    I have always wanted to try this place out. Has anyone been on Sunday for brunch? Me and the wife arrive around 8 am and were thinking about hitting it up for brunch. By the time we get there it should be close to 9-9:30.

    If dinner is 10x better we could hold off and do dinner there one night. Just want to make sure we aren't missing a whole lot at brunch vs dinner.

    Thanks!!

    I was eagerly looking forward to the marrow, but when I tried it, I was underwhelmed. There just wasn't much to it. I would eat it again if it was at a buffet I was already going to, but it wouldn't be a selling point to me, and I certainly wouldn't pay for it in a restaurant.

    I was looking for a place to post this and the coupon trade thread is not where I want it to be because I'm not trading it but rather posting just for informational purposes. I was pleasantly surprised when I renewed my subscription to a Las Vegas newletter and got this beauty of a coupon included.

    The bone marrow is personally one of my FAVORITE things at WS, but I too would be hesitant to pay for it as an appetizer....not a lot on each piece, but sooo rich. WS is the best place to try it, as if you DON'T like it, it's not like you've wasted the cost of am appetizer.

    Not sure about early brunch on assortment, but I think any meal will be solid there. Plus, people either love WS, or it's a little too avant guarde (non-mainstream). I think the brunch prices would be a perfect way/price to see if you like it. Enjoy!

    Thee Wicked Spoon is my GO-TO! Brought my friends there....loved it. Brought my g/f there...loved it. Mom/brother/...loved it. It has an amazing selection of meats/sides/breakfast ,etc.At $27 it is a great option for brunch. Hell, some places will cost you $20 for a traditional breakfast with a coffee or juice...

    Fresh pressed juices, loved the fried chicken, desserts, and esp eggs benny....Ive been there 6 times in the last 3 years and have zero complaints.

    Odd I love fat, I eat the marrow out of the bone of a ham slice, but not a fan of the marrow.

    To answer the OP, I am breakfast guy, so I loved the bunch. They had house cured thick cut pork belly, omelettes and other great stuff. I liked the dinner too, esp the made to order seafood stew station.

    $15 for bottomless mimosa/Bloody mary.

    Subscribers to the Las Vegas Advisor receive the 2/1 coupon for the Wicked Spoon. Using that one coupon for the weekend dinner pays for the subscription. The additional coupons and newsletter are pure gravy. :)

    Pork belly in one of my favs! I definitely wanna try the marrow and some other "different" things I hear they put out.
    Probably do brunch here on Sunday and Monday eat at Ginseng BBQ (our absolute favorite spot)
    The kimchi soup is great at curing a hangover. Thanks for all the input everyone! Greatly appreciated.

    Ha! Love that description...I always call it "meat butter," but that works too.

    Now I am curious, did you eat it as-is, or on some of their nice breads? "As-is" would be awful, it'd be like eating butter from the stick (or a teaspoon of hot fat!)

    Oh Lord, no wonder you hated it....kind of like biting into a stick of butter....I am impressed you weren't MORE grossed out, so kudos for being a trooper :)

    On bread though, it's pretty tasty. Solo, only tell people you don't like to try it that way :eek:
