as our dinner at Scarpetta a few days earlier, but was good enough to make me want to go back to experience more. Located on the second floor of Aria behind the escalators, it’s tough to find but definitely [...]

Scarpetta

Posted by Clint under Top Foodie Blog
Restaurant Week 2011. The wife and I only planned on going out once for Restaurant Week, but after perusing all the menus we were persuaded to try one more place — Scarpetta at the Cosmopolitan. We were seated at a two-top by the window overlooking the Bellagio fountains. One of the better views in town, [...]

Charlie Palmer Steak

Posted by Clint under Top Foodie Blog
Restaurant Week 2011 was in full effect a couple weeks ago, where many restaurants have lunch specials for $20.11 and dinners for either $30.11 or $50.11, with part of the proceeds going to charity. It may be for a good cause but at most restaurants you really won’t be saving much when you compare the [...]

Las Vegas Dining and Buffet Tips

Posted by Gidget Eats under Tips, Top Foodie Blog
Traversing the South to the Desert Southwest, I continued my birthday extravaganza to Las Vegas where I met two of my best girlfriends. They appointed me to be in charge of all meals and after many hours of research on Urbanspoon, Chowhound and various websites, I complied a solid list. Since we didn’t rent a [...]

Viva Las Vegas: Dessert at The Cupcakery

Posted by Down Home Foodie under Top Foodie Blog
The Cupcakery After walking around the MGM Grand, New York New York Casino, and a couple other casinos, Kathy and I had a lapse in time between the sightseeing we had done and our evening plans.  While looking at the guidebook to find a snac... [...]
