Dining news & notes: Chef Carlos Buscaglia’s new gig, Ferraro’s new menu and more

Chef Carlos Buscaglia, now running the kitchen at HEXX.

The innovative and perhaps overlooked Paris Las Vegas restaurant HEXX Kitchen + Bar has a new executive chef. Carlos Buscaglia is back on the Strip after helping to create one of the all-time great neighborhood restaurants in town, Due Forni.

Beginning June 10, Ferraro’s will feature a special prix-fixe menu for summer, four courses of seasonal offerings for $45 per person. A few highlights: fried baby squid in spicy pomodoro sauce; Roman spaghetti with guanciale, tomato and pecorino cheese; and lobster risotto with black truffle and mascarpone.

Also beginning in June: the Summer of Beer dinner series at Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill in Downtown Summerlin. Each event showcases a different brewer with beers paired with a coursed menu, starting on June 13 with Kona Brewing Co. Locals Joseph James jump in on July 11. Tickets are also $45 per person.

There are new treats on the menu at Yardbird at Venetian, including country sausage toast with a smoked and poached farm egg; gnocchi pot pie with wild mushrooms and sage; Brussels sprouts with spiced honey; and the smoked peach and ham cocktail with Wild Turkey 81, smoked peach syrup, Elemakule bitters and a garnish of cured Virginia ham.

Morimoto at MGM Grand now offers an omakase menu, a selection of dishes unique to the Las Vegas restaurant—cold and hot appetizers, a selection of sushi, an entrée and dessert. The six-course journey costs $140, with an optional wine or sake pairing for $95.
