Marche Bacchus - Ideal Alternative to The Strip

/
My friend John Curtas of Eating Las Vegas fame told me in my early Vegas Wineaux blogging career, "don't review a restaurant after only one visit." Well, he's a genuine restaurant critic with years of experience, and except for the occasional stellar or stinky incident, I have taken his advice to heart.

The Best Pairing. Ever. Period.

At MirePoix Vegas, I've talked about everything from the annoying “Chairman” on Iron Chef America - one of my favorite programs, by the way - to recipes using frog fallopian tubes and bat nuts.

MirePoix Vegas is a blog about food. Whether I'm talking about an ethereal meal of caviar and truffles (ha! like that ever happens!), a really great restaurant experience, a new recipe, a new Food Network program, or just sharing how well organic beef hot dogs pair with a five dollar bottle of red (pretty damn good, by the way), it's going to be about all aspects of the food experience.

BJ's Restaurant & Brewhouse Surprises

The bar area is somewhat elevated from the restaurant section. There's a huge, six-panel television behind the bar. On it was a variety of sporting events - primarily football and baseball - along with that annoying Progressive Insurance woman.

Zin Festival - A Vegas Wineaux Series!

It wasn't just because of the wines - although that had a lot to do with it - but it was because of the Wild Game BBQ that Augie hosted. So it was our stomachs that made the decision for us. What a shock, right?
