DW BISTRO (Las Vegas, Nevada)
Las Vegas has so much to offer in so many different neighborhoods that whenever possible I try to get off The Strip for variety. In the Summerlin area, a little off the beaten track, lies a real winner: DW Bistro. With its contemporary black-and-white look, and appealing menu with hints of Jamaica and New Mexico, it’s quickly become a brunch hotspot (literally, given some of the spicy dishes!). Gaze out at the view past the city to distant mountains and prepare to enjoy your bottomless mimosas. Then the delights start arriving. Tuna tartare combines the kick of jalapeño/tomatillo salsa with the mellowness of avocados and a touch of yuzu foam. The amazing pastry basket holds croissants (plain and chocolate), scones, and other delights. From here, you can go spicy or soothing (or both all in one dish). Chicken flautas come with lime crema, pico de gallo, and avocado/tomatillo salsa, while the creamy coconut curry sauce of the Jamaican curry bowl still manages to pack a wallop. Get your omelet with tomatoes/goat cheese, roasted vegetables, or (we’re back to the Jamaica/New Mexico fusion here) jerk pork, and green chilis. In an atmosphere of laid back, friendly chic, it’s a great way to spice up your Las Vegas weekend. 9275 West Russell Rd., Suite 190, Las Vegas, NV. Tel: 702-527-5200. Brunch served Saturday 10 A.M. to 3 P.M., Sunday 10 A.M. to 4 P.M. www.dwbistro.com
