New and Noteworthy in Las Vegas


By Heather Turk

There’s a new dining hot spot on the Las Vegas Strip. Located between New York-New York and Monte Carlo, The Park features several diverse dining options, making it a place guests will want to visit again and again regardless of whether or not they’re going to an event at T-Mobile Arena.

The perfect place to unwind with a couple of beers, this laid-back American beer hall features more than 20 lagers and ales on draft as well as an extensive selection in bottles and cans. Guests can kick back with a refreshing brew like the Stiegl Grapefruit Radler while playing a game of Connect Four, Cornhole or Jenga Giant. There’s also a food counter serving a variety of items that pair well with beer, like tender rotisserie meats and succulent sausages. The Warm Pretzel and Beer Cheese Dip in particular is a must, as is the juicy ½ Free Range Chicken.


This Orange County favorite serves a variety of sweet and savory waffle creations, from its Original Fried Chicken & Waffle sandwich to its heavenly Crème Brûlée dessert waffles stuffed with seasonal fruit. No matter which items you choose, taste buds are sure to be impressed by the airy waffles and flavorful fillings. There’s also a couple of fried chicken and waffle skillets on the menu like the spicy Nashville Hot, which comes with a cheddar-bacon waffle biscuit. Guests can wash everything down with one of the restaurant’s yummy shakes or pure cane sugar sodas—the root beer is especially delicious!

One of the Strip’s best new restaurants, this stylish Japanese eatery is as fun as it is tasty. Featuring servers who double as entertainers, Millennials are sure to love the party atmosphere, whether they’re watching their servers “Gettin’ Jiggy wit It” or having a good old-fashioned *NSYNC versus Backstreet Boys dance-off. The fare is equally delightful, offering an array of playful Japanese favorites. While specialty rolls like the Volcano Roll (eel, cream cheese, avocado, spicy snow crab and scallops baked with a spicy dynamite sauce) take center stage, non-sushi diners will find a variety of dishes sure to please their palates as well. Be sure to try the luscious ROK Chicken drizzled with a tangy teriyaki sauce and don’t forget to save room for the Sata Andagi: Japanese donut holes served with an Asian pear dipping sauce.
