The latest dishes and drinks that have us doing a double-take this week include truffle nachos, American-Chinese brunch items like orange chicken and waffles and new 24-karat gold-dusted burgers at Slater’s 50/50 Las Vegas.
Those of us at Restaurant Hospitality regularly see what independent operators are dishing out, but some menu items make us stop and stare — whether they involve an out-of-the-box way of using an ingredient, the appearance of a burgeoning trend or simply stunning presentations. We bring you NOM: our New on the Menu weekly roundup.
