La Comida

Any good Catholic would love the wall of rosaries adorning one of the walls inside La Comida. Maybe my prayers for good food and good service were answered because the carnitas tacos ($11) were surprisingly good. Using diced up morsels of pork instead of pulled pork, the flavors were excellent and I loved the crispy… Continue reading La Comida

Chow

Chinese food. Southern food. Not exactly a match made in heaven, but they make it work at Chef Natalie Young’s second restaurant. Never one to follow the norm, Chef Nat’s concept of a having a lunch and dinner spot serving two distinct cuisines, recently celebrated it’s one-year anniversary. If the food I tried is indicative… Continue reading Chow

Stewart + Ogden

***Update: business closed*** Located in the slowly sinking ship know as the Downtown Grand, I can only imagine that Stewart + Ogden was a cut above when Todd Harrington (formerly of Central, now at Yardbird) was at the helm. Now, it’s just slightly bette than your typical Downtown casino bistro/diner/all-purpose restaurant. Walking in from the… Continue reading Stewart + Ogden

Art of Flavors

I’m jumping on the bandwagon — a bandwagon that’s been full since this place opened. Located in Downtown Las Vegas next to Viva Las Arepas, Art of Flavors is a small shop by Desyree Alberganti that produces house-made gelatos and sorbets that have forced many to forget about the once popular Luv-It Frozen Custard a… Continue reading Art of Flavors

MTO Café

Glancing at the menu I wasn’t that excited. Breakfast items sounded typical and lunch items were slightly more intriguing. What drew me in was the name of the chef/partner, Johnny Church, who doubles as the chef at RM Seafood and Rx Boiler Room and previously worked at The View in Tivoli Village. The concept of… Continue reading MTO Café

bin 702

I was here back in January. Located in the Downtown Container Park, it occupies one of the shipping containers on the ground floor adjacent to the kid’s park and stage. The inside is deceptively larger than what one would expect. It’s still tight quarters, but they managed to fit a kitchen/bar and two seating areas… Continue reading bin 702

Triple George Grill

It was an underwhelming experience. The food was decent all around, but not mind-blowing. The baked goat cheese marinara ($10.95) was heavy on the cheese, light on the marinara, and came with more than enough toast. The chicken parmesan ($14.95) was pretty good, but similar to a million other versions of the dish. It was… Continue reading Triple George Grill

Mundo Restaurant

In a city with few outstanding Mexican (or TexMex) restaurants, Mundo stands out as one of the best. Located in one of the northern buildings within the World Market Center campus, it’s one of the better off-Strip restaurants. Not only does it have wonderful food, it has an interior to match — as you’d expect… Continue reading Mundo Restaurant
