Saturday Night at the Bellagio

As you can imagine, Vegas restaurants were packed all weekend with all these food and wine lovers in town for Vegas Uncorked. For our "pre-birthday dinner", we tried to get in to one of the Bellagio restaurants, reservations were all sold out. This actually worked out for the best. After all the food involved in the events, we just felt like some appetizers.

We ate at FIX, where we shared four great appetizers, and drank some wine! We began with fig, gorgonzola and prosciutto flatbread and red chili shrimp.

Next were the "Adult Mac & Cheese" (fried with cheese-truffle oil sauce), and mini lobster tacos! No, we did not finish any of them.

We gambled a while, then on our way out, who was standing alone near the Valet entrance waiting for his driver? TOM COLICCHIO! I walked up, said hi, and he remembered us from Friday night's tasting. He asked about our dinner, and we told him we were holding out for his brunch tomorrow at Craftsteak. He was so adorable. Then we chatted with him about business in NY and LA, and his restaurant, Craftsteak, in Las Vegas. He was so friendly and down-to-earth. We talked until his driver arrived. (I behaved and did not pull out my camera..., but add a tie, and he looked exactly like this:

It was a memorable evening!

Looks amazing . . . I don't even want to think about how many calories there were in all of that. I bet Paul and I would have scarfed it all down LOL

I think I'm making that flatbread on Monday for our anniversary.

The appetizer dinner looks wonderful, and I commend you on your camera restraint with Tom C.
