Big B’s Texas BBQ Catering

Lean Brisket, Fatty Brisket, Pulled Pork

Beef Hot Links, Jalapeno & Cheese Hot Links, Smoked Turkey Breast, Smoked Chicken

BBQ Beans

Mac & Cheese

Creamed Corn

Housemade Chocolate Cake

Housemade Banana Pudding

Now open from 11:00am until 9:00pm daily at Suite 110 of 6115 South Fort Apache Road, and Sin City’s best place for Barbecue ever since January 2016, it was ten minutes prior to lunch that the smell of Big B’s Texas BBQ began to drift from the conference room, staff quick to arrive for what was once again an overabundance of smoked Meat, housemade Desserts and Sides.

Already an office favorite, and even more convenient now that owners Brian Buechner and Natalia Badzjo have taken over the former Andre’s Bistro & Bar, guests this Wednesday found familiar favorites hot and fresh, the inclusion of all necessary plates, utensils and serviceware a given just as it has always been.

Texas through and through, wood driven up from the Lone Star State just one reason why Big B’s Brisket and Turkey outpace growing competition, there was really no surprise when Macaroni and Cheese as well as Hot Links were quickly depleted, and with the addition of Sausage speckled by Jalapeno and Cheddar those craving extra spice also got their fix.

Not reliant on gimmicks, just real-deal ‘cue at a fair price, additional Meats included Pulled Pork and Chicken, the latter a special request that was shockingly juicy while BBQ Beans and Creamed Corn performed admirably as side dishes.

Upping the ante with former Marché Bacchus Chef Amanda Hamilton at location #2, the opportunity to bring Big B’s Texas BBQ across town not left to chance by a team who has always adhered to high standards, Dessert consisted of classic Banana Pudding and dense Chocolate Cake, both upgrades on the Restaurant’s already delicious collection of Cakes and Pies.

N/A: Making it blog policy to not ‘rate’ places based on catering alone it was a disastrous lunch from Famous Dave’s that got the #supportlocal idea going in May of 2018, Big B’s Texas BBQ immediately stepping up and becoming a go-to both then and now with the experience never less than exemplary.

RECOMMENDED: Fatty Brisket, Hot Links, Smoked Turkey, Mac & Cheese, BBQ Beans, Cream Corn, Chocolate Cake, Banana Pudding.

AVOID: N/A.

TIP: Available via Yelp! Online Ordering, GrubHub, EZCater or calling the Restaurant directly the staff at Big B’s makes catering easy and efficient in addition to offering great value on the dollar.

ShangHai Taste, Las Vegas NV

ShangHai Taste

Sheng Jian

Kao Fu

Traditional Shanghai Xiao Long Bao

Crab Yolk Xiao Long Bao

Shanghai Scallion Pancake

Steamed Vegan Dumplings

Shanghai Fried Rice Cake

Cold Bean Curd Noodles with Housemade Scallion Oil

Noodle with Scallion Oil and Shanghai Soy Sauce

Fish Wonton Soup

Shanghai Duck

House Fried Rice with Shrimp

Offering everything from locally owned Weera Thai Kitchen to Sin City’s first outpost of international Dessert chain 85 Degree Bakery Café, Shanghai Plaza is a brightly-lit beacon, and if one is looking for a true “flagship” in the plaza at 4266 Spring Mountain Road the standout so far has to be Chef Jimmy Li’s ShangHai Taste.

Tucked inside Suite 104 of a two-story complex on the corner of Arville Street and Spring Mountain Road, it is upon entry that eyes are immediately drawn to Chinese-born Chefs working inside the restaurant’s glass prep-room, and with Chef Li’s time at 3 Villages, 1900 Asian Cuisine and Niu Gu well-known to fans the fact that everything on-site is made from scratch should come as no surprise.

Seating approximately ~40 guests from 10am daily, pacing still a work in progress but improving daily under the tutelage of business partner Joe Muscaglione, it is upon checking in at the hostess stand that guests are led to one of eight tables, the largest able to comfortably seat ten beneath speakers playing everything from Shanghainese hip-hop and mandopop to hardcore punk or electronic dance music.

