Chef Shawn McClain will soon open his first pizzeria inside Las Vegas' Aria resort , a property at which he has run the popular, upscale Sage restaurant since CityCenter's opening three years ago. The eatery, called FIVE50, is to open this spring. The name comes from what's considered to be the ideal temperature for baking pizzas, 550 degrees. “I would say it's 50% pizza and 50% bar,” McClain told me. “We wanted to capture the soul of an East Coast, New York pizzeria and combine it with a fresh, edgy, soulful bar.” McClain said he has spent the last several months researching what makes a great pizza.
