I am not one for cooking at home too often. My husband and I love going out to dinner and trying new Las Vegas restaurants. The Valley has had several new restaurants open up shop and I am dying to try them out and of course see how they would work for Las Vegas weddings.
Recently, I went out a with a few girl friends and we tried the new Carson Kitchen in downtown Las Vegas and let me tell you… it was beyond amazing. I crave it every day now. With a menu that will attract any taste from starting plates of bacon jam and tempura green beens to entrees of short rib sliders, steak or burgers, you can not choose wrong. Prices that are less than $20 per plate, a specialty cocktail menu to impress and the quaint intimacy of a small restaurant, this place is a must go.
I have been a fan of Giada De Laurentiis for quite some time and when I heard she was opening her very first restaurant here in Las Vegas, Giada, it had me jumping for joy. I have yet to try this place out, but from the looks of it I will be loving it from the moment I step in the door. Giada has amazing views of the Las Vegas Strip and is located inside the new boutique hotel, The Cromwell. With a capacity of seating 260 guests, I have a feeling that this is going to be the new hot place for rehearsal dinners and large receptions.
Red Rock Hotel & Casino recently did a little restaurant face lift and added several new dining locations. Mercadito is for sure on my places to go in the near future. With a recent opening of just yesterday, I believe this is going to be a new fun place for all of those Summerlin people to dine.
