New Express Restaurant Opens

The new Sweet Tomatoes Express opened Monday in Henderson.

The new restaurant uses the same fresh salad and soup concept as the regular all-you-can-eat Sweet Tomatoes buffet but instead customers will choose what they want on a salad while an employee builds it.  They get the completed meal in a to-go container. Besides custom salads, the menu includes macaroni and cheese, bread and freshly baked cookies.

The first week the restaurant is open guests will also get a chance at a free drink. The first 10 customers every day for the next week will get a reusable Sweet Tomatoes Express cup. They can use it to get free beverages on return visits throughout September. The restaurant is also giving away gift cards and free meals.  

The new Sweet Tomatoes Express is at Eastern Avenue and Horizon Ridge Parkway.

Layers Branches Out with Cafe Offerings, but Bakery Fare Still True Indulgence

Critic: service is sparse, but the food makes up for it.

This has to be heartening for restaurant owners everywhere: a business that started out very small (as a bakery) moves and branches out slightly larger (as a bakery and cafe) and manages to weather the recession.

Local Pizza Joint Named Best Pizza in the State

Local Pizza Joint Named Best Pizza in the State

Las Vegans have long known that Metro Pizza offers some of the best pizza in the city but according to the editors of Food Network Magazine the local chain is also the best pizza in the state.

The Mulberry Street is the best pie according to the magazine. The pizza features breaded eggplant and ricotta cheese. The editors spent six months trying to find the best pies around the country from the basics like sausage and cheese to more elaborate concoctions like the Wild Nettle and Pecorino Pizza in California. All that mattered was that the pizza was delicious. The entire list is available in the magazine's September issue which goes on sale August 9.

Many restaurants have suffered in our economy but Metro Pizza has done well, in July it started work on its eighth restaurant in the valley's northwest side. That new location is expected to open next year.

Restaurant Critic: SETTEBELLO Remains Surpassingly Superior

Restaurant critic John Curtas says neighborhood Italian joint is a must visit.

On the rare occasion when ELV is forced to venture over one mile east of the Strip, that very fact has been known to throw him into a dithering tailspin. Something akin to the heebie jeebies crossed with snarling disgust, if you will. Between the characterless “neighborhoods,” poor planning (“let’s put all our retail on a single, bottle-necked road”), insane traffic, monochromatic houses, and dearth of  good eats, he is one unhappy camper whenever even the thought of traveling toward Sunset and Sunset crosses his mind. (For the uninitiated, there is truly an intersection denoted as such – yet another testament to the lame brains we elect.)
