ARTS DISTRICT’S NEWEST BAR, RESTAURANT IS 

18BIN

The Las Vegas Arts District’s newest bar and restaurant is 18bin

It’s the latest concept by Las Vegas culinary veterans and investors Sonny Ahuja and Don Welch, the team behind the critically acclaimed Bin702 at Container Park. 

With a 4,000-square-foot indoor space and 5,000-square-foot outdoor patio, 18bin is situated on the corner of Charleston Boulevard and South Art Way in the Arts Factory.

18bin

The décor reflects the neighborhood’s eclectic ambiance with its vintage lamps and light fixtures, as well as indoor and outdoor furniture. 

18bin accommodates 100 guests indoors and 150 guests outdoors on its large, trellis-covered terrace. 

Live entertainment is scheduled regularly, and the venue will offer special programming on its outdoor stage on First Fridays. 

Hours are daily opening at 11 a.m. and going to midnight Sunday-Thursday and until 2 a.m. on Friday and Saturday.

CONSTRUCTION BEGINS ON WORLD’S LARGEST 

PERMANENT ICE BAR

Construction on the world’s largest and permanent bar made solely of ice began Nov. 9 and be completed on Nov. 24 and open in December.

ICEBAR at The LINQ Promenade will be 1,200 square feet, kept at 23-degrees Fahrenheit, and made from nearly 100 tons of ice shipped from Canada and Minnesota. 

The new attraction will be open daily to the public from 11 a.m. to 1 a.m. and have a capacity of up to 500 guests in indoor and outdoor space. 

ICEBAR

650 ice blocks each weighing 250-pounds arrived,  and 12 professional ice carvers worked around-the-clock to construct the 10 X 10-foot operational ice bar and create sculptures to fill the space.

Some of the highlights will include statues of Vegas Golden Knights and Evel Knievel along with settings like the North Pole, Ancient Rome, the NHL Experience, a library with a working fireplace, and 12-foot ICE angel wings. 

A fun fact is the ice was created by utilizing a special process that removes all air bubbles, resulting in the clearest ice possible.

Some New Local Eats to Explore


Hardway 8

Related image

46 S. Water Street
Downtown Henderson
(702) 410-5124


A sports bar with an elevated menu helps redefine downtown Henderson

The new arch on Water Street says it all. 

Downtown Henderson is primed for a comeback and the addition of Hardway 8 is helping speed up the process. The sports bar -- operated by the same team behind Starboard Tack east of the Strip -- is heavy on local pride. 

The name is borrowed from a UNLV basketball team that made the Final Four in 1977 and the bar tops are built from bleachers used at the old Las Vegas Convention Center arena. 


There's even a mural on the wall dedicated to Sin City's history as a destination for jai alai. 

Image result for hardway 8 mural

And while the concrete bricks almost make the place feel like a high school gym, Hardway 8 is actually warm and inviting. 

Shoot hoops, play Skee-Ball, or just hang out with a beer and listen to live music. No matter what, you're going to wolf down some of the best bar food in town, thanks to a menu designed by consulting chef Johnny Church. 


Related image

Standouts include Fish & Chips made from North Atlantic haddock with just a light coating of batter, and a cottage pie stuffed with wine-braised short rib. 

If cocktails and privacy are more your thing, grab a seat at the speakeasy-ish "trophy bar" in the corner.  

Ada's

Image result for ada's tivoli village

410 S. Rampart Blvd.
(Tivoli Village)
Las Vegas
(702) 463-7433


After scoring one of the best new restaurants of 2018 with Esther's Kitchen, James Trees keeps on pace -- and even ups his game -- with Ada's at Tivoli Village. 

Those familiar with Esther's will recognize the vibrant pasta dishes, fresh baked bread served with anchovy butter, and intriguing yet affordable wine list. 

But... pizza is the main attraction here, prepared in an open custom kitchen that adds plenty of energy to a light, casual dining room. 

Image result for ada's tivoli village ice cream

James Trees and his team perfected their own recipe with flour sourced from Utah that's less than two weeks old. 

Prepared with a higher-than-average amount of salt and olive oil (and natural starters in place of commercial yeast), the final result has a crunchy bottom and chewy bread-like crown. 

As the other signature item, ice cream thrives with fresh flavors. 

Image result for ada's ice cream

The chocolate chip spearmint, for example, uses five pounds of mint leaves for every two gallons. 

Round out any meal with a cocktail from the roaming gin cart and a salad made with ingredients sourced just steps away at the Tivoli Village farmers’ market.  

Locale

Image result for locale restaurant mountain's edge

47995 Blue Diamond Road  Suite 106
(Mountain's Edge)
Las Vegas)
(702) 330-0404

https://www.localelv.com/

It gives the growing Mountain's Edge community a dining destination of its own that isn't part of a chain.

