Yay back at home! Wrote this entry March 3, 2008…
I’m sitting in my jammies (black and white plaid with pink trim – like ’em?) in one of two full beds in my room on the 51st floor of the Wynn in Las Vegas. Sometimes life is good. Real good.
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).
A few weeks ago I headed to Vegas to celebrate the birthday of a fabulous friend. Dragging Lizzie and Bcam along meant for sure good eats. For our first night we hit Tao for dinner – partly to taste the food, mostly to get into the club afterwards.
Since we weren’t particularly hungry we ordered a few small things to share.
