There is something new happening between the Quad Hotel (formally the Imperial Palace) and the Flamingo Hotel. The Linq shopping center offers entertainment, dining, stores and nightlife.
This columnist received an invitation to celebrate the opening of the Yard House Restaurant at the Linq. Their preview event allowed guests to sample the food, cocktails and extensive draught beer offerings.
Daniel Wright, General Manager, explained, “The Yard House Restaurant’s offers a large menu which includes vegetarian selections and dishes under 600 calories for the health conscious
The Yard House Restaurant’s motto: “Great food, classic rock and the world’s largest selection of draft beer.
We call our cuisine American fusion with Latino, Asian and Mediterranean influences. We even feature New Orleans Jambalaya.

This Yard House Restaurant measures 22,000 square feet, the largest of the chain. The dining room offers sections with two, three and more chairs together for couples, friends and family.
Their Street Taco plates are reminiscent of the street vendors selling their tacos in Mexico.”
