Eating Las VegasĀ® can only spend so much time crying over spilled milk (in this case, the closing of Rosemary’s), so in honor of FORTE‘s being featured on KLAS TV’s Dishing & Dining with Denise Valdez tomorrow, we at ELV thought we’d post a few more of our tasty snaps of another meal there….including those of a couple of wayward chefs who happened upon us one night as we were polishing off some Bulgarian beer and some patatas bravas…
