China Poblano- Jose, where are you?

Wow, I was there last week and had the exact opposite experience. No reservation, they sat me right away. Ordered the refried bean taco and the Carnitas, both had a lot of flavor, not much spice, but you can add to your taste. Have eaten there at least 6 times over the course of the last 4 years and have never had a bad meal or experience. Very sorry you had such a poor server.

Carnevino or B&B?

I have been to both and would say it depends on what you want. The steaks at Carnevino were wonderful and very large. Service was great. If you want Italian I would recommend B&B, I know it is not a popular place on this board but I have been there four times now and have always had a positive experience, including the last one two weeks ago where we only ordered apps. We told them up front that is what we wanted and they were great recommending something new for us and a wine that went great with them. We were there in February and had the mint love letters and thought they were one of the best things we had eaten in a long time.

Unusual food on the strip? Going in 2 months to Vegas...staying at Venetian.

Hi, I'm the Mom and the one who wants the others to expand their horizons as far as food goes. Thanks QAW for the reply. Can anyone recommend a specific presentation for the foie gras or bone marrow? Remember these are people who the most exotic thing they have eaten is veal. We are willing to go to Wynn/Encore or somewhere close as we will be walking so not at the other end of the strip.

Long time lurker looking for info on where to find pork belly, beef cheeks and bone marrow. Looking for these foods in vegas and am leaving on Tuesday, know this board can help.

Already going to the Bubble Bar. Please help!
