Night #2 in Vegas. Bcam made us reservations at Bobby Flay’s restaurant Mesa Grill which sits right across from the PCD Burlesque Show and Pure. Our waiter was a really nice, decently good looking, supposedly French dude. No pictures since this places was a little classy for that. My premonition was correct in that this was one of those big plates/small food type places.

We started with a shrimp ceviche served with plantain chips. The consensus was that the shrimp was gummy and the flavors were just ok. I was expecting something with a good kick to it and a nice sourness. I had the mahi-mahi which was flavored well but overcooked (sorry, Bobby). Bcam’s chile rellano (even with the goat cheese which I hate!) was good and the best of the entrees. For dessert, chocolate cake. Good but not great.

The best part of the meal were the drinks – three white peach margaritas (heavy handed George at the bar made them plenty strong). By dessert I was walkin’ crooked and talking about layaway.

The entire meal set us back 2 bills (including a nice tip for the friendly waiter).
