Month Visited: 11/11
11/11 A 3-course $10.95 lunch Tue-Thur at this student run restaurant located in Art Institute of Las Vegas in Henderson. The 2nd floor dining room is tastefully decorated and overseen by a pair of experienced chefs. In the past the menu changed weekly, but since our last visit the menu has been expanded and only changes at the beginning of each semester. We both chose the grilled polenta with black and green olives and pimento roasted vegetable coulis which was just plain delicious.
For an entree Ann chose moussaka; a combination of ground lamb, eggplant, marinara sauce, Parmesan cheese and béchamel sauce – again, delicious. I somewhat hesitantly ordered the cioppino, a fisherman’s seafood soup which turned out to be one of the best I have ever tasted. We closed out this feast by both ordering the crème brulee medley – small servings of both traditional vanilla bean and espresso. The traditional was excellent, but the espresso raised the dessert bar by a full notch. Service was a little sketchy, but very friendly.
04/07 Located in the Art Institute of America, off Green Valley Parkway. The culinary school operates a student run dining room that offers 3-course lunches for $9.95 Tuesday – Thursdays from 11:30AM-1PM – reservations suggested. The menu changes weekly, but you have a choice of 3 appetizers/salads, 3 entrees and 2 desserts. I chose the Vidalia tart with red pepper coulis, seafood Newberg over basmati rice and poached pear with vanilla ice cream. Ms. Westie opted for the Caesar salad, seafood Newberg and apple bread pudding, but was advised that several tables of red hats had disposed of the bread pudding. Service was very attentive and friendly though a little less than professional and the food very good with the exception of the basmati rice which had dried out. I would suggest making advance reservations and dining early to avoid being disappointed.
