Thursday Night in Vegas

Fountain at the Palazzo

Oh so many restaurants and chefs, so little time!

As food is one of the things we enjoy in Las Vegas, it was quite a responsibility to give Jerry and Paul the "chef's tour" of the city. Thursday night, we decided to keep it simple and do a pre-show early dinner at Batali and Bastianich's restaurant, Carnevino.

This was our first visit to Carnevino, but we had to try somewhere new with our very willing "guinea pig" visitors, right?

Brad and I had to skip lunch in order to eat at the ungodly early hour of 5:30. (We pointed the boys toward Caesar's after our Bellagio tour, and they found themselves at Bobby Flay's Mesa Grill for lunch).

As we had 7pm tickets to Jersey Boys, we tried the prix fixe dinner.

I began with an appetizer of fried calamari. Warm rosemary rolls are served with a choice of butter or lardo (oh my). Brad had the carpaccio with warm lardo crostini.

The restaurant looks like a New York steak house and the service was up to the standards of its owners. Jerry and I were impressed with our steak knives!

My filet was topped with a side of gorgonzola-mascarpone sauce. Oh yes!

5 different wines were enjoyed by the glass from the extensive wine list.

We had to hurry with our selections for dessert: espresso gelato, vanilla bean gelato, and my pomegranate sorbetto.

Then, we all enjoyed the wonderful Vegas production of Jersey Boys!