Smart to call-ahead, or use Yelp! Online Check-In, those required to wait will discover several unique imports next door, and by the time one is done perusing beauty products alongside quirky confections a table will be ready with full view of ShangHai Taste’s modern kitchen.

Affordable without skimping on Ingredients, all thanks to Chef Li and Joe Muscaglione’s hard work, a distinctive feel is ensured by the fact that almost every single item on-site is imported from or near Shanghai, and with Condiments as well as Tea and Water present on every table all one needs to do after seating is figure out which delicious dishes to order.

Sharing several Shanghainese favorites, but keeping the menu fairly concise in comparison to many, fans of Soup Dumplings, or XLB, will be happy to know ShangHai Taste’s set a high standard, and whether one prefers Pork, Crab or even Gluten Free the textures and flavors are great, as too are the unique fried version entitled Sheng Jian.

Able to accommodate most dietary preferences, Shanghai Scallion Pancakes crispy and desirable to all but vegans, those eschewing all Animal products will likely gravitate to Steamed Dumplings filled with Herbs, though far more interesting bites are found in the form of steamed Wheat Gluten Kao Fu with Mushrooms and Cold Bean Curd Noodles with Housemade Scallion Oil.

Built on family recipes handed down to Chef Li, his House Fried Rice with choice of Protein always a crowd-pleaser, Soups are additionally a good choice during colder months, the housemade Tofu a favorite carried over from Niu Gu while Fish Wontons eat lighter than versions filled with Pork or Beef without tasting “fishy” at all.

Undoubtedly most popular for Xiao Long Bao, though selling out early of Angus Short Rib and Shanghai Style Pork Ribs on this particular Saturday, it was in brined Duck slick with Soy that solace was found, a similar sort of flavor found amidst Veg-friendly Noodles, though even more delicious were the Stir-fried Rice Cakes traditionally known as Chao Nian Gao.

FOUR AND A HALF STARS: Only open for two-weeks, Chef Jimmy Li and Joe Muscaglione could have never anticipated this much business so soon, but for those with a modicum of patience please rest assured that such well-prepared Cuisine at an affordable price is more than worth the effort – even if it requires an Uber both ways from the Strip

RECOMMENDED: Sheng Jian, Kao Fu, XLB, Shanghai Fried Rice Cake, Cold Bean Curd Noodles with Housemade Scallion Oil, Fish Wonton Soup.

AVOID: Thus far doing twice the amount of business originally projected, menu items do sell out from time-to-time, and arriving toward the tail-end of Lunch or Dinner is thus not currently recommended.

TIP: Open daily from 10:00am until 3:00pm and 5:00pm until 10:00pm. Call 702-570-6363 or hop on Yelp! to Check-in and save time.

Rosallie [24,] Las Vegas NV

Rosallie Le French Café

Galette des Rois

Cinnamon Roll with Frosting

Crunch Chocolate House

Located just north of the I-215 on South Rainbow Boulevard, Rosallie Le French Café represents a work of passion from Jonathan Pluvinet, the native of Nice whose family owned a similarly named restaurant back home.

Already Las Vegas’ premier bakery for French Pastry, guests visiting in January can celebrate Epiphany (January 6th) all month long with a traditional Galette des Rois, which is served to mark the day the Three Kings visited the infant Jesus.

Sold for just $17, and enough to feed 4-8, diners can expect the royal treatment when enjoying this traditional tart made with laminated Pastry, Butter and ground Almonds, but be sure keep an eye open for the Fete des Rois, a small object made of porcelain, placed inside.

Never lacking for choices, whether savory or sweet, one must also pay close attention to the counter display on entry, Almond Croissant always mandatory while additional highlights from a recent visit included Baker/Manager Christophe’s frosted Cinnamon Roll and the all-new Crunch Chocolate House that is nothing shy of a textural masterpiece.

FIVE STARS: Only getting better with time, from world-class Pastries to Tartines and Sandwiches, Rosallie remains a cozy respite with the sort of environment, service and Cuisine one simply doesn’t find many places these days.

RECOMMENDED: Cinnamon Roll, Crunch Chocolate House and calling 702-998-4121 a day in advance to assure availability of the Galette des Rois.

AVOID: N/A.

TIP: Follow @rosallielefrenchcafe on Social Media for specials at both locations.

