G’day for Outback lovers in Henderson; frozen novelties pop up at new location


Sirloin and crab-topped shrimp at Outback Steakhouse.

Henderson is getting a taste of the Outback once again.

Outback Steakhouse, the Australian-themed restaurant chain, returned to the city Wednesday.

Elsewhere, another well-known national chain has opened a shop, and a late-night dining spot at Caesars Palace said goodbye.

A gourmet popcorn shop serves up frozen novelties, and a former fitness model gets “vicious” with his clients’ training regimens.
