Wine and dine on the water’s edge

Garfield By Debbie Hall

In the Desert Shores community in Summerlin is Garfield’s Restaurant. With a spectacular view of Lake Jacqueline for a very unique desert dining experience, Garfield’s offers a great choice for lunch, dinner or brunch, either with friends, business associates, family or a romantic meal.

Named in honor of Sir Garfield Sobers, considered one of the greatest all-around cricket players of all time, the name was chosen to emulate greatness without being stuffy or aristocratic.

Executive Chef Ross Boaz, formerly with Rosemary’s Restaurant as the Chef de Cuisine for 10 years and MGM Grand, has recently joined the Garfield’s team and has added his flair to the signature dish of seared scallops with roasted heirloom potato, house-cured bacon, onion confit, and arugula salad with smoked corn cream and has proven to be a favorite with diners. Brunch on Saturday and Sunday is a special event with a variety of breakfast and lunch options. In addition, unlimited mimosas, Bellinis and Bloody Marys are offered during brunch for $10.

Headed by General Manager Daniel Sobers, Executive Chef Boaz, Beverage Director Michael Jones and Banquet Director Anthony Kondirch; Garfield’s is in the process of transforming its current American fare to include some Latin American and Caribbean influences. One of its new desserts to be featured on the new menu will be banana cheesecake.

What won’t change is the food served featuring farm to table, locally grown fresh produce and naturally fed beef, pork and poultry delivered and prepared daily.

Garfield’s mixologists create specialty drinks using vodkas with house-infused fresh fruit and berries and all of the mixes are made in-house with hand-squeezed juices and the finest of spices. Happy hour is Monday to Friday from 4 to 7 p.m. with 2-for-1 drinks and 50 percent off appetizers.

In addition, Garfield’s has four different banquet venues located at Lakeside Center that can accommodate from 15 to 250 guests with event planners available to help plan events including a business lunch, holiday party, mixer or wedding reception.
