The lobby of the Hotel Saint George is, in its own way, as wide open as the desert is outside. Ceilings are high, surfaces gleam, decor is minimal. LaVenture, previously a dinner-only restaurant, now serves all day, with mixed results. Although the place is well staffed for weekends and events, said waiters rush around looking harried, and you might have to wait longer than you’d expect for your food. Alas, our chicken tinga tacos arrived just barely warm, with none of the spicy heat promised in the name. Lately, it seems, the cooking is not as polished as the space.