Bobby’s Burger Palace, Las Vegas NV

Bobby’s Burger Palace

Fries – Bacon, Cheddar, Scallions, Fry Sauce

Buttermilk Onion Rings – Ranch Dipping Sauce

Sweet Potato Fries – Honey Mustard-Horseradish Sauce

Palace Classic Burger – American Cheese, Lettuce, Tomato, Red Onion, Potato Chips

Canadian Burger – White Cheddar Cheese, Canadian Bacon, Maple-Mustard Sauce, Potato Chips

Bobby’s Veggie Burger – BBQ Wild Mushrooms, Chickpeas, Quinoa, American Cheese, Romaine, Tomato, Pickles, Red Pepper Chipotle Mayo

Bobby Blue + Bacon Burger – Blue Cheese, Bacon, Lettuce, Tomato, Potato Chips

Cookies ‘n Cream Shake with Whipped Cream

Pistachio Shake with Whipped Cream

Dark Chocolate Shake with Whipped Cream

Banana Nutella Shake with Whipped Cream

Now with a dozen locations, but only one west of the Mississippi River, Bobby’s Burger Palace can probably be considered a chain, yet from the moment one enters the doors at 3750 South Las Vegas Boulevard the experience goes well beyond what one might expect from a “Quick-casual” concept.

Soon celebrating six years serving Sin City, and currently one of three local Restaurants from Food Network superstar Bobby Flay, it is on a unique piece of pavement between Aria and Park MGM that guests will find a modern space flanked by Starbucks and Pinkberry, its attachment technically to Waldorf Astoria though there is no formal affiliation.

Built on Chef Flay’s love of grilling as well as travel, an affordable menu running from Philly to Dallas and LA by way of themed Burgers, it is on entry that guests will find a counter to the left and bar right, the former with a line immediately after an 11:00am opening while the latter offers full service including Frozen Margaritas, Beer and Wine.

Fast paced but not rushed, several guests taking a moment to peruse their options before selecting everything from Condiments to temperature, it was through a friendly middle-aged woman that an order was placed, her smile carrying over to everyone from servers to bartender and kitchen staff.

Able to watch each item’s preparation through a window, the General Manager expediting orders with every Sandwich and Side photogenically stacked, it was perhaps ten minutes after seating that the whole order arrived simultaneously, hand-cut Fries immediately impressing with their ability to remain crisp amongst Cheese and Bacon while Sweet Potatoes tasted great with the accompanying sauce, but better with Bobby’s Chipotle Ketchup.

Often disappointed by Onion Rings, though not at BBP where thick cuts and adherent Buttermilk Batter marry to form Las Vegas’ very best, it was after pictures that Burgers were tasted, a medium-Fat grind providing ample juiciness whether dressed classic or beneath Bacon and crumbly Blue Cheese.

Given the choice to “get crunchified” at no additional cost, handmade Potato Chips without a lot of salt adding both visual appeal and texture, it was after devouring January’s “Burger of the Month” with Canadian Bacon and Maple-Mustard Sauce that Bobby’s “Veggie Burger” was tasted, its consistency more like that of a Sloppy Joe with a bit of heat and bold BBQ flavor.

Finishing up with four Shakes, the question of whether to add complimentary housemade Whipped Cream definitely one to reply “yes!,” the answer to which is best largely comes down to personal preference, though fans of Wendy’s Frosty will undoubtedly be spellbound by Dark Chocolate while guests seeking more subtlety may want to consider surprisingly natural Pistachio, this month’s special featuring fresh Bananas and Nutella or Fudge-streaked Cookies and Cream.

FOUR AND A HALF STARS: Holding an overall favorable impression of Bobby Flay and his concepts, the only real reason I hadn’t been to Bobby’s Burger Palace prior to Saturday was its odd location, but having now sat down to nearly a dozen items I’m happy to say I’ve been missing out. Always skeptical of “celebrity” Burger joints, what I found was very impressive Sandwiches, cooked-to-order, and made with care. I visit a lot of restaurants both foreign and domestic, but rarely do I come across a venue putting so much effort into a product under $10.

