Expert review of Simon
One of Vegas' stock of celeb American chefs, Kerry Simon takes US food (from traditional to junk food) and elevates it to new levels at his namesake restaurant. The setting is glorious - next to the pool at Palms Place - the menu is innovative, the food's a high standard, and the atmosphere is pretty much as trendy as it gets. My favourite time to visit? For the Sunday brunch, where guests are encouraged to turn up in their pyjamas, and the place is rammed with models and model types.
There's a vast selection of food to take you through the day, and it's all reasonably priced. For breakfast, there's a good selection of cooked, continental and healthy options, lunch is a choice between salads, burgers, pizzas or breakfast items, and dinner is where it really smartens up with fish and meat main dishes and shellfish and gazpacho soup for starters.
The legendary Sunday brunch is the most fun, though. Served poolside 10am-4pm to guests in their pyjamas, there's everything from sandwiches and sushi to the "white trash" platter (a heap of corn bread, coleslaw, rubs and and waffles).
The junk food platter is one of the most popular dishes at brunch: a plate of snowballs, candyfloss, cookies, rice krispie cakes and "hostess cakes".
Very trendy - it's for the party set. People dress up to the nines and everyone's checking each other out.
Kerry Simon's waitresses are notoriously stunning, but that doesn't stop them being nice, too.
In Palms Place - the posh, private-feel hotel on the side of the Palms, which is party central. It's a five minute drive off the Strip.
Pretty reasonable for what it is - breakfast dishes start at US$4, while mains hover around US$15 for lunch and start at US$22 for dinner.
