Monday Mise en Place: 'Cooking Well Is First' Breaks Into The Top 100!

You Can Vote Once Per Day from Now Through 09/30/10! Thanks so much for helping this happen!

You Can Vote Once Per Day from Now Through 09/30/10! Thanks so much for helping this happen!

Thanks to all of you that are supporting my little venture with Anthony Bourdain’s ‘Medium Raw’ Challenge! It’s because of your votes that my entry is now in the Top 100 and climbing!  There is still a little over a month to go, but the biggest part of the mountain is still left to climb.  I’m currently about 1,100 votes behind to break into the Top 10, so every vote is desperately needed!

I know many of you are squeamish about registering to vote on these websites, but the Connect Through Facebook thing they use is easy and all I can tell you is that The Wife has been voting everyday (ain’t she great?) and has had no problems with spam or otherwise.  If not voting for the quality of the essay, then vote for the epic hang that will be thrown in magnificent fashion should I actually win this pig!

Thank you to all for your incredible support and your dedication to voting once each day. Here’s a direct link to the essay – http://bourdainmediumraw.com/essays/view/1409

Opening to the public today is Republic Kitchen and Bar, located in the space vacated by Fadó Irish Pub at 9470 S. Eastern Avenue in Henderson.  Headed up by Chef Josh Green, who has an impressive resume that spans from Aureole to the late Daniel Boulud Brasserie, Republic appears to be offering mostly traditional American bar fare with a few twists here and there.  They are rolling with some late night hours with a reverse happy hour that happens from midnight to 2am each night, so that makes me happy to have another place for the late night gorge closer to the homestead.  Also things to note they are having a Saturday and Sunday Brunch that ranges from $8 – $17 and a decent looking cocktail and beer menu.  Best wishes to the folks at Republic Kitchen and Bar, I hope ye doesn’t suck! Republic Kitchen and Bar’s website is at http://republickitchenandbar.com.

Also near the new Republic Kitchen and Bar comes an Indo-Chinese Fusion restaurant called JaiHo at 9530 S Eastern Avenue in Henderson.  I know absolutely nothing about this place other than they say they opened on August 16th.  Oooh….a mystery!  Full website advertised as coming soon at http://www.JaiHoFusion.com.  Also best wishes to the crew at JaiHo, I hope ye doesn’t suck either!

R.I.P. - Naked City Sandwich Shop

R.I.P. - Naked City Sandwich Shop

It’s not all good news though, and I have the unfortunate duty of informing you that the Naked City Sandwich Shop is no more.  Apparently this happened while The Wife and I was on vacation, but I was just perusing through some Facebook pages today, and saw the news on the Naked City Sandwich Shop page.  All hope is not lost, however, it looks like they will gradually add in the Sandwich Shop menu to the new Naked City Pizza Shop location, so the best sandwiches in Las Vegas will still happen in Las Vegas, but we’ll just have to wait a minute to get them again.  I’ll let you know if there are any further updates.
