Congratulations to all involved in finally putting the RESTAURANT MORIMOTO together. It’s taken several years; first it was to take the place of the Japanese restaurant Japonaise at The Mirage which never pushed through, and when the Shibuya space at the MGM Grand became available, it was a done deal.

When I finally cornered Morimoto-San at his opening I asked him in Japanese what all the delay was about and he only said seiji politics!

LVFNBPro Editorial Director and BJ’s Henderson General Manager Jaimie Uphoff join in celebrating one of the hottest beer styles—barrel-aged beers—which were featured at BJ’s beer dinner last month. For a full reporting on the beers and dishes that were paired, see Bob’s What’s Brewing column here.

LVFNBPro Editorial Director Bob Barnes sat down with Sous Chef Jeremy Chandler to try the new menu items at Public School 702 at Downtown Summerlin and was so impressed that he just had to write a spotlight article on the talented young chef. Pictured here are Chef’s Swordfish Ban Mi Sandwich and Eggs Benedict Pizza. Learn all about Chef Jeremy and his restaurant’s new menu items here.
