  • New Year's Dishing

    Gordon Ramsay Steak

    By Grace Bascos

    The New Year should begin with a bang, and there’s no better place to feel that spark than in the dining room of a world-famous (and infamous) chef. Gordon Ramsay’s five-course menu starts with a Scotch egg, and features Ramsay’s signature beef Wellington Rossini and the traditional British sticky toffee pudding.

    Best Party Patio: Chateau Nightclub & Gardens

    We’re suckers for attention to detail. Stepping out of the elevator and onto the outdoor patio at Chateau has a way of transporting you to a world beyond the neon, while still feeding off its energy. Perched above Chateau and beneath Paris’ Eiffel Tower, the party patio’s Gardens are adorned with greenery. Here, roving costumed characters channel the debauchery of a secret, champagne-fueled soirée—a slice of Versailles that comes with a killer view of the Strip.

    Christina Wilson

    Patience does not run strong in chefs, says Christina Wilson. That’s clear in her as she strides across the Gordon Ramsay Steak dining room at Paris Las Vegas as if her kitchen is on fire. She landed the chef de cuisine job after surviving—er, winning the Hell’s Kitchen reality show.

    Falling for You

    By Xania V. Woodman

    Palm fronds don’t turn. They don’t deliver the brilliant riot of fall colors many of Las Vegas’ transplants and tourists have experienced in autumns past, the ones that signal the careful raking—and subsequent, exuberant annihilation—of leaf piles, followed by coming home chilled to the bone for a mug of hot cider or a warm slice of pie, fresh from the oven. Nope, palm fronds don’t turn.

  • Our Public Houses, General faux chicken, and the Olympics of Hunger Games

    By Max Jacobson

    If you’re still a bit confused by the fact that there is a restaurant called Public House at Luxor, it’s understandable. After all, there is another restaurant by the same name at the Venetian, and there is no relationship between the two. Luxor’s Public House (262-4000) is a large, boxy, brightly lit space with a […]

  • Gordon Ramsay Steak

    We were all excited when the peripatetic TV chef decided to open his first Las Vegas outpost. Now he’s doing a gastropub in the old Bradley Ogden space at Caesars Palace and has plans to open a third restaurant, Flame Burger, in Planet Hollywood. But he’ll have a hard time topping his Paris Las Vegas steak house, which you enter through a tunnel that copies the Chunnel, which goes from France, under the English Channel, into England.

    Fried Blue Pointe Oysters, Gordon Ramsay Steak

    By Grace Bascos

    Sure, there’s a three-month wait to get a table at the Masterchef judge’s restaurant, but that doesn’t mean you can’t grab a seat at the bar and have some snacks. These oysters are flash-fried tempura-style, with a crispy, airy coating. The juicy mollusks are then served back in their shells with a dollop of crème fraîche tartar sauce and some branches of crunchy sea beans to add texture.

    Breakfast of Champions, and Other Bargains

    By Anthony Curtis

    The cheapo breakfast was once synonymous with Las Vegas, but it’s hard to find one these days. What’s cheapo? Ninety-nine cents is the standard, but even a buck-ninety-nine qualifies, and they just don’t do those much anymore. One place that does is Emily’s at Club Fortune, which comes in right in the middle with a $1.49 breakfast, served daily from 6 to 11 a.m. This is a good one, with three eggs, two bacon or sausage, hash browns and toast. The only problem is getting out to the south end of Boulder Highway.

    Tyler Talk

    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 July 5-7 at Paris’ Empire Comedy. 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 on television.

    ‘Jersey’ By Way of Paris

    By Steve Bornfeld

    Excepting the fact that this theatergoer was a mere tadpole who did not sacrifice his virginity in “late December back in ’63,” everything about Jersey Boys feels real to the bone. Real as Las Vegas fakery can be—that’s why the heavyweight musical’s return is so welcome. (And yes, “Oh, What a Night” is indeed about that singular experience.)

    Elbow-rubbing with Portugal’s Michelin stars, and Gordo finally says Go!

    By Max Jacobson

    I am in Albufeira, Portugal, attending Tribute to Claudia, the sixth annual International Gourmet Festival, which attracts Michelin-starred chefs from every major European market and U.S. luminaries such as New York’s April Bloomfield. It’s an amazing event, and I feel privileged to be here.

    Winter Soup Flight, Mon Ami Gabi

    By Grace Bascos

    Only a few days remain in National Soup Month. The best way to take advantage is to have three soups at once. Mon Ami Gabi’s Winter Soup Flight features smaller portions of this French bistro’s classic Onion Soup au Gratin with bubbling Gruyère, the rich and earthy Four Mushroom Soup and Cream of Root Vegetable, which showcases the best seasonal items. $7, in Paris Las Vegas, 944-4224, ParisLasVegas.com.

    Maxing Out the Buffet of Buffets

    By Anthony Curtis

    Once in a while, an idea really hits the mark. The Harrah’s Buffet of Buffets all-day pass is one of them. It was launched in early 2010 and has now attracted more than 1 million customers. On this offer, you pay a single price for 24 hours of unlimited access to the buffets at Harrah’s, Flamingo, Imperial Palace, Paris, Planet Hollywood and Rio (Carnival World only).

    Best View

    Talk about having box seats on the Strip! Perched … nay, towering over the iconic boulevard is Chateau Gardens, the third and final phase of the Sugar Factory/Chateau Nightclub & Gardens complex. Joining the nightlife scene this fall, the garden-inspired outdoor party space sits atop the casino, between the legs of Paris’ Eiffel Tower and adjacent to Chateau Terrace—a triple threat for year-round partying. Ferrell broke in the venue at the October grand opening; Good Charlotte’s up next on Dec. 30.
