Behind The Scenes: How My 2010 7 & 7 Restaurant Picks Were Picked

I don’t know about you, but when I see Top (insert number here [that's what she said]) Lists, my blood usually starts boiling.  I often find myself thinking, “Are these people fucking stupid, corrupt, or a little bit of both?”  Whether it’s a Top 5 Greek Restaurants in Vegas list that doesn’t have The Fat [...]

Silk Road Is Still Open - They're Not Dead Yet

There’s been a flurry of bullshit swirling around regarding the status of Silk Road at the Vdara hotel, none of it good.  I’ve read everything from they will be closing to they are already closed.  However, I just took the 30 seconds necessary out of my day to call down to Silk Road and I’m [...]

Las Vegas went such a long time with only one Hash House A Go Go location, but now they seem to be popping up like pimples on Montana Fishburne’s ass.  The third location will mercifully take over the Red Cup Café space at the M Resort and is slated [...]

Breakfast at Heierling's: Great Food and Conversation at Silk Road

When I was approached via e-mail to do a story on the breakfast menu at Chef Martin Heierling’s Silk Road in Vdara, I jumped at the opportunity.  Not just because I know Chef Heierling does good work and because I’ve already eaten two very tasty and satisfying lunches at Silk Road unannounced, but because I [...]

News coming out of CityCenter that they have their first victim in Chef Martin Heierling’s Silk Road.  Thankfully, it’s just a flesh wound.  Effective today (March 1), Vdara’s only restaurant will no longer be offering dinner service, but will still offer breakfast and lunch with new hours of operation going from [...]
