THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Commander's Palace Restaurant Review

: Managing partner Brad Brennan (Ella Brennan's nephew) and chef Carlos Guia came to Las Vegas from the New Orleans landmark. Among the restaurant's five comfortable dining rooms is the elegant Wine Room with wall-to-wall, built-in wine racks. An old Brennan classic, 25-cent martinis complement the luncheon fare. Offered from 5 p.m., the favorite Creole package is a moderately priced dinner of signature dishes---turtle soup au sherry; Creole-seasoned, pecan-crusted fish with a salad, spiced pecans and meunière sauce; and bread pudding soufflé with bourbon sauce. Among other tantalizing specialties is a stew of jumbo Gulf shrimp, Louisiana oysters and garlic-crusted fish sautéed with Abita Amber beer and rosemary barbecue sauce. Traditional desserts include a classic created by the Brennans---bananas Foster with vanilla bean ice cream. Friday-through-Sunday brunches feature a New Orleans-style jazz band and a Hats on You, Drinks on Us tradition---diners wearing hats (billed caps with logos do not qualify) receive a complimentary Bloody Mary or mimosa.
