Spring Edition of Restaurant Week Launches Monday

An event that lets people enjoy a gourmet meal and help a charity is launching a spring edition for the first time. 

Las Vegas Restaurant Week starts Monday and goes through March 4. This spring more than 100 restaurants from around the valley will be offering special meal plans for a special price all to benefit Three Square. Some of the best restaurants in southern Nevada will be offering multi-course, prix fixe menus. The prices will be $20.12, $30.12 or $50.12 with a fixed portion of the money going to the charity.

Three Square works with food banks around the Las Vegas valley to provide food to those in need. The annual Restaurant Week expanded to include a spring edition because of its popularity.

Some of the restaurants participating include:

Critic: BOTTLES & BURGERS Befuddles

Critic: BOTTLES & BURGERS Befuddles

Restaurant critic John Curtas has mixed feelings about the new burger joint at Tivoli Village.

Let’s accentuate the positive at first, shall we?

The buns are nice, fresh, soft and squishy, just the way they’re supposed to be.

They don’t put sesame seeds on them — another big plus.

They use good meat and season it properly.

That meat is cooked to medium (the way “the kitchen suggests it”) which is too much for us, but just fine for most folks.

Those burgers (9 oz.) are neither too big nor too small…and they’re priced right: $9. As one of our dining companions remarked: “It is a good burger, not life changing, but very nice for the price.”

Old-School Soda Parlor Readies Grand Opening

A throwback candy and soda shop will hold its grand opening beginning at 11:30 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 9 in the Village Square complex.

Rocket Fizz, 9410 W. Sahara, bills itself as an old-fashioned soda parlor and sweet shop. The store is a franchise of a California flagship.

“We are looking forward to officially launching Rocket Fizz Las Vegas to the community during the month of love and friendship,” said Sheri Stewart, owner of Rocket Fizz Las Vegas.  “It’s fitting really as our business has been a labor of love for our whole family.  My husband, children and I are thrilled to be able to offer an expanded product selection at a larger and more centrally-located shop at Village Square.”

BACHI BURGER Better Bring It

BACHI BURGER Better Bring It

Curtas: movie theatres usually a graveyard neighbor for restaurants.

BACHI BURGER — a place of which ELV has been less than fond in the past — is soon to open right next door to Rocket Fizz, right between RF and the Regal Village Square Theaters.

Pizza Pizza!

Curtas: Two pizza entries rank better than the chains, but below the city's gold(en crust) standards.

If you follow ELV religiously — and let’s face it who doesn’t? — then you know he’s been on a pizza jag recently.

Critic: Rocco's Deli Doesn't Skimp on Portions

Restaurant critic says huge portions and great food are perfect combination for New York-style deli. 

"Wow, I do feel like I'm in a deli in New York," my friend said as she looked around Rocco's N.Y. Italian Deli.
