There’s a growing number of great meatless dishes in town, but our favorite is Spago’s homemade agnolotti. Chef Eric Klein uses 26 egg yolks in each batch of pasta, which produces about 15 pounds of the half-moon-shaped pockets. The filling might be corn, pea or mushroom, depending on what is in season. They come 15 to an order—they’re available on the tasting menu, but can be procured a la carte if you ask—drizzled with rich Parmesan butter sauce. (While you’re there, his brilliant falafel are also worth a try; instead of the usual garbanzo-bean flour, the chef has invented a pea-based fritter, totally vegan, bound with potato flour.)
A Peek at Life Is Beautiful 2017
Gorillaz are coming to Las Vegas for the first time ever. 2016’s Grammy winner for best new artist, Chance the Rapper, will return. English rockers Muse will bring their dizzying live show to the streets of Downtown. And that’s just the top of an eclectic bill that features more than 70 acts, along with comedy, interactive art installations, a group art exhibit featuring the work of Mark Ryden, Tara McPherson and Shepard Fairey and much more. Last year saw more than 137,000 attendees trod the festival footprint. Who’s ready for more?
