    Eat With Your Hands, Local Bakery Goes to War

    By Grace Bascos

    I’ll bet lumpia to longanisa that you don’t know much about Filipino food. That’s fine; the unsung Asian cuisine doesn’t get as much play as Chinese or Thai, perhaps because it’s one of those cuisines that’s best enjoyed in someone’s home kitchen. September 24 is your chance to get educated on—or, if you’re already a fan, indulge in—some proper Filipino fare.

    Palms Casino Resort is apparently the place to be when you want to help feed hungry children in Southern Nevada. Two upcoming events have attracted the city’s top chefs and mixologists, who donate their time to create bites and sips in the name of feeding families in need.

  • The New Dinner Party

    By Xania V. Woodman

    Studio 54’s VIP section routinely featured a room-service cart of sandwich and cookie platters back in 2002, the thought being, I guess, that if you fed us we would stay. (It worked.) Of course, there are much finer things on offer today for pre- and post-party dining on the Strip—First Food & Bar in the Palazzo, Rattlecan in the Venetian, Allegro in Wynn and Society Café in Encore.

    How Italy and Brazil do brunch; Restaurant Week goes semi-annual

    By Max Jacobson

    The Grill at Piero Selvaggio’s Valentino is rather drab. That’s a pity, because it is so well located at the casino end of Restaurant Row at the Venetian. You might have walked by it and not stopped in. Don’t make that mistake again if it is Sunday Brunch time, because this may be the best brunch in Las Vegas.

    Amid the ritual hullabaloo of the back-to-school process, there’s the privilege of eating. School means free or discounted food for more than 50 percent of Clark County School District students who would be hungry without assistance—a tragic commentary on the state of our economic recovery. With Las Vegas’ unemployment rate still hanging at a national high of 13.8 percent, the basic needs of an alarming share of children aren’t being met. At least 150,000 Clark County kids lack sufficient meals, 6,000 of whom are homeless or without a permanent address.

Guests set their own pace at serving stations where chefs from restaurants including Alize, The Capital Grille, Bradley Ogden, Vintner Grill and N9NE Steakhouse provided examples of their menu favorites. Barefoot Wine & Bubbly, New Amsterdam Gin, Stella Artois and Bacardi were among the providers of the cocktails.
