Monday Mise en Place: Nacho Daddy Opens In Henderson, Stoners Everywhere Rejoice

One of the more fabulously ridiculous restaurant concepts to open up has done so in The Hendo Nacho Daddy, a gourmet nacho joint, has opened up on Eastern, just a bit north from St. Rose, in the former El Jefe’s location.  You can choose from over 20 plates of “Daddy’s Gourmet Nachos” or build your own nacho empire. Selections range from your standard Chili con Carne and Cheese variety to one that has Meal Worms, Crickets, Scorpions and a 100-year old egg.  Yeah, there’s not enough Roman Red on Earth to get me to try that one, but I’d like to watch!  From the looks of things, they also have a decent beer selection that is very reasonably priced.  We haven’t been there yet, but we will soon. Oh yes, we will!

The Wolfgang Puck Pizzeria & Cucina at the Crystals Mall in CityCenter is now featuring at “Happy Hour, Every Hour” at their lovely bar.  With select signature appetizers and cocktails all coming in at $7 or less, the bar menu includes Vegetable Pizza, Lemon-Chili Glazed Chicken Wings and a Frito Misto of shrimp and calamari.  Wolfgang Puck Pizzeria & Cucina’s hours are now 11:30am – 10pm on Tuesday – Thursday and 11:30am – 11pm Friday and Saturday.

The Naked City Pizza Shop and Moon Doggies Bar will be having their Orphan Christmas Party on December 24th starting at 9pm.  It will be a time for everyone to get away from their families to get shitfaced and eat good food. But wait, there’s more!  Launching at this Orphan Christmas Party is The Frickin Huge Pizza Challenge.  The Frickin Huge Pizza Challenge is for two competitors to tackle a Frickin Huge Sheet Pizza with 4 toppings, coming in at about 10.5 pounds!  The two competitors have 30 minutes to eat the pizza.  Winners will get the pizza for free, a T-Shirt and their picture on the Frickin Huge Wall of Fame, losers get pointed at, intestinal discomfort and their picture on the Frickin Huge Wall of Shame.  I’d try it, but The Wife and I are watching our figures.  If you try it, let me know!

Monday Mise en Place: Social House Takes Bluefin Tuna Off Their Menu

Social House Now Bluefin Free! Yay!

Social House Now Bluefin Free! Yay!

I’m thrilled to announce that I’ve finally been able to take a restaurant on The Las Vegas Restaurants Serving Bluefin Tuna List Of Shame off the list! Social House at the Crystals Mall in CityCenter has made the responsible choice to no longer offer the gravely endangered fish on their menu.  I hope other restaurants on that list will see the same light Social House did and follow suit.  Many thanks to TLV Army member, Julie Minadeo, for alerting me to Social House’s decision.  Remember, if you see Bluefin Tuna on a menu or inquire about what kind of tuna a restaurant uses and they say bluefin, let me know!  Together we can play a significant role in saving a species. Not bad.

This Man Wants To Hang With YOU!

This Man Wants To Hang With YOU!

As the couple two three dozen TLV Army members who rolled out to the first Tasting Las Vegas: The Tweetup can attest, Chris Palmeri, The Naked City Pizza Shop and MoonDoggies Bar know how to host a hang!  Hot off the heels of the good times at the Tweetup, they’re hosting Las Vegas’ Biggest Thanksgiving Eve Party on Wednesday, November 24th starting at 9pm.  Back in Buffalo, Thanksgiving Eve is the biggest drinking night of the year as old friends come back to town and hang until the wee hours.  There will be all sorts of specials, the kitchen will be open all night, there’ll be drinking games, prizes and a whole bunch more.  Good times guaranteed.  Remember TLV encourages you to drink responsibly!  Please throw up in the toilet, not the sink!

Fukuburger Rolling To MoonDoggies Bar and the Naked City Pizza Shop. Good Times Guaranteed!

And because the party never stops at the Naked City Pizza Shop you might as well just stay there through Saturday, November 27th as the NCPS and MoonDoggies Bar teams up with Fukuburger for a blowout hang event!  Stay tuned to Tasting Las Vegas on Twitter and Facebook as details roll out this week about the big event.   You can also follow the Naked City Pizza Shop on Twitter at @NakedCityLV and Fukuburger at @fukuburger.

Tasting Las Vegas: The Podcast Taking A Break To Eat Turkey

Tasting Las Vegas: The Podcast Taking A Break To Eat Turkey

A little programming note for this week, our next new Tasting Las Vegas: The Podcast will be uploaded to the internets for your listening pleasure on December 1st.  We’re taking a week off for Thanksgiving.  We need it. I’m tired.  Really tired. However, there’s some exciting stuff when we return, one of which is that we’ll be starting a new format to the show!  We’ve decided to separate the restaurant talk and hilarious banter which we’ve all grown to love into one episode, then there will be a separate episode that will be just the Chef Interview.  The idea is that y’all will have two separate shorter bits so it will be a tad easier to digest.

