Tasty Tuesday Celebrates Milos, Lucky Penny and Madam Red

Where to eat and drink around Las Vegas this week

By Melinda Sheckells

(Editor’s Note: Tasty Tuesday airs on KTNV Channel 13 on Tuesdays at 11:20 a.m.)

This week’s Tasty Tuesday features a new location for an on the Strip favorite; a new name and new menu for a locals favorite; and a bourbon celebration for Women’s History Month.

Milos inside The Venetian

The celebrated Greek restaurant is now located in restaurant row at The Venetian. With dramatic lighting, bright interiors and an amplified bar, Milos’ vibe feels chic. They serve the freshest seafood flown in from the Mediterranean.

In the “market,” select from fresh fruits and vegetables to accompany your meals or indulge in the raw bar with whole fish sashimi using the day’s fresh catch and a variety of crudo and tartare preparations. There’s also a yogurt room dedicated to the art of straining this Greek staple. A must-try is their famous multi-course lunch special, which is now available for $36.

Lucky Penny inside Red Rock

Inside both Red Rock Resort and Green Valley Ranch Resort, the Grand Cafe has transformed into Lucky Penny—a newly improved coffee shop, open 24/7. Lucky Penny was a concept that originated at Palms. This three-meal-a-day cafe serves comfort foods with a twist like Six Cheese Baked Mac made with cavatappi pasta, cheese sauce, goldfish crackers and cheddar crust.

Another fun dish to try is the unique appetizer combining two popular bites: a quesadilla and a pizza, creating the cheesy goodness that is a PizzaDilla. This gourmet take on the Mexican Pizza is double-stacked with crispy tortillas, shredded chicken, salsa fresca, cheddar, Oaxaca-jack cheese blend, pico de gallo, jalapeño, cilantro lime crema and guacamole

For breakfast, enjoy the Garbanzo Benedict with a garbanzo cake, poached eggs, smoky eggplant, hollandaise and mixed greens.

Maker’s Mark Is Celebrating Women’s History Month

Celebrate Women’s History Month with a taste of the Madam Red, a drink made with Maker’s Mark, Sherry, Chocolate Bitters and a Maraschino Cherry in honor of Margie Samuels, co-founder of Maker’s Mark. She was the first woman to be inducted into the Kentucky Bourbon Hall of Fame and is responsible for the iconic wax seal on the bottle.

Madam Red is available at Bugsy & Meyers Steakhouse inside the Flamingo.

Another must sip is the Gold Rush with Maker’s 26, Honey-Ginger Syrup, Lemon and 24k Edible Gold Dust.
