The Nove @ the Palms was a pleasant surprise to me. I didn't expect it to be so elegant and modern, and their Italian food was the same too! Some items I tried was a thin crispy pizza with mozzarella di bufala as the cheese topping and a rigatoni dish - I enjoyed eating this one because it was rather spicy! I had never had a Italian dish like that at a restaurant before. I thought they accidentally put too much spices in the sauce, but realized they couldn't have. The spices added a nice 'kick' to my mouth! If you're looking to eat somewhere with an awesome view of the Strip, eat at Nove! Trust me you won't be disappointed :D
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 !
