Happy holidays and happier dining to all. Regularly-scheduled programming will continue Monday.
LAS VEGAS—We've already taken long looks at the fancy interiors of early CityCenter standouts Twist and Bar Masa, but the Las Vegas Sun is also impressed by the SLDesign design of Michael Mina's latest, American Fish: "The restaurant is filled with woodsy elements that, like the kitchen's preparations, seem to dance between rustic and chic. Hanging from the ceiling is a steel sculpture steel that is the design equivalent of a Rorschach test ... American Fish has become the site for experiments for both Mina and SLDesign. Behind the bar, an infinity feature using mirrors makes you feel like you're drinking in a stand of birch trees." [LVS]
