I was told about the legendary Happy Hour in Las Vegas at Herbs & Rye when I first moved to town. Today we look at Cleaver Butchered Meats……

Congratulations! We made it through another year! This will probably be the shortest Vegas News of the year so I’ll deliver it once again in Quick Hits format.
We’re slowly sliding to the end of the year. Hopefully, you’re having a great holiday season. Las Vegas is always fun around this time of year, especially Las Vegas New Year’s Eve. Tourists tend to stay away from Las Vegas until after Christmas Day. After that, it’s a different ballgame.
Dining Venetian Vegas | The casinos on the Vegas Strip with my favorite restaurants are Aria and the Cosmopolitan. However, I head north on the Vegas Strip when I’m not exactly sure what to eat.
But part of the trip that was critical to me was to check out, now that it was finally open and seemed to be a gem in the rough, the Lucky Dragon. I talked up the visit to the joint the entire trip to my friend. Intimate casino, catered crowd, boutique hotel, food that might rival the best Asian in the country (wrong…Arcadia always wins), and best of all…free parking. He shrugged (trust me, not a casino geek) and said sure. And along we went.
I was stoked when The Venetian announced that Chica by Lorena Garcia was opening earlier this year. The Latin restaurant is bringing a type of cuisine that isn’t found in most other Las Vegas casinos.
Sake Rok at The Park has become one of my favorite restaurants in Las Vegas. Somehow a sushi restaurant with live entertainment and audience participation found its way to my heart and stomach.
Giada Vegas has become one of the most popular Italian restaurants on the Vegas Strip. My recent dinner was by far the best GIADA Restaurant experience I’ve had.
Dining Near The Vegas Strip | Here are a couple of my favorite new off-strip dining hot spots along with a very newly opened restaurant. I’m including Uber ride-hailing estimates so you can budget time and money. You won’t find this kind of dining experience in a Las Vegas casino.
I recently visited the newest restaurant in the Grand Canal Shoppes at The Venetian, Mercato della Pescheria. The restaurant is located in St. Mark’s square replacing upscale Italian restaurant Postrio. The layout of Mercato della Pescheria is similar to Postrio with an indoor and “outdoor” table configuration. The outdoor seats are inside the casino under the painted sky ceiling.
