Jim Begley discovers just how good the food is at Inyo Asian Variety Restaurant. While fare from  China, Korea and Thailand makes the menu, it’s the Japanese dishes that really shine. He recommends the black cod sukiyoyaki (“rivals Nobu’s renowned rendition at a fraction of the price”) and the sake sashimi (“surprises with hints of heat from the sesame oil”), as well as the yari ika (“simply an epiphany”) and tako carpaccio (a “presentation [that] is befitting a chef with Strip experience”). He says to avoid the kushi skewers (they “seem to be available anywhere along Spring Mountain Road”). Begley also notes that Inyo now has its liquor license. [LVW]

Al Mancini tries out the new Great American Food, the sandwich shop from Piero Broglia. He encountered two different experiences, the first bad and second better. His Cuban sandwich was cold with Swiss cheese that “completely overpowered everything else.” The meat on the steak sandwich “was overcooked and tough, while the peppers, mushrooms and onions were drowning in oil.” But his follow up visit revealed three “wonderful” sandwiches —The Great American Sub (“a sophisticated take on an Italian sub”), a panino with grilled chicken breast (“vaguely reminiscent of a Caprese salad”) and a Reuben.
