I want to give a shout to a couple of my favorite Las Vegas haunts!

Just a short distance east from Summerlin is Rosemary’s.  Located in a non-descript but upscale shopping center, Rosemary’s offers a fabulous dining experience, (I think it serves among the best food in Las Vegas!) expertly prepared by husband and wife chef/owners Wendy and Michael Jordan.  Chef Michael trained with Emeril Lagasse in New Orleans and the cuisine reflects his creole influence with dishes like hoppin’ john and cheddar grits.  Rosemary’s caters to the local crowd and has a great happy hour in the bar, half price bottles of wine on Sundays and lady’s night Wednesday  half price entrees for ladies!    I really love dining at Rosemary’s and am glad it is in the neighborhood! 

El Sombrero is a very small Mexican restaurant located in the Arts District in Downtown Las Vegas.  Housed in a VERY understated building, the El Sombrero was opened here in 1950 by the family of the current owners- 1950!  Teresa and Humberto own it now and he is the master chef and Teresa handles the often crowded dining room with a friendly manner.  I am a big fan of the tamales but the enchiladas, tacos and chile verde are on my favorite list as well.  Come early for the huevos rancheros and the chorizo and eggs as well!  The El Sombrero is a part of Las Vegas history that I hope is around for a long time to come!

  1. I couldn’t agree more about your two restaraunt selections! El Sombrero is still the place to find local attorneys, judges and Metro sneaking a bite for lunch.
