Local eaters love to take advantage of the twice-yearly Restaurant Week fundraising event for Three Square food bank to try out new restaurants or revisit old faves. The table is set once again for Restaurant Week’s return August 23 through 30; check out all participants at helpoutdineoutlv.org or peep these recommendations from yours truly:
Zenshin This new Asian spot at South Point is offering up two courses and a dessert for $50.13 with lots of choices. How about lobster potstickers, a filet with grilled garlic shrimp and vegetables, and mini-malasadas (Portuguese doughnuts) with cream custard? South Point, 797-8538.
N9NE Steakhouse Lots of people use Restaurant Week to hit up a favorite chophouse and save some dough. How long has it been since you hit N9NE? It’s still delicious, and this $50.13 dinner offers a tasting of onion soup and Caesar salad before a prime ribeye with all the extras and dessert. Palms, 933-9900.
Ogden’s Hops & Harvest The famous burger at Bradley Ogden’s Caesars Palace restaurant was $20 by itself, and well worth it. Get the updated version this week, plus a Caesar or heirloom tomato salad and Ogden’s legendary butterscotch pudding, all for $20.13. Tivoli Village, 476-3964.
