Milos

You can get great seafood at many places in Las Vegas today, from Bartolotta on the Strip to King’s Fish House in the District at Green Valley Ranch. But Milos, the elegant Greek restaurant at the Cosmopolitan, is a game-changer on many levels.

It’s the first truly great Greek on the Strip, the only place you can eat lavraki, a kind of sea bass, done simply with the Greek trinity of lemon, oregano and olive oil. There is also red mullet, simply broiled but exquisite, and octopus so tender you can eat it with a spoon. Even better, this high-priced restaurant has a ridiculously cheap ($20.11) three-course lunch, where you can have a first course of Greek dips, a fish dish as a main, and karithopita (a walnut cake) as the dessert course, among myriad choices. It’s the best deal in town.

The bonus is Costas Spiliadis, the most charming of hosts. He’ll escort you himself to the fish market, where you will choose your dinner from the gaudy display of live and fresh fish on ice.

A night for chefs, by chefs

By Xania V. Woodman

The night was Sept. 7, 2001. The culinary community of Las Vegas and beyond came together in a ballroom at the Rio to support one of its own. Napa restaurant’s chef Jean-Louis Palladin had been diagnosed with lung cancer, and it wasn’t looking good. Upon his death just two months later, The New York Times honored Palladin as “a chef’s chef whose boundless creativity and relentless pursuit of the best and freshest ingredients set an example for countless other cooks.” His inspiration lives on today in the lives he personally touched as well as in the culinary scene at large.
