Therapy Restaurant Transitions Ownership Ahead of New Year



Therapy restaurant, located in the heart of Downtown Las Vegas at 518 E. Fremont St., has been acquired by budding entrepreneur, Chris Morganelli, who will assume operations on Wednesday, Dec. 19.


Current owners of Therapy, The Sig Rogich Family and Jared Weiss of Motion Corp Real Estate, opened the American gastro-style pub in June of 2015. Since opening, Therapy has received national recognition for its one-of-a-kind dishes and unique libations, including the red velvet chicken waffle sliders and signature Therapy Smoke Wagon Whiskey, from the Travel Channel, USA Today, The Daily Meal and others.


“Owning Therapy has been tremendously rewarding,” said Weiss, who developed the popular downtown Las Vegas restaurant with The Sig Rogich Family. “Downtown Las Vegas has evolved so much in the past few years and we’ve enjoyed growing with the vibrant dining scene.”


Morganelli, the founder and former CEO of Capitola Healing Association in Santa Cruz, Calif., was drawn to Therapy’s inventive cuisine and Downtown Las Vegas’ ever expanding popularity. “Therapy is a fabulous restaurant and bar with an unbeatable location in Downtown Las Vegas,” said Morganelli. “I am excited to be a part of the restaurant’s next chapter and look forward to  continuing to offer the exceptional cocktails, cuisine and service that Therapy has become known for.”

Three Locations to Debut Summer 2014 inside Red Rock Resort and Santa Fe Station


The Wiener’s Circle, Chicago’s famed hot dog stand, will open in Las Vegas this summer with locations at Red Rock Resort and Santa Fe Station Hotel & Casino. Offering authentic Chicago-style char-grilled hot dogs and hamburgers, fresh-cut fries and milkshakes, the 31 year-old landmark boasts famous fans including Oprah Winfrey, George Clooney and Rachael Ray and has been featured on the Travel Channel and Food Network’s “The Best Thing I Ever Ate.”The Wiener’s Circle moniker was selected by founders and horse racing fanatics Larry Gold and Barry Nemerow as a play on that sport’s designation for each race’s top thoroughbreds, and they have spent the last three decades delivering quality fare at reasonable prices. Over the years, many have tried to coax them to expand to other markets, however Las Vegas was the sweet spot for the pair.

While the Chicago location has gained some notoriety in recent years for late night antics between customers and staff, the Las Vegas outposts will focus on the legendary food in a family-friendly environment.

In addition to the classic menu offerings, the new locations will debut exclusive only-in-Vegas items, including all day breakfast nosh such as bacon, two eggs over easy and American cheese sandwiched in a fried donut, wieners in the blanket – ten or twenty piggies with a selection of sauces, a veggie burger and the Adult Happy Meal with a signature Chicago Char Cheddar dog, fries and a Pabst Blue Ribbon. The Wiener’s Circle will also serve the ever popular Krispy Kreme donuts.

Station Casinos’ popular entertainment destinations Red Rock Resort and Santa Fe Station provide a variety of amenities, including hotels, a full array of gaming, live entertainment, bowling, movies and an assortment of restaurants and bars. Both of The Weiner’s Circle outposts will be nestled between the sports book and poker room; the Red Rock Resort location is slated to open in early June, while the Santa Fe Station locations, including a satellite stand at the bowling center, are expected to debut this summer.

Eating Las Vegas: The 50 Essential Restaurants 2013 Features 11 New Entries – Plus Three New In The Top 10



In recent years Las Vegas has experienced a meteoric rise to become, arguably, the best restaurant city in the world. The names attached to the eateries on the famed Las Vegas Strip represent a veritable Whos Who of the culinary universe, now home to James Beard Foundation award-winning names pulled from the industry’s top food magazines, blogs and television shows. The 2013 edition of Eating Las Vegas: The 50 Essential Restaurants (Huntington Press, December, 2012) accomplishes what no other restaurant guide has, compiling the opinions of the citys three most respected critics (John Curtas, Max Jacobson and Al Mancini) to create a reference book that lists their agreed-upon Essential 50 restaurants in Sin City.

But its much more than just a list of restaurants, as each entry receives a thoughtful and candid description from all three authors. The guide also includes a 44-page specialty guide dedicated to Additional Recommendations from beer to buffets and from Sunday brunch to sushi “ plus everything else in between. The contentious (and ever-popular) Vetoes section pits author-against-author, a literary version of a free-for-all food fight.

When we green-lit this project three years ago, I wasn’t sure its realization was even a possibility, as we were dealing with three highly knowledgeable but incredibly strong-willed personalities, said publisher Anthony Curtis. But John (Curtas), Max (Jacobson) and Al (Mancini) have continued to deliver on their promise to seek out, and agree upon, Las Vegas 50 Essential Restaurants.

The 2013 edition of Eating Las Vegas with its foreword written by 14-times James Beard Foundation award-winning food journalist,  Alan Richman, adds three newcomers to the vaunted Top Ten list “ including two off-strip restaurants “ a first for the book “ in March Bacchus French Bistro and Raku Japanese Charcoal Grill. The other newcomer is Piero Selvaggios Valentino at The Venetian. Rounding out the Top Ten, and repeating from 2012, are Estiatorio Milos at The Cosmopolitan, Jol Robuchon and L’Atelier de Jol Robuchon at MGM Grand, Restaurant Guy Savoy at Caesars Palace, CUT at Palazzo and Le Cirque and Picasso at Bellagio.

In addition to the Top 10, 11 new restaurants made the Essential 50,including Bread & Butter, Comme a at The Cosmopolitan, Due Forni, Fleur at Mandalay Bay, Gordon Ramsay Steak at Paris, Kabuto, Le Thai, Mint Indian Bistro, miX at Mandalay Bay,
Public House at The Venetian and Sirio at Aria. Of course, when restaurants are added, casualties are inevitable. Eleven previously listed restaurants didnt make the cut this year. Some may be easier to swallow than others, but the authors refuse to place celebrity above credibility, as one notable inclusion in the Vetoes section amply demonstrates.

About Eating Las Vegas: The Essential 50 Restaurants

The 2013 edition of Eating Las Vegas: The 50 Essential Restaurants features all the elements — fully updated — that have made the ELV brand such a success, including the Top Ten and 40 best-of-the-rest picks from the city’s top-three (and ever-feisty) food critics, to make up the list of the “50 Essential” restaurants in Las Vegas. With each year this unique guide keeps getting bigger and better.  While still in handy pocket-sized format, its expanded the popular Vetoes section, and for the first time added Best Buffets to the Additional Recommendations.  The authors have also embellished many of the other “Best of” lists, to reflect the city’s ever-increasing array of enticing eateries, from bakeries to sushi restaurants. There are some big changes at the top, too, including three all-new entries in the Top Ten, so this restaurant roadmap truly never gets stale. From the Michelin-starred gastronomic temples to ethnic hole-in-the-walls you’ve never heard of, Eating Las Vegas now features close to 200 restaurants and bars, with tempting options for every taste and wallet, plus mouth-watering full-color photographs throughout.  It’s a must-have pocket companion for anyone planning to eat a meal in Las Vegas — whether you’re in the market for a quick snack or a 10-course chef’s tasting menu — and makes a great stocking-filler for the gambling foodie in your life.  This handy full-color pocket guide is available in paperback ($12.95) and e-book formats ($7.77) from Amazon and Barnes & Noble, as well as directly from the publisher at ShopLVA.comIn 2013 authors John Curtas and Al Mancini will co-host a show on Travel Channel that will document them eating, and arguing, their way through the top food cities in America.