RECOMMENDED: Buttermilk Onion Rings, Fries, Canadian Burger, Bobby’s Veggie Burger, Bobby Blue + Bacon Burger, Pistachio Shake, Dark Chocolate Shake.

AVOID: Although any Restaurant playing Interpol and TV on the Radio gets an A+ for effort, a few less decibels during peak times would be ideal for guests trying to carry on a conversation without shouting.

TIP: Burger of the Month and Shake of the Month are revealed on the 1st, and guests wishing to skip the line can pre-order using #flayforall through Olo.com.

Recently celebrating a decade on Aria’s second floor, only it and The Buffet remaining since December 2009 while so much else has changed, it was at the site of last year’s best meal that a new decade got started, and once again Jean Georges Steakhouse lived up to high expectations.

Led by Chef Sean Griffin since 2015, including a renovation that upgraded décor and delivery of unparalleled Meats and Produce, guests entering Jean Georges Steakhouse are greeted first at a podium before being led to spot-lit tables, the mood upscale but never stuffy while prices track similar to other similar Restaurants that feature far less creative cuisine.

Decorated in gold, and updating the menu at least seasonally, it was as a party of four that carte blanche was given to Chef Griffin, Wine and Cocktails quickly followed by buttery Loaves of Brioche and a sizable tower of Seafood highlighted by jumbo King Crab Legs and Oysters from both coasts that paired well with housemade Mignonette.

Playing background music that is never invasive throughout the four-course feast, it was alongside the Shellfish that Sean delivered his newest Amuse, Caviar and Lemon tucked inside dainty Spinach Pasta a bite of pure luxury while Bacon-Wrapped Shrimp and Foie Gras Brûlée each balanced sweetness with a bit of heat and a smooth finish.

Using Salad as a segue to grilled Meats, the iconic Hearts of Palm and Tomatoes praised by all for its brightness while a simple Caesar and briny “Beet Greek” also performed well, it was on a large central board the two full Bones of Marrow soon arrived with gently seared Scallops and F1 Wagyu, the hybrid buttery and rich which thus relegated Jean Georges quartet of Sauces irrelevant save for as a dip for Fries.

Specifically requesting the Wagyu Brisket carved tableside, each slice of Beef from Mishima Ranch smoky and moist even before adding an unforgettable spoonful of Sauce, no guest should leave Jean Georges without a taste of the city’s best Fried Chicken, and if in season also the truffled Tempura Squash.

Refreshing the palate between bites with Mushrooms and Sprouts, the latter a particularly praiseworthy preparation with all three ingredients in harmony, Dessert saw nothing but old favorites down the line, Chef Vongerichten’s Chocolate Cake served in its classic form and followed by Cheesecake, photo-friendly Citrus and faultless Apple Pie.

FIVE STARS: As the site of 2019’s best Las Vegas meal, Jean George Steakhouse seemed an ideal spot to take the first bites of 2020, and just as prior Sean Griffin’s cooking continues to shine as a result of Ingredient sourcing and skill with no signs of slowing in terms of quality or creativity.

RECOMMENDED: Osetra Caviar and Lemon Beggars Purse, Foie Gras Brûlée, Tomato Salad, 8oz F1 Wagyu Filet, Bone Marrow, Smoked Wagyu Brisket, Crunchy Organic Chicken, Tempura Squash, Roasted Brussels Sprouts, Market Apple Pie.

AVOID: N/A.

TIP: Online Menu is currently out-of-date, and several sides were market-driven daily specials.

Best of 2019 – Meals, Savories, Sweets

Having easily defined 2018 as a year of challenges, 2019 is a far more challenging year to define. On a professional level, the prior twelve months have been the most satisfying of my life and I’m genuinely proud of my workplace for first time since leaving The Ohio State University. My career has allowed me to assist people who truly need it while (mostly) smart planning has benefited not only my future, but that of friends and family. I hope that never changes.

Personally, this year saw a 33 year journey across every NHL arena finally come to an end in St. Louis, while proceeds from bestofvegas.com writing supported two deserving charities. #supportlocal lunches and dinner programs added another $56,638 to local businesses, plus an opportunity to introduce persons who rarely step out of their “comfort zone” to things they’d never imagined eating. I also reconnected with someone I hadn’t seen in 21 years over dinner, and got to see my oldest friend for his birthday as well as other old pals during their annual trip to Sin City. Sure, there have been challenges, but compared to those of so many others I feel blessed.

