Dining at Sugercane In Las Vegas

Conveniently located on restaurant row in the Venetian/ Palazzo property in Las Vegas, Sugarcane is an elevated but still casual dining experience. I’ve dined here once, and would definitely come again to try more dishes.

Here is what I learned about the restaurant from their website: “Globally-inspired small plates come from three kitchen concepts – an open fire grill, raw bar and traditional kitchen – overseen by award-winning Executive Chef & Partner Timon Balloo, inviting guests to “kick back, eat well, and stay awhile.”  Embarking on a quest to celebrate the simple pleasures in life – eating well and celebrating with friends – the restaurant focuses on a “shared experience.” Sugercane’s raw bar grill’s menu ranges from shareable small plates from our three kitchen concepts to more hardy fare with our large plates”.

Here is how my experience went:

Staff: The hostess was fine, the servers were great, and the manager was amazing! We had a party of 6 and he took care of us all and was extremely attentive the entire time.

Atmosphere: Vegas-like (Read: dark and kinda sexy), but more relaxed. We appreciated the chill vibes as our party had been in Vegas for an entire week for a trade show and our mind and bodies were hurting by the end of the week! Also, wait time was very short for a Friday night – possibly because they have recently opened?

Food: Started our meal with some kind of rose slushy drinks (on the house) which were fantastic. We ordered several dishes from their tapas style menu and I remember enjoying everything.  A few items that really stood out that I can still recall are as follows:
*Blue fin tuna tartare (yuzu kosho, avocado purée & sesame seeds)- Must order
*Smoked fish dip ( served w/ potato chips)- Dip was yummy, but chips were a bit burnt
*Whole roasted chicken (truffle marble potato, wild mushrooms) – Simple, but very flavorful
*Nutella sundae (nutella ice cream, nutella hazelnut brownie, cracker jacks)- LOVED it!!

Be sure to stop by if you’re looking for a non-stuffy place with good drinks and shareable food!

Pizza Delivery at Vdara from Little Italy

We tried Little Italy Pizza for the first time last May when we visited Vegas for a quick family get together. We were meeting lots of family members in our suite at Vdara and this place conveniently delivered. Though I love the suites at Vdara, the hotel isn’t exactly in the middle of the strip where all the restaurants in the world are open all day and night. Also, my sister’s two little toddlers were present, and I’d way rather snuggle and play with them inside the hotel room than dress up and explore Vegas for the billionth time!

Little Italy Pizza Dinner:

There are so many picky eaters in our family with varying taste buds, but pizza is unanimously loved by all. Realizing that they serve halal food, we ordered a meat lovers pizza and a supreme pizza that has meat and veggies. They are super generous with their toppings and the quality of the ingredients totally shines through. Cheese was oooey gooeeey, but we all commented that the crust could have been a little crispier. Pizza was still really good overall though! In case people in your party are not in the mood for pizza, Little Italy does have several other specialty items on their menu  such as chicken wings, burgers, pasta subs and salads.

Two large pizzas and a bottle of sprite cost about $50 with delivery fee and tip. Vdara alike most hotels wouldn’t let the delivery person come up to the room but they gave us a call when they were on the premises and requested us to come down – pretty convenient. Fair prices, tasty pizzas, and quick delivery – Littly Italy did not disappoint!

Fun fact about this place – they are open for delivery or carryout 24/7.
