Chef Adam Sobel Taking A Snapshot of the RM Upstairs Kitchen

Hot off the heels of Gerald Chin hightailing it down the street to become Chef de Cuisine of the Cosmopolitan hotel comes the shocking news of Adam Sobel also saying goodbye to RM Seafood.  No word as to what Adam will be doing, although Rick Moonen himself alluded to Sobel getting his own joint when he said the following on his Facebook page:

“After two strong years working with Adam Sobel it is time for him to get a restaurant of his own and spread his culinary wings. With 100% of my support and appreciation I wish him all the best in the world and his legacy at RM Seafood will always be remembered!”

Best wishes to both Adam and Rick on this new era for both of them.  It appears RM Seafood has already hired another young gun that will help keep the restaurant moving onward and upward.  It’s an interesting choice to say the least. I’ll reveal the name of RM’s latest addition shortly.  Best wishes to him too.  Oops…I’ve already said too much!

Tommy Bahama’s in Town Square is now boasting the largest Rum Bar in Vegas, and certainly the largest Rum Bar found in any other clothing store / restaurant.  With over 150 rums to choose from, how do they even have room for the underwear section?  It’s an international assortment of rums with representatives from everywhere from the Brazil to Thailand and Jamaica to Nicaragua.  They also have a number of exclusive signature cocktails which all pair nicely with flowery printed shirts.
