Re: Las Vegas Casual Dining Thread

Went to DOCG enoteca, 3rd floor of Cosmo for lunch.

$8 Panini's were big and delicious, while the calamari was light/crispy, with deep-fried fresh herbs etc and a great tomato dipping sauce ($11).

Looking forward to trying the pizzas and pastas there another time (pasta's and mains aren't served btw/n 2-5pm apparently, only lunch/dinner).

Open till 11pm S-R, 12am F/sat

If Fukuburger had a burger without a mayo based sauce on it I would be happy but unfortunately they just don't. Balsamic reduction and red wine vinaigrette on sliders = They have my vote.

Translation to the above: When a "food snob" goes slumming.

TT, until you walk into a Mickie D's, have a burger w/fries that have been sitting there for half an hour...accept your destiny, you R a food snob.

2nd self image cleanup request, Aisle TT.

Weird sounding at first, but balsamic vinegar is a common ingredient in some of the better bar burgers. Next time you grill, marinate the meat in a reduction first... it will smoke more than it usually does and it might end up more brt on the edges, but the flavor is a really cool biting effect.

Beijing noodle no. 9 has one of the best plate of noodles in Vegas imo. Get the eggplant hand-stretched noodle dish for $13, can't go wrong.

Wynn buffet, $86 for 2 on a friday night. Insay its worth it if you gorge on the snow crab legs, otherwise its not worth the price.

Re: Las Vegas Casual Dining Thread

Struggling to think of fast food options on Strip, you don't have to go far off strip to fall over KFC/Popeyes/etc everywhere.

Will quite often find fried chicken and waffles on breakfast/brunch menus and there maybe fried chicken on some of the run-of-the-mill casino 24hr cafes.

But for a fried chicken fix, the chicken tenders served in Venetian poker room are pretty decent, and a big basket of it for the $$.

Re: Las Vegas Casual Dining Thread

And of course just about every food court will have some fried chicken options...but I'd still hold out for the Venetian In-room poker option.

Any good places to get a bone marrow or pork belly dish?

Headed out in June and have never tried either of those.

Thanks for any recommendations.

CUT has a bone marrow starter and a pork belly starter. And as with several steakhouses, you can order more bone marrow as a side dish. Not particularly casual dining though...

Went to Table 10 (Palazzo) last night. New chef, revamped menu. The bone marrow app was spectacular. The candied bacon and grissini (w/prosciutto and black truffle butter) were also quite good.

Less expensive, yet still expensive is Bouchon's chicken and waffles. And it kills Blue Ribbon. For casual dining I think the best fried chick dish is probably Has House a Go Go's chicken and waffles

Or head off strip to Monta noodle house, I havent been yet but our friends tell us it kills #9 and is cheaper too.

I think the marrow was $7 or $9, its expensive, but if you just wanna try marrow its price cant be beat, might be the best priced marrow in a mid-high restaurant in town. Just sit at the bar, get a beer, and go to town on the marrow and candied bacon if you want to save some $$$ IMO. I went there with CKBWoP and some other friends, the menu from the new chef is pretty good!
