Todd's Unique Dining

Restaurant | "Todd's"

Quote:
This is a wonderful new place owned by a local favorite and award winning chef, Todd Clore. His cooking is superb and every dish unique. If you'd like to try something special (not another trendy "food mill" kind of place) with a great menu and atmosphere, this is the restaurant for you!

The seafood is to die for. Todd serves up interesting and tasty combinations of food that is a treat for your taste buds. I highly recommend the Ahi tuna with leeks and the goat cheese wontons. The menu changes regularly, so here's the website for more info.

Todd's is located a short drive from the Strip and is a favorite of locals.

This place is amazing and beautiful, like the landscape of Mars. I went in the spring, and the desert and rock formations were just alive with flowers and blooming scrub. The smell of flowers was overpowering in places. As we drove into the park, the sights just got better and better. The looming red rocks and cliffs were breathtaking. A good hiking trail for beginners is the Mouse Tank -- I even made it the half-mile roundtrip in sandals! Ancient petroglyphs can be seen along the sandy walk and there are many rock formations that are easy to check out from the path. We even saw several large lizards sunning themselves on rocks.
