On April 20th @ 9PM, Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown will be airing it's Las Vegas episode on CNN. Bourdain explores different sides of my hometown (yes, there's more than just The Strip). He goes to restaurants raved by the locals such as Raku, Eat., and The Bootlegger. Also, Bourdain goes to fine dining restaurants like é by José Andrés and Restaurant Guy Savoy. I am glad that the topic of the drought in Las Vegas is mentioned, which is something that cannot be ignored (conservation is important!). The people that accompany Bourdain in this episode include food author Michael Ruhlman, artist Anthony Bondi, illusionist Penn Jillette, and former mayor Oscar Goodman. Here's a preview to the Las Vegas episode or you may see it here:
After driving pass by Herbs & Rye for many years I finally went in to see what all the hype was about this place. They serve classic cocktails that were popular during the Prohibition Era and before that time like the Gothic Age (unknown-1865) and Golden Age (1865-1900): Here's an example of of some of the drinks: I loved all the drinks they made, wasn't disappointed with any of them: Herbs & Rye also serves Italian food like flatbreads , pasta, and they're known for the steaks they cook, I'll try some next time! I only had the appetite to drink: I really enjoyed my time here especially the atmosphere of a " speakeasy feel". They get busy during the weekends so if you plan to dine in, make a reservation !
