The return of Mabel's BBQ is one of the best things about the recent reopening of the Palms resort. Michael Symon's restaurant looks much the same as it did before the 2020 shutdown, albeit with a modified, somewhat truncated menu. The heritage-bred meats are smoked in-house over cherrywood, applewood, and post oak, served on their own or inside sandwiches and a "stoner burrito." The smoked portabella in the latter is a nice option for vegetarians. Mabel's picks up where it left off with an excellent beer, bourbon, and cocktail selection. Have your Manhattan made to order or with a "French Toast" influence (with maple and walnut bitters) on draft. The one thing missing, at least for now, is Sara's, the restaurant's still-closed speakeasy supper club. Get a feel for what it was like with a Smoked Prime Rib special on Fridays.
