C O V E R S T O RY WEEKLY | 07.13.17 BEST NEW STRIP MINDBLOWER Chica We thought the Strip might not know what to do with a Latin food spot that's not Mexican, but Lorena Garcia's food is too delicious to fret over such details. Arepas, ceviches, cazuelas … oh my! Venetian, 702-805-8472. BEST BUTCHER SHOP The Butcher Block Here you'll fi nd nearly everything you could dream of throwing on a grill—1855 Brand Black Angus and Japanese Wagyu steaks, Kurobuta Berkshire pork, live lobster, exotics like elk and rattlesnake and much more. 6440 N. Durango Drive, 702-570-6328; 7965 S. Rainbow Blvd. #125, 702-558-6328. BEST DISH THAT'LL MAKE YOU CONSIDER GOING VEGAN Impossible Burger at Andrea's Vox called it the "Tesla of food," and while there are a handful of places in New York City, San Francisco and LA where you can get your paws on this "bleeding" meatless patty, only Andrea's serves up the plant-based burger from Silicon Valley's Impossible Foods. Encore, 702-770-5340. BEST INSTANT BRUNCH Lulu's Bread & Breakfast This counter-service breakfast and lunch spot bakes its own bread, makes mouthwatering tar- tines, hashes and pulled pork Benedicts (the "Benecio Del Porko," bow down), and there's almost never a wait. Be sure to get some macar- ons to go. 6720 Sky Pointe Drive, 702-437-5858. BEST NEW NEIGHBORHOOD MINDBLOWER Sparrow + Wolf Foodies have been drooling over the prospect of Brian Howard's own restaurant for years. From his "Chinatown clams casino" to the udon with lamb ragu, the chef refuses to disappoint. 4480 Spring Mountain Road, 702-790-2147. FOOD BEST STEAKHOUSE Cut Wolfgang Puck's razor-sharp chophouse has been a favorite since the Palazzo opened nearly 10 years ago, so it's no surprise the ever-creative Cut makes the cut as your pick this year. Palazzo, 702-607-6300. BEST BURGER JOINT In-N-Out Burger In a town fi lled with gourmet burgers, you've stuck with old reliable, and we wouldn't dare disagree. Confession: Offered the choice of any bite in town, a member of our staff chose a Double Double combo for Father's Day. It's simply that scrumptious. Multiple locations, Campfi re Duck at Sparrow + Wolf. (Jon Estrada/Special to Weekly)
