Express Business Lunch Program Ready for Pick Up
 
LAS VEGAS (Sept. 19, 2012) –In a town with mega-sized restaurants, celebrity chefs and sky-high prices to match, wouldn’t it be great to find a hidden gem in Las Vegas that is affordable, relaxed, refined and welcoming?  How about a friendly restaurant which features a new Executive Chef that has traditional French and classical culinary training, but delivers his own playful take with unique small plates and delicious bites?  Fortunately, Rumor Boutique Hotel has Addiction.
 
Always stylish yet simple in design, Addiction is located just inside the chic, playful lobby. The restaurant has the perfect view of Rumor’s pool and distinctive courtyard and palm trees, and it was the ideal landing place for new Executive Chef Jacob Coronado.  With more than six years of experience as an accomplished Sous Chef for various AAA Four Diamond restaurants and properties across the U.S., Coronado takes the culinary helm at Rumor to completely re-imagine Addiction’s menu and synthesize it with his distinctive style and flavor.  Playfully plated, each item on the menu represents Coronado’s passion and French trained influences.
 
“I wanted to create a menu that is simple and fun, but when it arrives at the table, I want it to have a bit of a wow effect,” he smiles.  “People come to Rumor to escape the crowds, unwind after work or relax a bit before they hit the clubs…we designed the menu to fit the experience.  From our Short-Rib Breakfast Sliders in the morning to our Fish Tacos at lunch to our Calamari Steak at dinner, I’ve tried to showcase my technique in the flavors, the plating and the presentation.  Everything is meant to be shared and enjoyed but I’ve made sure to give a hearty portion.  I want people to feel as though they just had a four-star meal for a fraction of the price.” 
 
In addition to enjoying the new menu items being offered inside Addiction, those on the run can now take advantage of Chef Coronado’s Lunch Dine & Dash menu.  Monday through Friday from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., Addiction offers an express lane in dining.  Enjoy a two-course lunch for $12 or a three course for $15, with a tempting selection of savory treats and sweets.  Try the Chilled Melon Soup for an appetizer, or select the Asian Calamari Salad or Cobb Chicken Salad for an entrée.  Polish it all off with House Made Ice Cream Sandwich, vanilla or chocolate ice cream on house made chocolate chip cookies, or the Bread Pudding with apples, caramel, and vanilla custard. Best of all, guests can mix and match their meal to satisfy their personal cravings.    
 
Perfectly-situated and awash in natural light with sleek décor, the main restaurant spills out into the courtyard offering the ultimate indoor and outdoor dining experience. A private dining room seats 14 and is decorated with dripping chandeliers and an oversized high communal table.  Here, guests enjoy an intimate function or mingle while overlooking the lobby.  For reservations or more information, go to www.rumorvegas.com or call 877-99-RUMOR (78667).

BREAKFAST
What better way to start a Las Vegas morning than with a breakfast that prepares you for the day’s adventure.  Addiction restaurant offers the Classic Breakfast with eggs, bacon or sausage, country potatoes and toast.  Or, if you are looking for something with a little more pizzazz, the Short Rib Breakfast Sliders, two sliders with fried egg, and potato pancake served with country gravy, will ignite your taste buds with the flame of temptation.  Or start the day on a healthier note with the Egg White Frittata, a modern take on Italian cuisine complete with fresh basil, roasted tomato, sautéed spinach and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar.
 
LUNCH
Addiction restaurant’s new lunch menu offers a tasty array of sandwiches and salads complete with Crispy Fries or Pesto Pasta Salad.  Did we mention all sandwiches and salads can be wrapped?  Make any lunch at Addiction a healthier one if you desire.  The new Panini menu offers both a Turkey Panini, complete with avocado, topped with dried tomatoes, aged provolone and house-made Fresno pickles, and a Veggie Panini, topped with grilled market vegetables and mascarpone cheese.  For a manly meal, order the Steak Frites, a juicy grilled hanger steak served with seasoned fries.  The Fish Tacos are another excellent choice with blackened cod, red cabbage tossed in homemade chipotle cilantro dressing, roasted salsa and fresh lime.  For the healthiest of alternatives, the Salmon Salad holds nothing back.  It comes with seared salmon, shaved red onion, roasted corn, and julienned carrots with balsamic dressing.
