Rigatoni “D,” Maggiano’s Little Italy

The great thing about there being so many great Italian restaurants in this city is that while they all have a lot of the same menu items, they each have a signature dish that they have perfected. At Maggiano’s it’s the Rigatoni “D,” a heaping bowl of short, tube pasta with herbed chicken, whole button mushrooms and caramelized onions, all tossed in a creamy-yet-light and almost sweet Marsala sauce. $16, in Fashion Show, 732-2550.

She of the Top Toque

By Debbie Lee

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.
