Flavortown

by Monday, January 11, 2016

Vegas really is my home away from home. I feel so alive when I’m on the strip, walking among the buzzing crowd, running from one place to another. When you’re in town as often as I am (usually for work, but I always budget personal time in), you start creating habits. When celebrity chef Guy Fieri opened a restaurant at the Linq Hotel, I knew I had to try it. Guy is all about big flavor and food with attitude (as demonstrated by his favorite word ever – FLAVORTOWN!) – and there are few things I love more than a chef who is able to translate an attitude into their dishes.
From the first time I stepped into Guy Fieri’s Vegas Kitchen & Bar {menu here}, I knew that everything I tried would be an adventure. From deconstructed pizzas to burgers that are so unique it’s intimidating (but order bravely, you’ll be happy you did) the menu is just plain fun. I’ve been going for lunch routinely since they opened – including my most recent trip over New Years Eve.

Hands down, my favorite menu items are The Ultimate Asian Chicken Wraps and the Italian Deli Salad. If I’m feeling a bit naughty, I’m definitely gettingΒ the Quad Fries (a secret menu item that combines all three of their famous fries into one delicious – and huge – side order.) The decor is superΒ approachable and fun – never stuffy and definitely a place you feel comfortable making friends with the cool folks at the table next to you. In the summer, I could easily sit on their patio for hours, chatting with friends, laughing and sipping mojitos.

For my afternoon lunch date with husband I kept it comfortable, but elevated. I pulled out my Eloquii leather culottes and paired them with this turtleneck sweater that I’ve been living in (it keeps me so warm!). Paired with some fun heels and a tiny crossbody, I was ready to chow down on some lettuce wraps!
