Next time Max Jacobson dines at SHe by Morton's, the new female-friendly steakhouse from Eva Longoria and Tilman Fertitta, the president and CEO of Landry's, he plans to bring earplugs. "?this place isn't targeting our generation, the baby boomers. Looking for a quiet dinner? Forget it."
He found the food here hit or miss. The chopped salad "just misses the mark because of an overly tart dressing," while the baked oysters are tasty but timid. Even the a He-cut 16-ounce prime strip came up short, missing the char he requested.
On the positive side, he enjoyed the crab-cake minis, Little Big Royales, a variation on sliders and the salmon.
Even the dessert menu features a feminine sensibility with a box of house-made chocolates and Goodnight Kisses, which the Vegas Seven food critic describes as "brown-sugar meringue kisses of various size and shape, paired with cake roulade infused with banana-flavored cream."
Jim Begley at Las Vegas Weekly spoils the gimmick behind Biscuits 2 Burgers by telling readers the main menu items use biscuits and burgers. "The burgers, on the other hand, are better than average, a simple preparation of good meat grilled with a hint of salt and pepper." [LVW]
He also checks out Nosh & Swig, the new tapas restaurant from former Stirling Club executive chef Steve Piamchunter. The menu here covers the map, and with so many items, "misses aren't unexpected, and they're hardly horrible here." Try the Asiago-filled cremini caps, Singapore Greens and chilaquiles. The liquor license is pending. [LVW]
Heidi Knapp Rinella at the Las Vegas Review-Journal feels like she discovered a gem in Thai Thai Restaurant in Henderson. Her only complaint was "the spicy scale may be a little high." She gives the service and atmosphere an A, the food an A- for an overall A. [LVRJ]
