THE STRIP— Have you been desperately waiting for Thomas Keller to open up another restaurant in Las Vegas? Sounds like you shouldn't hold your breath. When asked if he would ever bring Per Se or French Laundry to the Strip, he responded, "I think we have enough great restaurants here now. I don't think we need another fine-dining restaurant. You have Guy Savoy, Joel Robuchon, Pierre Gagnaire, Alain Ducasse, Daniel Boulud, I think that's enough." More Keller tidbits here.
LAS VEGAS— According to research done by The Strawhecker Group, Las Vegas is the most expensive city in the nation for dining out with an average restaurant bill of $46 per person. That beats out New York at $45 and Honolulu at $44.
DOWNTOWN— Therapy is now open and swinging on Fremont Street. The industrial space has a 26-foot tall wooden barrel ceiling, loft, and expansive bar. Check it out here.
SPRING VALLEY— Local favorite breakfast and lunch spot Griddlecakes is adding its third location to the Pine Plaza Retail center in Spring Valley. An opening date has not been announced, but hopefully it won't be long before Spring Valley denizens can dive into the restaurant's griddle skillets.
