In vintage Vegas fashion, Ichabod's entertains for 24 hours a day and boasts live music and video gaming to accompany the extensive lunch and dinner selections. Start your Tuesday afternoon right by shimmying into a cozy red booth and indulging in a basket of fried clams and french fries ($8.99), or find out how much you can eat on the generous all-you-can-eat soup and salad bar ($8.99). The dinner menu boasts a dozen varieties of burgers, including the chili burger ($8.99), with cheddar cheese, red onions, and chili, and entrees offer satisfying selections such as the 12-ounce broiled rib eye ($17.99), classic chicken-fried steak ($11.99), and a tortilla-crusted tilapia ($13.99).
Sprawling over 60,000 square feet inside and out, TAO is a place for the footloose, the fancy, and the free-spirited. Mingling Japanese, Chinese, Korean, and Thai cuisines, the menu entices gourmands with exotic entrees, and the dimly lit dance floor throbs to big bass beats. Plush chaise lounges with luxuriously wide cushions flank the pool at TAO Beach, a great place to relax or get romantic while chicken fighting. TAO’s portrait of opulent pleasure is completed with grace notes such as a hand-carved, 20-foot-tall Buddha, a meditative indoor koi pond, and backlit floral screens overlooking the booths.
The Dispensary Lounge's bright red doors usher the bar's clientele into a tangerine space filled with hanging plants and furniture that reclines at easy angles. While the bar stays open all 24 hours of the day, the kitchen produces edibles from 11 a.m. to 1 a.m. In that 14-hour span each day, patrons can gnaw on a texas barbecued cheeseburger slathered in homemade spicy western marinade ($6.95) or dip a baked ham-and-cheese sandwich into a tiny vat of the owners' special mustard sauce ($8.95). An angular, wooden bar transmits cool drinks ($4–$5) as patrons navigate the video poker games inset into the bar top. The Dispensary Lounge also hosts weekly drawings, and though winners do not have to be physically present, their body doubles must stand in to accept the prize.
Located on the 50th floor of the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino’s Masquerade Village, VooDoo Steak affords its guests a hawk’s-eye view of the city's skyline. The view isn't the only reason to come; according to VisitLasVegas.com, chef Honorio Mecinas' menu of steak-house cuisine, some of which is prepared with an in-house dry-aging program, is worth a visit. Substantial cuts of high-quality meat are a major focus, and choices include bone-in wagyu tomahawk steaks and Black Canyon filet mignon. The Creole influences that appear in the decor also show up in shareable dishes such as lump crab cakes or zucchini-boursin beignets. As an added perk, diners get access to the VooDoo rooftop nightclub for no additional charge.