What follows is a list of the most memorable meals and bites over the last 365-days, many of them literally “the best” while others may have shined brighter than they normally would have due to the circumstances. Thanks to all the Chefs, GMs and Servers involved and equally as much to those who I was fortunate enough to break Bread with.  One new rule this year, only one item per Restaurant in each category because otherwise things got a little homogeneous at the top.

The Coffee Class [2,] Las Vegas NV

The Coffee Class

Maple Taro Latte

Ethiopia Sidamo Shantewene Single Origin Pour Over from City Bean Roasters

Chicken Pot Pie – Onions, Celery, Carrots, Peas, Buttery Rosemary Biscuit

Housemade Biscuit – Orange Butter, Strawberry Balsamic Jam

Pineapple Upside Down Cake – Caramelized Pineapple & Cherry Compote, Rum Soaked Cake, Coconut Whip Cream, Caramel

Vegan Cherry Pie

Vegan Pear and Almond Tart

Salty Butterscotch Chocolate Chip Cookie

Opened in July 2019 with a promise of “extraordinary service” The Coffee Class seemed to have rushed out the gate, but having now spent five months fine-tuning the concept Kyle Cunningham’s goal of introducing locals to single origin Beans can finally be experienced as intended.

A passion project for the local real estate professional, who can frequently be found on-site educating staff and greeting customers, it is in consultation with Chef Beth Ryan-Small that the cozy yet upscale space seeks to give guests an all-day experience, the menu focused mostly on Breakfast items but also featuring everything from Pot Pie and Panini to plated Desserts.

Sleek and light in terms of decor, with a covered outdoor patio recently added and still comfortable on New Year’s Eve, it was around 1:00pm that The Coffee Class was found with all tables occupied, it’s Pastry case emptied of more popular items but the digital display still packed with choices both savory and sweet.

Much improved in terms of service, friendly Baristas behind high-end machinery charged with a variety of tasks ranging from Pour-Over and Espresso to Tea service, it was after lengthy debate that a Maple Taro Latte was requested, its smoothness particularly noteworthy atop Milk-subdued notes of Pure Maple Syrup.

Taking a window-seat after ordering, Chef Ryan-Small visibly preparing items fresh through a slot looking into The Coffee Class’ kitchen, it was not long before two styles of Biscuit arrived, the first a reference-standard Buttermilk version with housemade Butter and Jam while the latter was larger, with Rosemary, and perched atop a meaty Pot Pie.

Opting for a Single Origin V60 from Ethiopia to go with sweeter selections, City Bean Roasters of Los Angeles providing the buttery medium-roast, Beth again showed a deft hand when baking vegan with both her Cherry Pie and Pear Tart with Almonds, the former indistinguishable from something made with Butter white the latter finishes with a linger of Coconut.

Playing light music overhead, and offering guests plenty of workspace complete with USB Chargers and complimentary Wi-Fi, it is replacing summer’s Roasted Pineapple and Carrot Muffin that guests will find Pineapple Upside Down Cake, a combination of Caramelized Pineapple and Cherry Compote with Rum sweet yet balanced while Chef Ryan-Small’s Salty Butterscotch Chocolate Chip Cookie remains one of Sin City’s best in terms of taste as well as texture.

FOUR AND A HALF STARS: Recently celebrating 5 months at 8878 South Eastern Avenue, and a far more fluid operation than shortly after opening, The Coffee Class pairs well-sourced Beans with a menu from Chef Beth Ryan-Small for one of the area’s best under-the-radar experiences.

RECOMMENDED: Maple Taro Latte, Chicken Pot Pie, Housemade Biscuit, Pineapple Upside Down Cake, Vegan Cherry Pie, Salty Butterscotch Chocolate Chip Cookie.

AVOID: Late arrivals are likely to miss out on some of the good stuff, as Baked Goods are made in small batches to assure freshness.

TIP: 7a-8p daily, with online delivery facilitated by Grubhub and Yelp!

WHAT THE STARS MEAN: 5 World Class, 4 Excellent, 3 Good, 2 Fair, 1 Poor.
