Gourmet Meals can be Reasonable

April 17th, 2011 • by Sandy Zimmerman

There is a place where you can relax, take a break, and recharge

yourself.

The Hammer Bar and Grill offers the perfect down-to-earth

setting.

As the co-owner and Executive Chef, Chris Sarret explained, “We

do not have a theme.

There are no palm trees or anything like that.

I wanted to create an atmosphere where people could come in

and not feel they have to dress and just have a good time for a

minimal amount of money.  This is one of Las Vegas’ reasonable

restaurants.

This is a friendly bar with great food, what more could you want?

And you can win money too.

There is nothing wrong with that, two of my favorite things.

My partner and I try to create an atmosphere that is fun for

everybody.”

You would not expect a gourmet restaurant in a cocktail lounge,

but Chris takes a lot of pride in their food.

He is the man who prepares all of the great food himself and it

really is great.

He graduated from the famous Le Cordon Bleu School so you

have a first class chef here.

I should describe my “tasting” as dining. The shrimp were

crusted with garlic while being toasted on the grill for a crispy

taste.

The Remoulade dipping sauce and cheesy garlic bread were

perfect complement to the dish.

After eating Hammer’s shrimp, I would say, “Their food is

reasonable and WORTH EVERY BITE!

Another great reason to come to the Hammer, you can probably

find almost any game from Keno, poker, slots, Black Jack,

including 10-15 different games on every slot machine.

Change your luck by changing games with their big selection of

games from .05 cents to $5.



A Romantic Mexican Restaurant

“A Romantic Mexican Restaurant”

By Sandy Zimmerman

Most people want a special place to celebrate and enjoy a romantic evening,

but it doesn’t have to be one of the expensive restaurants.

Yes, there is a romantic Mexican restaurant!

You can dine at El Segundo Sol for a great romantic evening and

it doesn’t have to be a birthday, anniversary, or other

special occasion because they make EVERY NIGHT a special occasion.

The restaurant offers a reasonable Mexican culinary adventure.

Executive Chef Terry Lynch explained, “El Segundo Sol is

especially romantic as it feels like a Mexican honeymoon

where you walk off the Mexican beach, through a

grove of trees and into a cool beach side margarita bar!

I think the atmosphere is truly romantic.

It is as though you went through a door and suddenly

you feel you are in Mexico without leaving Las Vegas.

You would not find anything like this on the Las Vegas Boulevard strip.

A lot of our food and drinks are meant to be shared,

a perfect way to spend a romantic evening.”

Guacamole Girl

I love the way the guacamole is prepared.

A special Guacamole Girl mixes it right in front of you.

Tell her exactly how spicy you want it and which ingredients

should be included, then a gigantic bowl –for- two

is brought right to your table.

Chef Terry feels, “This is really a special affair.

The girl is making it just for you at that moment, she will modify

the mixture to make special.

Tableside guacamole is the #1 seller in the restaurant.

You must see the sizzling fajita platter in order to believe it!

Our fajita platter is not the same as any of the other restaurants.

Tableside Sizzling Fajitas Platter

Two fajita platters are placed in front of the couple while

the server makes a presentation of pouring a

special liquid over the platters.

They hear the sizzling as steam dances around the couple.

Just the presentation is a WOW factor.

Other guests are amazed and quickly order the sizzling fajita platters.

Discover the Ultimate Dining chose El Segundo Sol as a Romantic Mexican Restaurant for great Las Vegas dining.

Yassou!

February 8th, 2011 • by Sandy Zimmerman

“Yassou”

By Sandy Zimmerman

(Photos by Sandy Zimmerman)

Everything about the Yassou Greek Grill Café is really Greek.

The owner, Peter Papas, was born in Cyprus and came to the United States with his entire family

when he was only 5 years old.

When I entered the Yassou Greek Grill Café, I wanted to start dancing!

The Greek music and the atmosphere brought back memories of Greek cafés when I was in Athens

and the Greek Islands.

Each dish I tasted at

Yassou’s Greek Grill Café

surprised me with flavorful bites

that stood out from

the usual Greek cuisine.

Chicken is more than

just chicken at Yassou.

As Peter explained,

“We spent a lot of time and money

into our special marinades.

Vegetable oil was added to olive oil to break it down because olive oil could be very strong if you use it

by itself.

We found the right formula of garlic, oregano, pepper, and a little parsley  mixed together with some

secrets for a creamy texture which holds up well when put into our food.”

Besides being a tender piece of meat, I felt their steak’s marinade created a special taste all of its own.

Peter continued, “A good product turns out to be a great product after we prepare it.

We always buy quality calamari, filet mignon, cheese from Greece, and other ingredients.

All of the meat is cut and marinated for 48 hours.

Everything that is served is really, really prime quality.

The owner Peter Papas explains,

“This is the Greek experience.

There are many nice restaurants

in Las Vegas which call themselves

Greek, but they serve Middle

Eastern cuisine.

When you taste our food,

you will taste the difference.

The value is outrageous, the quality

is amazing, and our service impeccable.”

Why did he call their restaurant Yassou?

Yassou has many meanings- welcome, to your health, good appetite, and hello.

It was his wife Rita’s idea.

Peter is always looking for something new in these challenging times he tries to be creative.

For example, a mini-combo does not cost as much as a regular combo because there is five ounce

skewer of chicken and a five ounce skewer of steak at $3.50 including rice and salad for the plate.

If the person does not have a big appetite he/she could taste both the steak and chicken without

being overly filled and still save money.

“We are finding ways for guests to save money and still have the Greek experience.

The open kitchen allows people to see us, and we can watch to make sure the guests are treated well

and are happy.

Customers can talk to us in the open kitchen.

We wanted to be part of the experience, to be able to see the people who come in, and not miss

anything.



The James Bond Wine Table

May 15th, 2010 • by admin
When you visit Del Friscos, do not miss seeing the most amazing $1.2 million dollar James Bond table. Looking like a normal table at first, Jacque touched her remote control pad and the table suddenly opened to present the James Bond OO7 Films Wine Collection. Eighteen magnums of Cabernet wine from Napa Valley wineries each represent different Bond films. These one- of-a kind bottles are each laser-edged.
