Concierge.com's insider take:

Sam DeMarco practically invented the playful small plate genre, but he's refined the concept and taken it to new heights at his 10,000 square-foot Vegas outpost, a chic loft space with graffiti-strewn walls and a postmodern, almost Gothic decor. What's especially noteworthy about this Strip-facing restaurant and bar is the fact that it is open 23 hours a day, possibly the only venue in the city offering an after-club alternative as well as a first-quality breakfast. Innovations like the breakfast Martini and spreadable danish, served with a four-schmear sampler, give way during the day to clever conceits such as pastrami Reuben tacos, mojito lamb chops, and Croque-Monsieur pops, but there is both method and technique in this madness. The joke is that almost everything shows the chef's good taste, down to the Peet's coffee that slaps you in the face like a Vegas sunrise.—Max Jacobson, first published on Gourmet.com
