    Raising the Chocolate Bar At Hexx

    By Al Mancini

    Chef Matt Silverman was clearly passionate about the artistry involved in creating quality products from scratch using the best available ingredients. So I wasn’t surprised to see that same passion on display in the kitchen at the new Hexx Kitchen, Chocolate and Bar.

    Anthony Cools Is Still the Prince of Hypno-Horniness

    By Steve Bornfeld

    Don’t ever doubt that Cools is a master of this domain, and he affects a semi-smarmy, cocked-eyebrow persona to sell the “adult” antics he orchestrates, greeting us with: “If you’re horny and you know it, clap your hands.”

    One Hot Mess, One More Ramen, One Night at Nobu and a Really Long Table

    By Max Jacobson

    One Super Bowl commercial featured the Hot Mess Burger, a new sheriff in Fast Food City ($4.29, Jack in the Box). So your intrepid reporter felt compelled to run out and try one. And in spite of several umami-spiked ingredients—a seasoned beef patty topped with melted white cheddar, runny pepper jack cheese sauce, onion rings and jalapeños piled on toasted sourdough—it managed to be almost completely tasteless. The wonders of modern science never cease to amaze me.

  • Aisha Tyler Bringing Outsider Insight Inside Empire

    By Jason Scavone

    The inexhaustible Aisha Tyler has a schedule so packed, she only finds time to do stand-up on rare weekends off. One of those is tonight through Sunday at Paris’ Empire Comedy (8 p.m., $39.99-$59.99). She’s catching time from her daytime chat show, The Talk, which is just one of three shows she does -- along with Canadian sci-fi joint XIII: The Series and FX’s Archer, the best show currently on television.

    The British are Here

    By Max Jacobson

    Gordon Ramsay swept into town this month with a TV-star attitude, bodyguards and a swagger rarely seen from anyone in his profession. Two of the most famous chefs in the world, Guy Savoy and Joël Robuchon, mentored him, not to mention the legendary English chef Marco Pierre White. So when a man like Ramsay opens a restaurant in your hood, he damn well better deliver. I’m here to tell you he does. Max’s Menu Picks British ale onion soup, $17. Fish and chips, $44.

    Gordo moves in, another burger for your buns, and—BAM!—it’s soft-shell crab season

    By Max Jacobson

    Beef is again in the picture this week in a very big way. Surely the most anticipated restaurant opening of the spring is that of Gordon Ramsay Steak, opening at the Paris Las Vegas mid-May. I was given a hardhat tour of the premises, a two-story job connected to the main casino by a “Chunnel,” an actual tunnel-like structure bringing guests from Paris to Ramsay’s England. Once inside, the ceiling is emblazoned with a giant Union Jack, and the menu will boast fare such as shepherd’s pie and a proper fish and chips, as well as prime steaks.

  • New Digs for Empire Comedy Keep it Intimate

    When you walk into to the new Empire Comedy Club at Paris, you feel like it shouldn’t work as a space for stand-up. Most of the time, Napoleon’s, the lounge that houses Empire Comedy Club , features dueling pianos onstage with more spaced-out, bar-friendly seating. Even during the comedy show, it looks very dissimilar to a traditional comedy club setup. And that may be why it works so well.

  • Empire of Yuks

    By Jason Scavone

    When Harland Williams takes the stage at Napoleon’s Lounge inside Paris Las Vegas Feb. 9, he’ll be working again for Cort McCown’s production. What he won’t be doing is performing under the banner of the Playboy Comedy Club – instead kicking off Empire Comedy. With the Playboy Comedy deal expiring at the end of last year, McCown said it was the changing fortunes at the Palms that led him to consider jumping properties.
