Gyro Sandwich, Greek American Grille

A good gyro is for some reason hard to come by west of the Mississippi. Since this sandwich has only a few elements, they all must be done right: The gyro meat must be seasoned well, the pita must be warmed properly, but it always comes to down to the tzatziki, or yogurt cucumber sauce. And it is Greek American Grille’s tzatziki that makes this sandwich stand out from the rest. $6.25, 4860 W. Flamingo Road, 453-3900.

She of the Top Toque

Susan Wolfla doesn’t need your congratulations for being a woman. Mandalay Bay’s new executive chef may have the honor of being the first woman to hold that position in the Strip’s history, but she thinks there are far more interesting topics to talk about. For instance, the unforgettable roast pork she ate while in the red-light district of Hong Kong. Or her recent forays into molecular gastronomy. Or the slow extinction of the city’s shrimp-cocktail specials. Anything food-related is up for discussion; talk of the industry’s gender gap is not.