Local produce suppliers announced by name on the menu. 

Chicken is ordered intact from Bo Bo Farms in New York and butchered in-house. 

It makes for a tender Pollo al Forno -- cast-iron roasted in the pizza oven and served with the claw attached, as if beckoning you to come eat it. 

There are even more reasons to love almost every dish -- the trio of dipping sauces for the fresh mozzarella, the onion marmalade that sweetens the fried pork cheek, the bright burst of fresh mint in the braised rabbit ravioli. 

Yet the biggest surprise is the limited presence of steaks on the menu. 

That could change in the future, since the restaurant has an eye on opening a dry-aging facility down the line. 

For now, the grass-fed Cape Grim strip from Tasmania more than makes up for it. 

By the way, it's pronounced "low-cal-eh."

To do so, he traveled to the village of Sanuki, Japan, to learn from Udon Master Mr. Minemoto, and has imported machinery to make the noodles, as well as ingredients from the area. 

Ordering is cafeteria style and a display of sample dishes when you enter helps your selection.

Café Sanuki is located at 4821 Spring Mountain Road facing Decatur Blvd

It is open daily for lunch and for dinner at 5:30 p.m. with a break between the meals.

IMPOSSI-BOWL BURGER DEBUTS AT BROOKLYN 



BOWL



Brooklyn Bowl at the The Linq Promenade has a seriously sustainable upgrade to its menu with the addition of The Impossi-bowl Burger



It is the fourth location in Las Vegas to offer the carnivore-duping plant-based patty by Impossible Foods made from all-natural ingredients, including wheat, coconut oil and potatoes. 

The key is in the heme, an ingredient found in plants but that is also particularly abundant in meat. This is what makes the meat sizzle with that distinctive meaty aroma and flavor.

Brooklyn Bowl, a LEED Certified green building, has placed sustainability high on its list of priorities since it opened in March 2014. 

Compared to cows, the Impossi-bowl uses 95 percent less land, 74 percent less water and creates 87 percent less greenhouse gas emissions, so it is a natural fit for the eco-conscious venue.

  1. Siverton buffet gets very crowded and I would advise you to get in line at approximately 10:45am in order to be seated at the time the buffet opens at 11:00am.

    If one gets there later, the restaurant fills and as a result, the waiting time to seated will take from 45 minutes to one hour.

    1. My waiting experience at Siverton is not very good...over 1 hour for lunch. I lost my appetite once I had a table.

  2. I have been using Restaurant.Com since arriving in LV and it's a fabulous site with wonderful discounts on excellent restaurants! The one thing I noticed was that it is important to read the "restrictions" so that you know exactly what you are doing. Thank you for the information on this and other bargain dining.
    While I'm commenting I would like to say THANK YOU for providing a site to residents in Sun City that is positive in every way. I left college years ago and certainly do not need negative comments, particularly name pointing, at residents that i have met at various venues. Shamefully, this happens here and as a relatively new resident, I find it inexcusable. Praise in public and admonish in private would be the professional way to handle things.
    Good luck with this new web site, it is interesting and enjoyable. L.Wong

  3. For those who don't want to drive to Twain for Great New York Deli. There is "THE Best" New Youk Deli on the corner of Green Valley Parkway and Sunset Called Weiss's Deli. It has been there for over 30 years and by far has the best Corned Beef,Chicken Matzo Ball soup, and Chopped Liver in Las Vegas by far. Growing up with parents who ran Delis in California..I know of what I speak. Enjoy :)

  4. We went to the Rio for the Carnival Buffet. The choices are impressive and the QUALITY is excellent. This is the best bargain for a FINE experience we have seen lately. Advise everyone to try it.

    We are NOT Buffet fans, but this is truly special.

  5. 400 points - that is about $ 1.20 in point value. Think it should say 4000.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Nope, it's 400. To get the 400 points, I believe you have to push $400 though the machines to obtain them. Not sure of the actual amount, but once you get the 400 points, you get the freebie lunch. You keep the points.

    Replies
    1. 400 points means that you have to push a total of $ 400 thru the machine (makes no difference where $ are coming from - i.e. your pocket or some winning spins).
      Your REAL cost depends on your luck while playing that day and if luck is not in your side that day:
      Your food could cost you several times more than paying cash.

  7. Not at the Silverton in April. No gambing is required, nor must points be used to get the 50% specials on Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday during the month.

    Green Valley requires points, even on Senior Days. The M Requires points to get discounts as well.

    ...and Vic...well, you get a whopping 15% off of the entre, and I stress ENTREE only, if you're a resident, eat at a specific time, and on top of that, get a reduced meal portion.

    ...and here's one, no one realizes.

    Did you know that somehow, within the Vic's lease agreement, THE DISCOUNT ALSO APPLIES TO RMI EMPLOYEES....but not your guests ????