Also on our triumphant return on December 1st, we will announce The Next Phase of Tasting Las Vegas which I couldn’t be more excited about!   Don’t worry, we’re still going to be the bubble gum and duct tape operation of Las Vegas restaurant news and reviews…we’re just going to have an addition to the family.  And no…The Wife isn’t knocked up.  In the meantime, you can catch up on our first 7 episodes which are all found here.  Enjoy and have a great Thanksgiving!

The Weekly Bad Picture Of Good Food: Pepperoni Pizza From Naked City Pizza Shop

Is there anything that symbolizes the beauty of coming of age more than a flower at full bloom?  From a shy little green bud, the flower gradually opens to display its richly colorful beauty to the world.  Of course, every flower needs a helping hand to deliver it from its awkward bud phase to its colorfully confident blossom of adulthood.  From the warming caress of sunlight to the sweet kiss of morning dew, there are many parts to this coming of age process that every flower undergoes.  Pepperoni is no different.  From an unassuming tube, it’s carefully sliced then gently placed on a bed of lush mozzarella, mouth-watering tomato sauce and soft and supple dough.  Placed in the incubator of love that is the pizza oven, the once soft and cool pepperoni begins to curl upward, crisping at the edges, now acting as a vessel to hold the liquid gold known as pepperoni grease.  Neither picture (at least taken by me), nor written word (at least written by me) can truly capture this magnificent display of Mother Nature at its finest, thus making the Pepperoni Pizza from the Naked City Pizza Shop this week’s Weekly Bad Picture Of Good Food.

Monday Mise en Place: Chefs Stephen Hopcraft and Gerald Chin Move To The Cosmopolitan

Chef Stephen Hopcraft, soon to be Executive Chef of STK Steakhouse in The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas

Chef Stephen Hopcraft, soon to be Executive Chef of STK Steakhouse in The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas

Some of Las Vegas’ best and brightest in the culinary world are packing up their knives and moving to The Cosmopolitan! Chef Stephen Hopcraft is scheduled to work his last service at Seablue at the MGM Grand on Thanksgiving, then he will assume his new role as Executive Chef of STK Steakhouse at the Cosmo.  Also making the move to John Unwin’s Merry House of Tasty Eats is Chef Gerald Chin, formerly of RM Seafood at Mandalay Bay.  Gerald worked his last service at RM Seafood this past weekend and is now preparing for his new role as Chef de Cuisine of the Cosmopolitan Hotel.  Presumably this means Gerald will be overseeing things like room service and banquets, thusly solidifying Cosmo’s ass-kicking status for all things food related.  We’re still a month away from the big opening on December 15th, but all signs point to The Cosmopolitan as a major game changer in the Las Vegas culinary scene.  No word on who will be getting the bump to Gerald’s former position with RM Seafood or Stephen’s at Seablue.

The Face of Las Vegas Dining - Jet Tila

I don’t know about you, but my DVR seems to be overflowing with Chef Jet Tila of Wazuzu at the Encore resort these days.  Hot off the heels from his big shout out from Giada DeLaurentiis on the Food Network’s Best Thing I Ever Ate With Chopsticks, Jet was on the CBS Early Morning Show this past Saturday morning doing a cooking demo.  Word has it that The Face Of Las Vegas Dining is just getting started with major TV appearances.  I’m not just sayin’, but I’m just sayin’.   In case you missed it, here’s a link to the video of Jet’s very fine cooking demo.  I’m setting the over / under for Jet’s Dancing With The Stars debut at 2012 and the under is looking like a good bet!

On Tuesday, November 16th, The 17th Annual Cactus Lighting at the Ethel M. Chocolates factory in Henderson will be done.  The event goes from 5-8pm with the actual lighting of the cacti happening about 6pm.  This year, comedian George Wallace will host, so it should be a good time.  Tickets are required to go to the event, and a ticket can be gotten for every unwrapped toy you donate at Ethel M.  Tickets will be given on a first come first serve basis, so call (800) 471-0352 to get more information and to check availability.

I'm sure they got at least one or two right...

I would be remiss if I didn’t give a shout out to the big book debut of local comrades in food, John Curtas, Max Jacobson and Al Mancini with their Eating Las Vegas: 50 Essential Restaurants as it hits the bookshelves this Wednesday, November 17th.  I’m certainly looking forward to seeing what they picked as our 50 essential so I can have a great time telling you how much they fucked it up!  Ha!  I kid….sort of….  Best wishes to the Three Amigos on much success for their book.  Just think, they have a whole 28 days from the drop before it becomes totally obsolete! Yes, I already went there.  I have to.  It’s what I do.

Monday Mise en Place: Five French Culinary Masters To Cook For James Beard

Me and J-Ro

Me and J-Ro

It’s another day and another fundraiser for the James Beard Foundation.  This one isn’t even in Las Vegas, but it involves five guys with joints here in town, so I thought I’d give it a mention.  You may have heard of them; Alain Ducasse, Francois Payard, Joël Robuchon, Guy Savoy and Jean-Georges Vongerichten.  I guess all the good cooks were busy!  Wow, this ridiculous lineup of legendary talent will cook a multi-course meal for Culinary Liasons, the James Beard Foundations 2010 Gala dinner and silent auction.  The dinner will take place on November 10th in the Four Seasons Restaurant in New York City. It probably won’t suck.
