Finger Licking Fix Buffalo-Style Wings at Fix

They don’t call ’em finger lickin’ for nothing. Frenched “2-bone” chicken wings—13 of the little beauties per order—are brined and then quickly fried. Like so many things in the culinary world, chef Brian Massie’s tangy, spicy sauce is a secret, but he would rate the heat at about a six or seven on a scale of one to 10. So be forewarned. And when your taste buds get a little heated, cool them down by dipping into the house-made Point Reyes blue cheese sauce. $17, in Bellagio, 693-8300,

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.
