Al Mancini of CityLife found disappointment in the revamped Springs Cafe on the grounds of the Springs Preserve. Culinary king Wolfgang Puck’s catering division used to run the show there, but now the reins are handled by graduates of The Culinary Academy of Las Vegas.

“The only thing I sampled that I'd describe as above-average was my vegan burger. The patty was moist and well-seasoned, and the vegan ancho chili aioli that topped it was exceptional. The accompanying kale salad with tabouleh, however, was pretty boring.”
Mancini even found fault with the front of the house. The hostess had to look in the cooler to find out what beers were served, while a server had to ask the kitchen about a detail on the menu.

Max Jacobson checks out the pizzas at the new Dom DeMarco’s Pizzeria & Bar in Summerlin: “Two that impressed me were a Quattro Formaggio (four cheeses) and the Di Fara Special, a square-cut with a lot of pepperoni. (OK, I admit, I’m a sucker for pepperoni.)” [Vegas Seven]
