A beautiful space and a lively scene with music plus passed hors d’oeuvres, Simon Hospitality Group’s Standard & Pour officially opened its doors on August 24th 2016, but for a select group of friends and family the events of one night prior spoke to a space ready to light Henderson on fire with the sort of creative cuisine featured at Carson Kitchen in a larger space with more sophisticated décor.
Headed by Cory Harwell and reinventing the old Firefly on South Eastern into something chic and fresh, first bites at S&P consisted of small bites from a clever menu using Simon’s idea of refinement neets accessibility, the silky Scallop kissed with briny capers sure to be a hit amongst those looking for light bites or appetizers to go along with cocktails, a Tomato Salad with soft white Cheese rich in herbs alongside crisp rounds of Radish.
As much a ‘fun’ menu as it is a serious foray into new multicultural ideas, other menu highlights look to be the Wellington-style Escargot and Korean Pancake Tacos, both of them joining a clever riff on Firefly’s signature Bacon-wrapped Dates plus a briny Oyster cooked crisp atop spicy Egg puree and smoke infused Trout Roe.
Now serving 4pm till 11pm, but with likely plans for midday meals as the word of Standard & Pour grows, post-sunset crowds will be happy for the cool weather pending as the restaurant additionally offers an outdoor patio for wining and dining, the privilege of a second floor setting allowing for an excellent Strip view.
