Downtown Las Vegas offers lots of places to drink, but when it comes time to eat there aren't a lot of restaurants outside of hotels. Triple George Grill offers a touch of old school, where a few in-the-know tourists and lots of professionals meet for power lunches, happy hours and more.
The menu is reasonably priced and features delicious appetizers, including fresh seafood like shrimp cocktail, oysters, steamed clams and crab cakes. If you don't like seafood, there's spinach and artichoke dip, baked goat cheese and beef carpaccio.
If you're in for lunch, Triple George has a convenient "Ten under $10" menu, with choices such as baked ziti, charbroiled chicken sandwich, the Downtown Reuben sandwich and pot roast, all for under $10.
Triple George's classic American food is simply mouthwatering. Fresh cioppino, Petrale sole with a lemon beurre blanc and the bacon wrapped meatloaf are all good options. If you're in the mood for a steak, try the New York steak, topped with garlic butter. Other good options include buttermilk sage-fried chicken, a grilled veggie wrap and larger salads like crab Louie, Sonoma chicken salad and steak and Gorgonzola cheese.
Inside Triple George, the bar is the center of attention. A large, dark-wood bar allows guests to dine in for a quick bite, or have a few drinks and stay awhile. Around the room, photos of notable Las Vegas social and political elite line the walls, including mayors, celebrities and other famous faces.
If you're looking to talk top secret business, one of the semi-private booths is more your speed, complete with hooks to hang your bags. For larger parties, a private dining room is available.
