    Thanks. :)

    Interesting that the review of the Italian place mentions that they do not serve meatballs. :) (Reference to the Eataly thread.)

    Feel like you should link to Sarah’s yelp reviews too :)

    Mama Bird looks interesting. May add that to my ever growing list of restaurants I say I’m going to go to then never do (looking at you, Mon Ami Gabi)

    First, thank you Westie for posting!

    Second, this is the kind of Italian restaurant that I would hate, with all those tragically trendy frou-frou dishes. And, while John Curtas calls himself "the voice of the Las Vegas food and restaurant scene", I have no trouble speaking for myself, thank you very much. The tone of the review was so condescending and obnoxious toward anyone who might prefer the more traditionally known Italian fare that it has put me off checking out any of his future reviews. Give me pasta, meatballs and noodles any day of the week over this stuff!

    I was on the yearbook staff in junior high school. I recently looked back at our work and was amused to see that every single photo caption, without exception, began with an often clunky introductory clause: "Deep in thought, freshman Joe Smith looks to ace his algebra final." "Gunning for the win, forward Steve Jones launches a three-pointer." There were...literally...no...exceptions. Seems the fellow at endoedibles was on yearbook staff too.

    He is a terrible "writer" (and I use that term loosely). I can't even look at his reviews because he doesn't seem to understand what punctuation is. Every single paragraph is one long run-on sentence. It's maddening, so I just avoid his reviews completely.

    As always, Thanks Westie for posting these... was particularly interested in the Top of the World... as many visits that I've spent time in Las Vegas, I've yet to dine here.

    For some reason I'm scared {s-word}-less to go up in that thing!

    On every trip with my wife (which is only once a year because she's not into Vegas like I am) we always say we'll go eat at the Top of the World. But I think she only would say so because she feels I want to. She's afraid of heights.

    Maybe this upcoming trip we'll find our way up there.

    Thanks Westie for the reviews. Always appreciate them.

    Thanks @westie. :clap: I always look forward to the reviews you post. A couple of weeks ago I was at Park MGM and took a peek at Nomad and it had a really cool look to it. Definitely plan trying it out during my next trip.
