Bradley Ogden Shutters Hops & Harvest, Takes on Chain Chicken Scheme

Two restaurants closed over the weekend, one quite unexpectedly. Hops & Harvest, chef Bradley Ogden’s return to Las Vegas at the Tivoli Village mall, now belongs to the ages.

The chef is developing a concept called Funky Chicken, so he’s preoccupied, but the abrupt closure comes as a mild surprise, since the restaurant was a real plum. It may not bode well for the troubled Tivoli Village, either, whose only consistent draw seems to be a chain restaurant, Brio.

Kelly’s, on the other hand, a Long Beach steakhouse on Paradise Road, appeared to be stillborn. On my two visits, you could have shot a cannon off in the place.

Love at First Sip With Rose.Rabbit.Lie.

Watching Rose.Rabbit.Lie. come together is something of a cliffhanger. The Cosmopolitan's next act is a supper/social club opening December 30, a collaboration between the resort, Coastal Luxury Management (of Pebble Beach Food & Wine fame) and Spiegelworld (creators of Absinthe). But there are other players in this so-called "social experiment," where guests will dine, drink, dance and, presumably, be delighted by live performances.
