People eat three times a day to prevent mouthy mouths from brashly blurting out their distaste for the rest of the digestive system. Prevent inner-system quarreling by subduing chatty cheeks with upscale eats with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of contemporary American fare and drinks at Mood Restaurant at the Artisan Hotel Boutique.
Located in the Artisan Hotel Boutique, Chef Eric Nenneman whips up contemporary American fare with international twists. Nestled into the gothic, opulent interior, or seated outdoors in the fresh air, sustenance seekers choose from meals inspired by the location of the sun in the sky; pick your eats from the breakfast menu or the lunch and dinner menu. Rise with the rooster and fight it for the Artisan French toast ($7), thick slices of Texas toast brushed with corn flakes and cinnamon, or laze into lunch with grilled salmon salad ($12) or the lobster BLT ($12). Patrons can test stomach elasticity with dinner delights such as the shrimp scampi ($18), sautéed jumbo shrimps discoing atop a dance floor of linguine and diced tomatoes in a rhythmic white wine sauce. Insomniacs and p.m. party beasts find needed nourishment from a late night menu that includes tasty grilled teriyaki wings ($9), artisan nachos ($9), flatbread pizzas ($10), and quesadillas made from the pages of Goodnight Moon.
Live piano performances in the restaurant from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. every night of the week, a harmonious full bar, and an especially melodic dessert menu encourages diners to augment their evenings with romantic spins on the dance floor and sweet spoon dips into the crisp shell of the triple threat crème brûlée ($6), a trio of espresso and Kahlua, raspberry, and Tahitian vanilla bean custards.
- The room is small and dark — as befits the whole libidinous image of the hotel — and the chairs are some of the most comfortable we’ve sat in — with real arm rests, firm-yet-soft cushions. – John Curtas, Eating Las Vegas
- Chef Eric Nennaman cooks the best Lamb Chops in the world considering I don't usually eat lamb ;D I hope that tells u something. – Jill V., Yelp, 1/26/10
