Letter of the Week
(Many remain skeptical of the price-to-value benefit of this bird)
ELV note: When he isn’t saving children’s lives, Dr. Mark is a frequent visitor to Vegas and one of our “regs.” He’s also one of those food lovers who eats to live and lives to eat, so his thoughtful opinions are always welcome, even if they happen to disagree with our own, infallible, unimpeachable, invariable finicality. To say he was less than impressed with Mr. Chow is an understatement. To say that the Mr. Chow Peking Duck Experience might be a tad heavy on the wallet, the waistline and the pretension is something he and I might be able to agree upon. Next time he’s in town, we will have to get a group and go peek in on this Peking duck together. In the meantime, read and decide for yourself.
Sometimes, things turn out just as you expect. Sometimes, they can even be far, far worse. I met up with an old friend in town on a recent Friday night. Of course, we were pondering that most important question: Where should we have dinner?
My bride and I were in your “humble burg” on Sept. 20 and left on Sept. 27 mainly to attend the Barrett-Jackson auction (as observers only) and as always to try out some of your culinary suggestions.
I thought you might be interested in my observations. We “did” three new-to-us locations; Chada Street on Spring Mountain Road, Glutton on East Carson & Tapas by Alex Stratta in Tivoli Village.
It has occurred to me that you must consistently get food prepared with much more care and quality than the average Joe, right?
