Restaurant Tidbits: Special Casino Edition (With Bonus Rudy Giuliani Cameo Appearance)



Tonight at 10 p.m. is the grand opening of the new casino Lumiere Place -- maybe you've heard about it? -- featuring Hubert Keller's Burger Bar and (next month, supposedly) his steak house Sleek.

Not to be outdone, today Harrah's (777 Casino Center Drive) is unveiling its new $17.2-million buffet "experience" Eat Up! The buffet offers seven "interactive foodscapes," sez the press release, including an open-flame meat cooker, a seven-foot-tall smoker and a Brazilian churrascaria station.

Finally, Republican presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani is scheduled to greet supporters at the Smokehouse Market (16806 Chesterfield Airport Road) at 5 p.m. today. Now, those of you who have been to the Smokehouse Market know that it's tiny, which means that this might be more photo op than actual meet-and-greet -- or that Giuliani is doing really, really badly in Missouri.
