    Digging Gold Pancakes, Giada Loves Polenta and Aussies Are Coming

    By Grace Bascos

    The Mirage loves putting gold in its food, apparently. First there was the Diamond & Gold Lasagna over the holidays at Portofino, and now, for those who want some bling with their breakfast, there are the Golden Jackpot Pancakes at The Pantry.

    Portofino’s the Talk of the Town

    By Al Mancini

    There aren’t many styles of cooking that Las Vegas is missing. But the closing of Valentino in the Venetian late last year left a noticeable void in the form of Italian haute cuisine.

  • Vegas to Get More of Morimoto

    By Xania V. Woodman

    Renowned Japanese chef Masaharu Morimoto was said to be tight-lipped about the location of his first Las Vegas restaurant when he was in town for last month’s UNLVino weekend, where he was honored with a Dom Pérignon Award of Excellence. The foodie rumor mill had Morimoto Las Vegas opening in the former Restaurant Charlie space in the Palazzo. But in a statement today, the fate of Japonais in The Mirage was sealed, as that will be cleared to make way for the Iron Chef’s contemporary Japanese and sushi restaurant, slated to open in early 2014.

    1 Oak Lures in Legend

    By Jason Scavone

    Mirage nightclub 1 Oak celebrated its birthday the same way JFK celebrated his: By having someone croon “Happy Birthday” to them. And look how well that turned out for Kennedy. (Fine. Too soon.) John Legend was subbing for originally scheduled performer 2 Chainz on February 22 when he came in to mark the occasion, doing “Green Light,” among other songs.

    Jeselnik Ready to Go on Offensive

    By Jason Scavone

    Caligula, with its connotations of sociopathic decadence, is as accurate a name for a stand-up special as any since Raw. Or possibly Carlin at Carnegie. Either way, Anthony Jeselnik hit the stage in his recent hour-long set with all the detached malice and wry amusement of Patrick Bateman channeling Mitch Hedberg.

    Where East Meets Best: 1 Oak

    Las Vegas lucked out last year when it welcomed New York import 1 Oak Nightclub to the former Jet space in The Mirage. Actually, it was a lot more than just luck that led to the 16,000-square-foot space’s sophisticated makeover. As featured in last year’s awards (VegasSeven.com/NightlifeIssue/2011), it was the fortuitous collaboration of New York’s elite the Butter Group and Las Vegas royalty, the Light Group, that brought the Avalon Sound system to life in an all-new design set off by artwork from Roy Nachum.

    Best Afterhours: The Artisan Whether it’s because Artisan Afterhours is hassle-free or tourist-free (or both), the gothic hot spot still dominates the late-night hours as the go-to place to keep the party going. DJs are able to dig deeper into underground sounds where the music and vibe takes precedence over selling bottles. You’re pretty much guaranteed to run into industry buddies chilling on the patio with a hookah as the sun rises.
