Dishing: Spaghetti Carbonara, Ferraro’s Italian Restaurant & Wine Bar

Mimmo Ferraro’s version, as part of his Chef Mimmo Experience (and after five or so courses, it definitely counts as an “experience”), is a standout as the midpoint of the meal. The pasta is made in-house, and is made properly, with speck, pancetta, eggs and cheese. Ferraro’s final touch of black truffle and peas punctuates the creaminess and richness of the dish. $28 a la carte, $95 for the Chef Mimmo Experience, 4480 Paradise Rd., 364-5300,

By Grace Bascos

The English tradition of the Sunday roast at the pub is alive and well. Executive chef Jeremy Berlin serves his prix-fixe menu family style, so you have to—er, get to share with your table. Don’t worry, from the classic dishes of rosemary-roasted prime beef, Scottish salmon, minted English peas, real Yorkshire pudding and red wine marrow sauce and horseradish, there’s plenty to go around. $56 per person, Sundays 1-3 p.m., in Caesars Palace, 731-7410,
