Mac ’n’ Cheese at The Beat

Orecchiette pasta is gently tucked into a Kelly-green crock with a blend of four cheeses plus cumin and cayenne pepper, then topped with bread crumbs and oven-baked till positively bubbling over. For a little extra, add your choice of spicy chorizo, beef brisket, hunks of chicken, or veggies. And the next time someone asks you who makes the best mac and cheese in town you can tell them you do!

Butterscotch Pudding at Bradley Ogden

Sadly, it appears the end of this restaurant’s reign is near; it closes Jan. 2, to make way for Gordon Ramsay’s gastropub. And the only way to end a meal at Bradley Ogden is with the butterscotch pudding. Based on Ogden’s mom’s recipe, this dessert is thick, creamy, pleasantly sweet and sentimental, and it is served to every guest at the end of their meal. Get it while you still can, and conclude your meal as well as a dining era in fine fashion. Complimentary, in Caesars Palace, 731-7410.
