Having just opened a couple of months ago, I expected to walk into a fresh, modern restaurant. Well, the interior is nothing like what I expected. Not that I don’t like it, though. It’s somewhat of a homage to ‘old school Vegas’, with a dimly lit, lush interior, and the songs of crooners in the background. Kind of funky and fun! Apparently the restaurant is already well known for it’s mixology; having quite an interesting variety of drinks from various eras. The waiter told us they’re getting ready to feature live entertainment; I’m assuming (and hoping) something jazzy, bluesy, or crooner-ish, to fit with the atmosphere.
While we shared one (very strong!) drink, we were here to try the food. As of right now, they’ve got quite a good deal going on, featuring both early and late happy hours with all food on the menu at half off!
Here’s what we had:
For an appetizer, we decided to try the sausage bombs. These are basically sausage egg rolls; filled with ground sausage, onion, mushroom, and accompanied with a basil aioli. The rolls were really tasty; in fact, I think they were my favorite item of the night. The basil aioli was unsurprisingly much like a pesto sauce, but a nice accompaniment.
Adam went with the lasagna, which is huge! I opted for the gnocchi bolognese, which was more than I could eat as well. The gnocchi were good, and the chianti meat sauce was quite tender, with a nice sweetness to it.
While I don’t think the food was the best Italian in town, it was good, and at half off, quite a great deal. We were here on a Saturday night, and the service was fantastic; although there weren’t too many other customers at the time. I’d certainly be willing to try them again in a few months, once they’ve had a bit more time to perfect the menu items. Hopefully they’ll still have that happy hour deal!
