Eat These Tonight – Stone Crab Claws at THE FLAME

Eat These Tonight – Stone Crab Claws at THE FLAME

Curtas: stuff your face with seafood before the First Friday party.

Our topic this morning will be where to eat downtown on First Fridays, but we suggest you make a beeline to The Flame first, to get a pound of these before the festivities start, and while the getting is good.

OLIVE GARDEN Comes On Strong

John Curtas has a little bit of April 1 fun with his readers.

Eating History at EL SOMBRERO

Eating History at EL SOMBRERO

Curtas: an old staple still does the classics as well as the day it opened.

They don’t make ‘em like El Sombrero any more. Every town, hamlet and city in the Southwest used to have one, or a number of them. Little hole-in-the-wall Mexican joints with a cook and a family working away, seven days a week, rolling out tortillas, pureeing chilies and dishing up the food of their homeland for folks of all stripes.

Downtown 3rd Farmers Market Kicks Off

Downtown 3rd Farmers Market Kicks Off

Curtas: even without its full lineup, the market looks like a winner.

Something extraordinary started Friday morning in downtown Las Vegas: a confluence of fresh food and fun that might prove every bit as revolutionary as anything going on at the Mob Museum or the Smith Center. And it did so in something of a false start, in an ad hoc location, with only a fraction of the vendors that will one day make the Downtown 3rd Farmers Market a happening every chef and foodie in town will want to attend.
