Après Ski-Style Winter Fun
Vegas is onto the dining “igloos” trend popping up in NYC, DC, and elsewhere in the country, but the learning curve has been costly. When Esther’s Kitchen put them up last year, the restaurant ended up having to make them conform to fire code to the tune of $25,000. Owner and chef James Trees says the investment was worth it though. Tivoli Village announced plans to debut them at Ada’s Wine Bar, El Dorado Cantina, Leone Cafe and PKWY Tavern very soon.
