Winter cravings manifest beautifully at Sage

Fork tender? How about spoon tender?

It’s time to confess. The holiday splurge is over, and new year’s resolutions might have you eating lighter in January. But it’s still winter. It’s still cold out. And you know you’re still dreaming of hearty, decadent food to make sense of it all.

When you’re in the mood for something braised, Sage is the place. Chef Shawn McClain’s fine-dining favorite adjacent to Aria’s lobby has a reputation as the restaurant where farm-to-table gets an extra dose of flavor, and while the menu always changes with the seasons, the braised beef shortrib is a standard that’s always in style.

It’s surrounded by winter root veggies, a smooth fennel-potato purée and a rich red wine reduction, but the meat remains the star on this plate. Fork tender? How about spoon tender? This is pure guilt-inducing pleasure, too delicious to stop eating it. Don’t worry, your personal trainer doesn’t have to know. This secret’s safe at Sage. Sage at Aria, 702-590-9520; Monday-Saturday 5:30-10:30 p.m.
