    Simon Closings, Yardbird’s New Burger and Westgate Menu Previews

    By Al Mancini

    It didn’t come as much of a surprise to most people in the industry when the news broke that Simon at Palms Place (702-944-3292) will close its doors when the restaurant’s lease expires in May. The fact that chef Kerry Simon’s hamburger restaurant KGB (in Harrah’s, 702-369-5000) will also be closing at the end of its lease was a bit more unexpected.

    The Palms’ Moon Shutters After Nine-Year Run

    By Jason Scavone

    A nine-year run is like 63 in club years. (Who's a good club? You're a good club, yes you are.) Moon has been offering al fresco clubbing since the middle of the Bush administration, but now it's going to give way to a new concept on the top floor of the Palms' Fantasy Tower.

    N9NE Steakhouse Gets a Tasteful, Tasty Makeover

    By Al Mancini

    Walking into N9NE Steakhouse for the first time since its recent remodel and menu re-write, I was a bit nervous. A little more than three years ago, I publicly vetoed its inclusion in the first edition of my restaurant guidebook, over the strenuous objection of my colleague, co-author and Vegas Seven food critic Max Jacobson.

    Best Standup Act

    Any year where Don Rickles plays at The Orleans makes it hard for any other act to get in consideration as the best stand-up in the city, but a one-off at the Palms was stunning for the quality of comedy as well as the unlikely source.

    Ready to Rumpus

    By Xania V. Woodman

    The Palms wants a greater share of your aggregate drinking time. They’re making this patently clear by sweeping away the old or underused and bringing in the new and awesome. First, we got Scarlet, a six-seat mixology bar with tons of romantic cache. Next came Social, a center bar with a focus on North American whiskey. Not content to let the dust settle on your excitement, the Palms is poised to announce the makeover of the bunny hutch, the Playboy Club.
