Our Vegas Picks by Adam Rains
Rising from the Depths
Thanks to Bryant Jane and Lyle Cervanka, Starboard Tack has risen from the depths of Las Vegas memory. For late night, or anytime deliciousness, Starboard Tack should be the first on your list. The cocktails are classically fresh and vibrant, yet unpretentious. Their food menu brings an array of new-school meets old-school classics. For a late-night grinder, try the Mongolian Cheesesteak with its freshly baked and soft rolls made by the impeccable Delice Gourmands French Bakery. At the center of the sandwich is the marinated beef, which is wok fried with sautéed onions and scallions and glazed with a secret sauce of wonderment. It’s adorned with an ingredient that is so American, it’s in its name. The perfectly meltable American Cheese is a great choice because along with the freshness of the bread and the familiar sapor of the beef, this sandwich has many things to celebrate.
You can get “Served!”
Henderson has more places than ever to dine and cocktail. “Served” has joined the list and is delighting daily for breakfast and lunch. The menu has a multitude of dishes from many cultures and genres, all made with skill and care by Chef Mathew Meyer. One breakfast item of choice is the Short Rib Benedict. The slow cooked short rib is braised in beer and aromatics until its spoon-ably soft. It’s accompanied by lightly fried breakfast potatoes, perfectly poached egg and deliciously rich hollandaise sauce. It is dish that can’t be missed! See you in Henderson!
Verdugo West Brewing at Morels
The beer renaissance is still alive and well in the Las Vegas Valley. We now have more choices than ever and can enjoy tasty craft beer in every neighborhood and casino on the Strip. Joining the list of new options is the Verdugo West Brewing Co. They are a part of MCC Hospitality Group and have a portfolio of balanced beers with personality. With all of their flavors they are true to style and head brewer Chris Walowski has still found a way to make all of his beers unique yet extremely quaffable. Go to Morels at The Palazzo for a flight of some of their best. The “Brass Jar” hoppy amber will surely not disappoint.
