"Las Vegas needs more restaurants of this kind," says Michael Uzmann of Japanese Cuisine by Omae, the 12-seater now only serving a seven-course omakase dinner at two seatings.
The only option on the menu is A5 Kobe with an $80 increase in the price and while he says the upcharge isn't worth it, "the difference was notable from the bite I was offered by a table mate."
He gives it four stars, calling it more of a dining experience than a meal. [EE]
He also goes to the barely open Pot Liquor CAS at Town Square, giving the restaurant with barbecue styles from across the South three and a half stars. He recommends the hand-sliced brisket, baby back ribs and brownie bread pudding. [EE]
Brock Radke tries out the new Argana and its Moroccan menu. "Moroccan fare may be most easily compared with Middle Eastern or Mediterranean, but Argana's dishes are more heavily spiced, bursting with sharp, memorable flavors—ginger, cumin, cinnamon, olives, mint, saffron, lemon." He recommends the chicken skewers ("shockingly delicious, tender and smoky chunks of white meat") and beef tagine ("brilliant, rich meat") among others. [LVW]
HKR gives DB Brasserie at the Venetian A grades across the board. She calls the food there "Perfectly executed French classics and versions thereof." [LVRJ]
