Hot Hostesses Celebrate the Top 25 Essential Restaurants of Las Vegas

In honor of us reaching the halfway point of EATING LAS VEGAS – The 50 Essential Restaurants, our staff thought a celebration was in order. And by “celebration” we mean posting more pictures of the incandescently torrid, steamy, loosen-you-collar caliente hostesses we’ve been meeting lately.

Leading off, we have Julia:

…who always greats you with a smile at Rose.Rabbit.Lie.

But RRL is so trés chaud these days, one hot hostess is not enough. That’s why Samantha and Kassidy:

…are always on hand at a second hostess desk to lead you to your table among the jugglers and acrobats that seem to accost you at every turn. (To be fair, many seem to enjoy the festivities here, but we think all the noise just distracts you from Wes Holton’s exceptional food.)

If, like ELV, it’s serenity you seek with your sustenance, then we suggest a seating by Hailey:

…at Chef Johnny Church’s MTO Cafe downtown.

Regardless of your savory or sweet sagaciousness, all four of these gals saucily scan and scamper to safeguard your satisfaction preceding whatever saturnalia you seek.

And for that, we salute them.

Hot Hostess Ary Wonders Where CARSON KITCHEN Will Be in the 50 Essential Restaurants of Las Vegas?

ELV note: We temporarily take a break from our Top 50 countdown to bring you Aryanna of Carson Kitchen. This is Ary’s second appearance on Eating Las Vegas, and if she keeps bringing her high level of hostess professionalism to restaurants we love, it will not be her last.

Like ELV, Aryanna looks askance:

….at those who use this Web site to self-promote or grind personal axes.

But unlike George (one of our most astute and valued “regs”), we can’t quite bring ourself to dismiss the whiners and half-wits entirely:

John, you should ban these Yelp tards from the site. Particularly when it’s someone who appears to be riding on the coin of his high roller friends and not the one who’s paying. He didn’t even comment about the food or wine, just whined. Personally, I’ve always had a great meal at Carnevino and B&B.

Our underlying mission has always been to incite informed conversation about good food. As long as there is even a modicum of substance to a comment (however slight) we will let it stand. Our only inviolable rule is: No Witless Profanity.

Even Yelpers (poor, merit-less, opinion-holders that they are) are welcome.

Spammers, however, are not. People who spam other people’s Web sites should be shot on sight (figuratively speaking).

There, I said it.
