Best Tacos For After Drinking: Chorizo and Egg Breakfast Tacos
The Rockhouse, The Venetian

Comme Ca

Best French Fry Substitute: Three French Devils
Comme Ca, The Cosmopolitan
From a constantly changing menu inspired by the gastro-bistro movement in Paris, these suckers are topped w/ Green Goddess dressing, smoked salmon, and harissa. And, thankfully, are nothing like how mom used to make 'em.
