Eatery Celebrates Birthday with Dining Discounts

Baja California's Food Could Help Restaurant Overcome Location's History

Critic: Good food and poor kitchen timing headline a trip to Baja California restaurant.

A friend who's a restaurant critic in another city calls them elephant burial mounds. They're restaurant locations where tenants and/or owners seem to cruise on by like so many Mardi Gras floats, leaving not a speck of glitter in their wake.

Popular Neighborhood Restaurant Moving and Expanding

Popular Neighborhood Restaurant Moving and Expanding

 

Many restaurants have struggled in the rough economy but one restaurant is actually expanding.

Rachel’s Kitchen is moving from its location in Summerlin to a bigger space just a mile down the street at Desert Inn and Hualapai. The expanded space means a bigger kitchen, more seating space and a climate-controlled patio. They’re also expecting a 20 percent jump in sales in the bigger space.

The owner, Debbie Sofer-Roxarzade, says the collapse of the construction industry has actually helped them get their new location on track.

“They have been there the whole time, everyone is been doing what they need to, to get it done versus five years ago when the construction market was so hot, if you were a small account no one really paid attention to you," said Sofer-Roxarzade.

CiCi's Pizza Opens New Location

 

Casual chain restaurant CiCi’s Pizza opened Monday an eighth Las Vegas location, this one at Sahara and Durango.

Eric Wollenhaupt, franchise owner, and his two partners, Mike and Dona Pohl, also own three other CiCi’s locations in Las Vegas.

“I have been with CiCi’s for more than 14 years, and I enjoy serving the Las Vegas community,” Wollenhaupt said. “CiCi’s is an affordable option for Las Vegas guests, especially in a down economy.”

Texas-based CiCi’s is one of the nation’s fastest growing pizza chains.

Hours of operation for dine-in and carryout are Monday through Sunday from 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Restaurant Critic: Summerlin Strikes Out!

Restaurant Critic: Summerlin Strikes Out!

Restaurant critic John Curtas reviews two Summerlin eateries and says both were lackluster.

In ELV’s world, bad meals come in bunches, and they usually come off the Strip. Lately, they’ve been comin’ in Summerlin.

We have a good friend, let’s call her the Restaurant Maven, who refuses to eat anywhere but on the Strip. ELV has tried and tried to convince her (and her chef/husband) there’s some quality eats in at least a handful of spots miles away from Las Vegas Boulevard South, but every time we have hit Nora’s or Vintner, they’ve brought their “B” game to the table, so now, it’s well nigh impossible to get her anywhere but a handful of hotels.
