The Weekly Bad Picture of Good Food: Beef and Cheese From Julian Serrano

You know how I know The Wife loves me?  She took me out to a 3 hour lunch at one of my favorite restaurants in town for my birthday.  There’s no better way to ease into old age than a long, slow graze.  Small plate after small plate, pintxo after pintxo and pitcher after pitcher [...]

One of the restaurants I was anticipating the most at CityCenter was Shawn McClain’s first Vegas outpost in Sage in the Aria resort.  Knowing of Chef McClain’s dedication to locally grown, sustainable organic foods, I couldn’t wait to see what masterful things he does with the ingredients.  However, my great expectations were somewhat disappointed as [...]
