Yucatan Pork, Border Grill

Chef Mike Minor slow roasts a massive hunk of pork shoulder in a combination of bright red achiote paste and orange juice for four hours, wrapped in banana leaves. Enjoyed with fresh, warm tortillas, there’s an earthy, smoky and slightly sweet flavor to lusciously tender pork. $24, in Mandalay Bay, 632-7403.

A New Year, Baby

By Xania V. Woodman

Everything old is new again. So it should come as no surprise that the Sidecar served at downtown's new watering hole, Mob Bar, is a throwback to the original, but with some modern twists. Said to have been created in either Paris or London, and made with brandy (preferably cognac or Armagnac), triple sec and lemon juice, the classic World War I-era cocktail has spurred a fleet of variations, including the Bourbon Sidecar, and has ton of cousins, such as the gin-based Chelsea Sidecar, a.k.a. White Lady.
