District: Donuts. Sliders. Brew.

District: Donuts. Sliders. Brew. The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas Level 2, The Boulevard Tower 3708 Las Vegas Blvd S Las Vegas, NV 89109 Yelp Well it sure has been a while since my last real update!  Big changes in my life have made blogging difficult.  I should rename my blog “Overworked. Underfed. Beyond Exhausted.”  Discovering…

Bouchon

Bouchon  The Venetian 3355 Las Vegas Blvd. S Venezia Tower, 10th floor Las Vegas, NV 89109 Yelp The name “Thomas Keller” is almost synonymous with delicious food.  This is a man who has built a strong reputation for himself in the fine dining world with his 2 Michelin rated restaurants Per Se and The French…

Sweets Raku

Sweets Raku 5040 W. Spring Mountain Rd. Las Vegas, NV 89146 Yelp I almost made the same mistake twice in forgetting to blog about the best dessert place in Las Vegas.  Sweets Raku really impressed me with their perfectly executed made-to-order desserts when I first dined here 2 years ago after my diner at the…

Guy Savoy

Guy Savoy Caesar’s Palace 3570 S. Las Vegas Blvd. Las Vegas, NV 89109 Yelp The last time the Michelin guide published a Las Vegas edition was 2009. At that time, only 1 restaurant, Joel Robuchon, earned 3 Michelin stars.  Only 3 restaurants, including Guy Savoy (pronounced “Ghee Savwa”), earned 2 Michelin stars.  The 7 year old rating…

Mon Ami Gabi

Mon Ami Gabi 3655 Las Vegas Blvd. Las Vegas, NV 89109 Yelp I had heard Mon Ami Gabi at The Paris Hotel was pretty good, but I never believed it, until now.  We came here for brunch.  We were not fortunate enough to have one of the coveted tables on the patio overlooking the Bellagio…

Kabuto

Kabuto 5040 Spring Mountain Road Las Vegas, NV 89146 Yelp The Annoyer has been talking about Kabuto for a long time.  It may be one of the best high end sushi places in Las Vegas.  Wherever there is delicious sushi, The Annoyer is sure to be there.  Finally we had a chance to check it out…

MOzen Bistro

Vegas and buffet are almost synonymous words in my book.  You can’t go to Vegas, shop till you drop, gamble like money grows on trees, and NOT eat until you explode.  Almost every Vegas trip includes a visit to whatever the hottest buffet is at the moment.  That hot buffet is Bacchanal at Caesar’s Palace….

Lotus of Siam

When planning the eats for my Vegas trip, I needed to balance out all the indulgent heaviness from Public House and Yardbird.  A solid Asian meal was my answer.  A cheap meal to boot!  Lotus of Siam is pretty famous as far as Thai food in Vegas goes.  I enjoyed my meal here on my…

Yardbird Southern Table

Yardbird Southern Table might have been the foodie highlight of my Miami trip.  I was super excited to find out they opened a post in Las Vegas.  I was wary though.  Sometimes the quality can falter when places expand to Vegas.  I feel like chains/restaurateurs/chefs just expand to the Sin City for the sake of…

Public House

Lo-MaLinda loves gastropub fare.  I like it, but find that it can be a little too heavy at times.  For our Vegas trip, she requested 3 things: foie, French, and gastropub.  It was a little frustrating trying to meet her request because who wants to eat all that in a short weekend trip?  Being the…

Joël Robuchon

A new era in my life has started.  I no longer look forward to the wild partying, excessive drinking, and artery clogging buffet eating in Vegas.  Now when I think about Vegas, I get excited by the thought of eating something fancy and delicious.  Welcome to old age, right?  So the real reason behind my…

Raku

There are 2 off strip restaurants that people always talk about in the Sin City, Lotus of Siam and Raku.  While the former fell just a bit short of expectations, the latter was well worth the cab fare.  Some people say Raku is one of the best izakaya restaurants they’ve been to.  Smooth Obturator and…
