Borscht at Tverskaya

Most people are probably more familiar with the dairy version of borscht eaten by the Jewish communities of Eastern Europe. But there is also a lesser-known beefy version done well here with carrots, beets, cabbage and potatoes, with a sour cream float. If you have a crock with the house black bread, you won’t leave hungry. $6.95, 4825 W. Flamingo Road, 247-8766.

Tapas Without Borders

By Max Jacobson

Beso, Eva Longoria’s dramatically designed restaurant at the edge of Crystals mall in CityCenter, has been largely ignored by the food press. So I decided to take a look, and was pleasantly surprised by what I discovered. Advertisements refer to it as a steak house and, indeed, the Harris Ranch Beef served here is great. I tried the 16-ounce filet and the 22-ounce bone-in rib-eye, charred medium-rare, and both were flavorful, tender and juicy. The massive Harris Ranch is on Interstate 5 in central California. You smell it before you see it, if you drive by.
