I hadn’t been to Las Vegas in years and recently had opportunities to go twice and eat great food rather than gamble, shows or glitz.
My friend recommended Serendipity and of course, we had to share a chocolate, chocolate sundae. The quality of the ice cream was very good with a deep rich and satisfying chocolate taste. This held us until dinner at Rao’s Italian restaurant. Very authentic and originally from NYC, the family opened this location and service is supreme. Highly recommended were the ravioli purses made with light dough filled pear and a bit of brandy. Heavenly.
Venturing to the other side of Vegas, was a chance to try an Eastern European café and bar that the Food Network featured. The owner of Forte bar and grill makes her own sausages, bread and Bulgarian dishes. The restaurant is ecliptic and inexpensive. Dumplings with seasoned meat, many varieties of sausages and clay pot meal was seasoned well. Home made bread dipped in their secret mixture of herbs and spices was delicious.
Bobby Flay’s Mesa Grill pleased my palate with pork tenderloin seasoned in New Mexico spices and ancho sauce served with a sweet potato tamale. Very good presentation and service.
I need to return soon to try other excellent restaurants, so many to try, so little time.
