Vegas' newest menus, stores, bars and restaurants
There’s always something new, fresh and fab in Las Vegas, whether it’s a restaurant, a store, bar or attractions.
Lately, there have been a boatload of new restaurants opening, and others refreshing their décor and menus. Michael Mina Bellagio recently reopened—the outer lounge has an updated feel, and the private dining room has a spectacular view of the conservatory outside (which also recently installed a seasonal Japanese theme in the garden). A market-fresh approach to seafood means that night’s offerings are displayed on the way to the dining room. And the seafood menu will change depending on what’s freshest, from crab to tuna.
Around the corner from Michael Mina, next to the spa, Juice Press just opened its first Vegas location, with a variety of organic, vegan smoothies and bowls that are super popular on the East Coast. Custom order those items from a menu board with tons of possible add-ins from chia seeds to blueberries and goji berries. And although one of those creative bowls could fuel you up all day, you might want to try the avocado toast. It's as pretty as it is tasty. No time to stop? Get grab and go items like fresh juices from the cooler. Vegan chocolate chip cookies are delish, too.
PBR Rock Bar and Grill at Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood Resort moved its iconic mechanical bull to a location in the bar area where passersby can check out the action through a huge window. In the redone dining area, trendy pallet-wood cladding covers walls and pretty booths line the area. New family-friendly menu items include baked ziti, chicken and waffles, French toast that could pass as a dessert on its own and a selection of wild shakes with crazy toppings.
At the Palms, where an extensive renovation of the resort itself has meant several new venues, casual Asian eatery Send Noodles just opened its doors. Grand opening Memorial Day weekend are Clique Hospitality's new, upscale APEX Social Club and Camden Cocktail Lounge, where mixologist Eric Hobbie has created a slate of inventive items like the Pinkies Up, where presentation is nearly as important as the drink.
