There are rules for making Neapolitan pizza. That’s... not hyperbole. There’s a group called the Vera Pizza Napoletana that makes those rules. And this new 4,000-square-foot pizzeria follows every damn one—the Italian tomatoes. The fresh mozzarella. The wood-burning ovens. Plus there are cocktails. Which isn’t a rule, but still.

THE DINER THINGS

First Blackjack, Then Diner

Right off the casino floor at the shiny new Downtown Grand, there’s a place called Stewart + Ogden. It’s named after a couple of famous 19th-century Nevadans who happened to be big-time foodies.

How Winter Happens in Vegas

Quick geography lesson for you—Las Vegas is a desert. Doesn’t get much real winter there. What it gets is a two-month wonderland of iceless ice skating (yeah, it’s a special rink) and seasonal Italian dinners with Wolfgang Puck and Mario Batali at the Venetian/Palazzo. Vegas winter is... better winter.
